    Happy New Year everybody.
    These are the Tribune 2 chukkas in dark brown reverse calf he recently launched on his website.

    The beveled waist on a dainite soled outsole is something I haven't seen before.

    Nice! Do you have pics of the sole? I have a Crispin's chukka which comes with slightly beveled dainite.

    Sorry for the late reply. Was away from home.

    Here are some pics of it. A little hard to capture the beveled waist, but it's there.

    Hey folks, I'm thinking about taking the plunge on the Argentum RTW Optio on the classic round last but am looking for input on sizing. I probably get the best fit in a 9 UK in the Bonafe 804 last due to my high instep. I have also been liking the 202 last from EG in a 9 UK (but all of my 202 last shoes are derbies so it's difficult to discern how this would jive with my instep in an oxford). I am usually a 10 US and Antonio's site suggests a 9.5 UK. Thoughts anyone?

    That sounds about right to me.

    If it helps at all I wear UK6E in EG 202 (derby; specifically Dover) and UK6.5E in AM Argentum round (also derby - chukka and centurion).

    That does help as I was thinking the 9.5E would be the one. How do you like the Centurion versus the Dover?

    Construction wise there’s no contest. AM wins hands down.

    That said, I find Dovers very comfortable. Especially the unlined suede ones.

    While I'm sure the ideal shoe tree for AM are the lasted AM trees, I'm wondering if anyone uses the Skoak trees in their AM shoes. If so, can you comment on well they fit? I know I can always purchase AM trees, but just curious if anyone has used Skoak trees with their AM shoes.

    Just received the Tribune 2 dark brown reverse calf chukkas with a slim, beveled dainite/vibram sole. Very comfortable on a first wear and definitely something I see myself bringing along on travels.

    I picked up these up from the Sabot during their Christmas sale. Extremely pleased with them. Thanks to those who offered sizing advice. The guide on the website was pretty spot on.
