    Though I'm not sure if it's from the "Ankle Boot" category.

    I have the identical pair from Foster's. Could I ask if you bought your usual size? I found myself going down a half size.

    Like you my boots are a half size smaller than my normal shoes, I tried my normal size and they were definitely too big. I am wearing them at the moment and at that size they are very comfortable.

    That picture's quite old, and I've already changed all of those things. Well, not the boots yet, but I'm about to.

    Although I can almost guarantee that you'd dislike my new style less, and I really need to stop coming to this forum since I realize I'm not going to find much acceptance here (and that's fine, we all have different tastes). [​IMG]


    Don't worry about it man. Do your thing. Stay here and learn.

    They look great. The B555 is a tricky last. You sometimes have to drop down a size to get it to fit. You could probably custom order one in an F fit as well. The reason is because it is a long nose last. Some people drop down a width in the Edward Green 82 last as well for similar reasons. I used to find the B555 a bit pointy but I am beginning to like it more and more.

    So drop down half a size or one measure of width from Craftsman?

    I'd say definitely not. I have both in 10.5G and if anything the 555 is a slightly snugger fit.

    Did you shoot that cat yourself?

    I wasn't alive when it was shot.

    How about this non-standard Dark Brown Cottesmore?

    It's marked as a 9D, so I guess it might be US sizing.

    Tried on it feels like a UK 8E. Certainly narrower and carries less volume than a standard UK 8.5 E

    I'm liking the 341 last more and more. Those are sleek and refined though not dainty. [​IMG]

    Those are nice. I saw some at Saks which allows you to special order Weston now. Very tempting.

    Why not? Those were one of the greatest scores of all time. I am still jealous, and it has been what, five years?

    what are the major differences between the RM Williams Craftsman french veal calf vs. yearling?
    is it just quality of leather?
    the yearling seems to offer more color choices.
