Stevent, NOS is highly subjective, especially shell. Generally a 'good price' might be ... less than $300...?

Thank you sir. Yes tts fit. I tried all 3, 1/2 down, tts, 1/2 up.

Notice there are zero shell styles on the J. Gilbert list, not even black or #8. And what is Regina Grain calf? Anyone got any pics of that? I'd be interested to see how the hunting green suede turns out as well.

It's political. Sazon disagrees w most of Ulysses s. grant's policies.

Makes complete sense now...

post #58482 of 87890

could anyone tell me how number 1 last (allen edmonds leeds) compares to the barrie last (alden all weather walker)?

 

i'm a 9E in the former and want to figure out the right sizing for the latter.

I wear the same size in the 1 last as I do in Barrie. 8D in both.

 

The 1 last feels a bit snugger than the Barrie, but it still works for me in the same size. I assumed I'd be an 8.5 (my TTS) in the 1 last, but when I went and tried it on the 8 was perfect. Glad I tried it on before I placed a couple orders. Could have been an expensive, non-returnable mistake!
