    Thanks!

    Yes, same size (10.5F) for both. I wasn't sure it was the correct size when I initially received them but it just took a couple hours of wearing them to be sure. My heels slip slightly in the Armfields and ever so slightly on the left foot of the Charlton so I'm getting the Saphir insoles to see if that helps. I think the 10F would be too small.

    As a side note, I was pretty excited to have shoes with a Dainite sole to help with walking through snow and ice. But today I had the opportunity to walk on some very icy sidewalks and determined that they will not prevent you from slipping on ice :embar:

    Dainite sole will last a lot longer compare to leather, due to its resistance to water and salt.

    Regarding imperfections in shoe leather, when I took out my chestnut Moores the other day I too noticed marks on the leather in a few random places. However, this does not bother me since they will only be apparent to me. Besides, I expect the leather to get a few scuffs here and there when I wear them so it's not a big deal to me.

    My experience is nothing will prevent skidding on black ice and the only thing that I've found that helps are those shoe with metal studs.

    Quote:Indeed - or hockey skates. ;-) With a recent flash-thaw and re-freeze everywhere looks like a skating rink right now. Still, I'll take synthetic soles over wet leather for icy conditions every single time.

    Nice pics. Those are actually the exact 2 pairs of shoes I have up for sale right now since I almost never wear mine. Was thinking of adding my Hannovers to the sale as well. I usually find myself reaching for my Alden bluchers over the Charlton or the Alden Indy over the Hannovers. I might have to rethink things. Your pics make me want to keep them and reach for those Charltons more often. And I agree that they look much better in person. I was really impressed with the sole on the Armfields.

    great deal on hardy aimes monkstraps if anyone is interested, http://www.thecorner.com/us/men/moccasins_cod44579701oa.html

    Supposedly these are made by alfred sargent though I cant seem to find where I read this atm.

    With the 10% off coupon they came to 225 too good a price so I took a chance and got a pair.

    Will report with more info once they come in.

    Buckles look the same as my two AS Ramsey DMs. I think you made a nice purchase for yourself.

    Are there any updates on new inventory for RTW Alfred Sargent? (It seems like all the inventory is dwindling at the AFPOS et al) Is a refresh coming anytime soon? TIA

    Very limited size options on many models at bodileys, pediwear, herring. Lots of models that get discontinued. AFPOS has the better selection but still not the complete range. I just hope that they get things going in such a way that they can keep a base model lineup available. Hopefully they do well through J Crew.
