I am quite excited today I just received second hand pair of Shell Cordovan C&J Harvard from a forum member. and when I say second hand there is practically no ware on the soles at all.
I was quite worried about the fit not having bought C&J before, the over all fit is quite good although a little snug across from the big toe knuckle ( if that is the correct term? ) so I am thinking that they should become a little less snug in that area with a few days ware or should I take them to cobbler and have them stretched a little by some one whom knows what he is doing.
I will post some photos shortly if any one is interested.
I don't own any but I think horses arse is hard to stretch.
It is, although they are unlined and seem to have no significant stitching over the point where the discomfort is, so it could go either way.
I'd wear them for short periods a few times to see if it goes away on its own.
