    I awoke this morning thinking I had dreamed of an awesome C last captoe, and realized I looked at Ascot's photo before bed. Any other examples out there today?

    Do my eyes betray me now...or are those women's unmentionable parts in that brogue medallion? They'd certainly suit the F U photo topic.

    Brogue medallions are something of a Rorshach test, I think.

    More pics from Ascot shoes fb site. Wish they had taken a closer shot to compare the U and the C lasts. Can't really tell much difference from these pics

    The C looks like the U after a diet. I'm wearing my U today to reassess sizing. My pinky toe may hate me, but I think a C in the same size would work.

    On another note, has anyone ever sized up on a 3636 boot? No particular reason. [​IMG]ebay 10.5 whisky[​IMG]

    That's way too much for those boots! Maybe full shell but not shell/scotch.

    I think that's just another U last and they just wanted to be juvenile

    "Best Offer" could get interesting (plus the extra promotions eBay runs). At least you wouldn't have to worry about the thin shell shaft NAMOR mentioned.

    In the US at least, there are "eBay Bucks" that give 2% back toward a future purchase. On certain days, they are increased based on purchase price (up to 4 times), so about $100 on a $1,200 item.
