    Just received a pair of Loakes from AFPOS. Shipped from the UK to Australia in a matter of days, free shoe trees and a free tin of Saphir polish. And they fit perfectly. Great service; thank you Julian and Sarah.

    Hi LOUIS XIV,

    I think the 6.5E would be a good fit for you - as these are an E fitting (slim) rather than an F (standard) the extra 5mm internal length will also give you a bit more width.

    They are beautifully made boots of great quality.

    Regards

    Julian

    Hi LOUIS XIV,

    I could measure the internal length for you on this boot to give you peace of mind?

    Let me know

    Hi Julian,
    I'm looking at the Loake Pimlico. I'm typically a 10.5 B or C in US sizing. What size do you recommend? I'm leaning towards 9.5, but i have read on here people going 1.5 sizes down from US size on the capital last, saying it is quite high volume. Further info, i have a relatively high instep. Could you provide some input?

    Thanks,

    ^ I'm a US9D and had some Capital last shoes in UK8F. I found they fit very tts lengthwise, but ran a bit wide / high volume at the forefoot. If you're a US B or C width, I don't think the Capital last will work for you. A 1½ size US-UK conversion probably won't make up for this; you'll just end up with chukkas that are too short and wide.

    Just ordered a pair of the Crocket & Jones Waltons. Definitely outside of my typical style but the shoes are gorgeous and the price seems great. I am a small US 8.5 so I am hoping they fit. Looking forward to getting them.

    Hi asdf,

    Thank you for your message -the Loake Pimlico is a standard UK F fitting, equivalent to the US D fitting, therefore, as mentioned, you could try dropping 1.5 sizes to cut the width and the length, but this still might be a bit wider than you would normally wear.

    You can always return the boots if you are unsatisfied with the fit, but the choice is yours.

    Any help we can give, just ask.

    Regards

    Julian

    I wanted to give everyone an update that the Crockett and Jones Waltons arrived today and indeed are gorgeous. I have no doubt that I am going to get a lot of interest when I wear these. In a perfect world these might be a tad wider but I think they will be fine. Julian and A Fine Pair of Shoes got these here exceedingly fast and in great shape. I would highly recommend buying from them! Thanks Julian.

    im a US 10.5 D. Is it possible to get church's consul in my size?

    these shoes fit me really really well b/c i have a flat foot and i have looked for them everywhere. everyplace has them for full price and if i can avoid paying that i would really like to.

    Great company, great shoes and even better customer service!! Is there a particular shoe tree that you recommend for the AS Moore? I cannot find a shoe that goes well with the last.
