As expected, am very pleased. The initial colour out of the box was a bit of a surprise, as they were a rather flat brown, not the vibrant red cherry I was expecting. After a small application of conditioner and some neutral polish the depth of colour came through beautifully. I've decided to try some mahogany Saphir cream as suggested earlier in this thread. I was also pleasantly surprised with the amount of room in the toe box as compared to C&J 348 last. Now to see if I can learn to get a great mirror shine @muddy250
Congrats! They look great The mahogany cream does bring the colour out yes. I find they change dramatically depending on the lighting too. Beautiful shoes. Good to hear they fit well too, they are roomy up front despite the shape. The elongation and width help there. Neutral pate deluxe on the toes
20% off at AFPOS, if anyone is interested. I just ordered the Radwell oak. With the sale and discount code, it was about $370USD.
Yep. Incredible deal and I'm considering a pair myself. What size did you take in comparison to your other shoes?
I took the 12F. I am a 46 in Vass F last, 46.5 in U last. I am a 12 E in most AE. I have a pair of AS Bristol handgrade on the 48 (I think) last in 12 wide. I got those second hand, and there is no size markings on the inside. My feet don't fill the toe, but the rest of the shoe fits well.
The Moore in cherry is really growing on me...
Hopefully somewhere with a size 6 will offer a discount soon
Congrats! They look great!
