    I'm happy with either wensum or leather. Would probably get more use out of a wensum sole though. Can G&G add metal taps to a leather sole?

    I'd say if we go leather maybe adding metal toe taps (or brass pegs if that's another option?). However I'd be very happy with the wensum for more usability.

    Metal taps are possible, i think it's an additional $100.

    Going by the pictures, would prefer cedar over chestnut. If consensus is mh71, will consider it.

    That's amazing looking did they get extra burnish on toe box & is it possible to get it done from gg so it looks like that pic?

    Do let me know so I can finalize it to cedar & single leather sole with toe tap. Like I said gents in this gmto are very flexible

    Give me a couple of hours and I might be in for them. I thought an F width might be better for me, but i'm second guessing myself since chelseas should probably fit a little more snug and I would wear them with thinner socks. I'm just wearing my St James II's in an E width in a half size down from my boots. I would prefer the wensum and i'm good with either chestnut or cedar.
