    Oh, and I am between a 10 and 10.5 US. Usually I am a 10.5.

    These 9.5 Highburys fit perfectly. Strangely, I ordered two pairs of Loake 1880s recently in size 9.5UK and am beginning to think that a 9UK would be a better fit. I am not sure if that helps at all...

    Copying across my post from Ask Andy's...

    C&J "Highbury"

    It's a little bit more expensive than other C&J regular line shoes - can think of them as regular line plus. Soles are stitched aloft.



    At 380 EUR - I think that is actually a bit less than the bench grades - which currenly go for US$475.

    Besides the fact that the Aintree is a Handgrade C&J while the Highbury is "only" a Benchgrade C&J, the latter comes with a different last (#348) that is sleeker, pointier, more chisel-like and to some, including myself, more attractive than the 337 last of the Aintree.

    Most of the regular line shoes are EUR 360 from the same website...?

    Here are a couple of pictures of the Highburys:

    I polished them to be slightly darker than they were originally (the third picture is closest to the current colour).


    Water,

    Did you get this effect with wax or cream?

    How does the leather compare between benchgrade and handgrade?
