1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I decided not to keep two pairs of Grenson Masterpieces I bought from Bennies. Both a US size 13D. Thought I'd offer them here and save Chris the trouble: The first pair is a Norwegian toe Chukka boot in what Edward Green would call dark oak - a beautifully antiqued dark brown. The soles are not channeled on this pair (prototype maybe??) but they definitely aren't Footmasters - with the exception of the lack of channeling, the rest of the boot is definitely up to Masterpieces standards: [​IMG] [​IMG] The second pair is a classic penny loafer in tan: [​IMG] [​IMG] Handsewn toe on both. Both brand new and perfect. $149 each, plus actual shipping costs to wherever you are. The first person to PM me gets them. Remember, these are $575 plus tax at Paul Stuart.

    Can I ask if those shoe trees are a good fit? I had a hard time finding shoe trees that were narrow enough to fit my 7.5D pairs. I ended up carving up a pair of shoe trees to make them fit and I would rather avoid that in the future.

    Yes, they fit well, but that won't be a help to anyone here (those babies are old and I bought them from a consignment shop.) My advice on shoe trees is to buy them from a variety of sources and swap them around until you find the best fit for each shoe. That is what I do.

    I don't have much experience with Alden or Allen Edmonds personally, but the Grensons run very true to size in my opinion.

    A Harris- Did your first responder to the offer for the boots take them ?
    My question on channeling was simply a definition.
    What is is the term and how does it relate to the boot fit?
    thanks, ferry1950

    Update - the chukka's sold, but the loafers are still available.

    As for channeling - a channeled sole is one where the sole stitching is hidden in a "channel" so that the sole is smooth. It does not affect the fit at all.

    A.Harris- Thanks for the update and keeping me in the loop.
    I have enough brown loafers, but if you run into anymore 13 D quality shoes, please post.
