    Black grain jumper boots. These are fantastic. Oscar last fits my foot pretty perfectly. Very happy.

    Those are really nice. I've admired all the variations of black jumpers but I don't seem to wear much black footwear when dressed casually. I think they are really smart looking all the same.

    I'm about a 13.5 on the Brannock (not great for comparison, since I tend to go up to 14 or down to 13 in most US brands). These are a 12.5. Plenty of room in the toe box, but the vamp and heel are snug. I wear a 12 in Inca (although I could do a 12.5 there, my Inca pair is suede), a 12 in Detroit, and a 12.5 in Rain (fits well in the front but a bit of heel slip...I really need to add tongue pads).

    This is only my second pair of black footwear (outside of my gym sneakers)...the other is a pair of black captoes. I think they'll work really nicely with grey jeans. I really like how the grain texture adds a bit of visual interest, since I think black footwear can look a bit boring sometimes.

    I waffled on those for weeks. I think they are bad ass. Grey jeans for sure. Can't wait for more jumper offerings, Skoak has a nice one coming if I remember correctly for fall. Different than last batch.

    Wish Carmina had a nice Burgundy or Navy grain. Navy grain jumper would be killer.

    Hey since you're that seize you should also join the "large feet thread" there are a few of us on there to help others with big feet and your sizing across all of your shoes could be a great help to others as well as helping you with finding shoes and other brands too. leaves is also a part of it.
