i agree with my nephew and by the general rule of thumb you would need on the aberdeen last a 9.5 D

Many have reported unlined PTBs fit a bit snugger than the lined versions. I agree, but it's not enough to make a difference in sizing IMO. These are my standard 9.5Es.

Cigar chukka (received via trade)


And I'm hoping it doesn't get a little redundant with the #8 shell when my cap toe boots arrive sometime in August. satisfied.gif

wear in good health, #8 is the best, you must be at wharton

I'm really liking these. Surprisingly light and flexible for a cordovan shoe. The flat welt and single leather sole make it sleeker looking than your average PTB as well. I find the shape of the shoe suits black cordovan very well...


nephew,
wear in good health

minimal care needed. from nick horween himself.

"Very little maintenance is needed on Kudu Chromexcel. It’s a hand-curried leather, which means it has lots of oil in it already. A damp cloth and a brush is all you will need for care for several years."

i'm guessing eventually you throw some venetian on it.

cool, i didn't even realize kudu was chromexcel. i think probably some neatsfoot oil every once in a while (like not even once a year) might be good for it.

I treated my kudus with neatsfoot oil as horween recommends, did a really good job at revitalizing the leather after a season of snow and salt. Looks pretty much new
