    Hi, AS have stopped selling their exclusive and country lines completely, including the Armfield, from late last year. Unfortunately we will not be getting anymore of these styles.

    Well what a shame, I remember to have seen it somewhere. I hoped it was not the case ...
    I should have taken the offer you did before for these shoes !

    It will be something else in that case, thank you for your answer.

    Yes, if you want one I would take this opportunity sooner rather than later.

    Thank you for the reply. I have a lower volume foot and have some difficulty with the last of the say tthr trickers Stowe. Anyone think I’d also have an issue with Hanover ? Or sizing down 1/2 from my us 9d to 7.5uk would be Recommended ?

    For those of us in the states my best fitting shoe is an AE PARK avenue..which runs a tad narrow.

    That is unfortunate indeed. IIRC, AFPOS carries only country and exclusive line shoes/boots? Does this mean AFPOS will stop carrying AS altogether? If so, will AS be replaced with another manufacturer? Thanks

    Kbuzz my 9D 65 last AEs are snug fitting with dress socks. I think if you go with 8E in AS 87 last you'll be fine with thick boot socks . You could try medium weight socks as well. Initially the Hannovers felt too roomy, but after I broke them in and got used to them I transitioned from heavy weight to medium weight socks.

    How does 401 fit compared to 234?
    The 234 last double monk fits me comfortably. I took the same same as the Carmina rain last. Rain fit snugly yet comfortably, anything slimmer than rain will not work on my feet.

    The 401 last is similar in width to the 234 last, although the last length is slightly shorter, might consider 1/2 a size down from your usual 234 last size?

    Some real life pictures of the Carlos Santos field boot that @Afinepairofshoes has MTO'd. They have quickly become one of my favourites.

    Lovely sale. I picked up some accessories, cream, and lasted shoe trees for both AS 109 and 724 lasts. I've been wanting to get lasted tress for about two years LoL
