    I wear the 99 half a size larger than the 87. AFPOS told me it was necessary and Sarah was spot on.

    It is a bit funny that Chay at AS said different. No doubt Sarah was right.
    Wonder if it's possible to have them lasted out a bit or simply return them. I think they are second only to EG Dover but at a very different price point.

    Found the e-mail. I reminder her that I take a 7.5UK in the 87 last. Sarah replied, "I would recommend a size 8 in the 99 last, the 87 last is much more roomy and wider."

    Seems like you got caught on her exact point- width.

    Hi, does anyone know if you can go to their factory in northhampton and purchase a air directly from there?

    Thanks

    Not sure but I am sure if you contact Chay he could tell you.

    My Moore in Cherry arrived earlier today, here's some pictures of the shoes right before sunset.

    It's hard to describe the colour as it varies depending on the sunlight, but I would say they're are a little more reddish than CJ chestnut. They fit my foot very well and was a great addition to my collection! :)

    Indeed I have just received an email from AFPOS about that too. Is anybody interested in another MTO? For example a wingtip in cherry calf?

    when did this happen? I just removed myself from their mailing list precisely because they weren't shipping exclusives worldwide anymore
