    Yes. Not as heavily antiqued as they are on the website which is actually my preference.

    I won't pretend to be an expert on leather. I got these as a replacement for my DC Lewis (via Kent Wang) boots which I had to sell because they were too big. Leather seems to be on par with them.

    Maybe Daniel can chime in with leather comments. I know they don't divulge too much info.

    thread revival gents.
    Any further updates reviews of CU shoes and boots. Seems like the fav is the Louis boot, which I am also looking at ordering.

    thanks

    Patliean1, Thanks. They are U.S. size 11. I'm normally between 10.5-11.0. The soles are softer feeling than I thought they would be but they are holding up very well. I tend to be rough on shoes, catching the toe as I walk etc. and no damage to the edges yet. I live in Michigan and have been wearing these in the snow/slush also; traction is fine.[​IMG]

    I'm new to the world of awesome (and accordingly priced) shoes and what I found is Cobbler Union provides equally awesome customer support.

    I have small-ish feet for my height - I'm 5'11" and I wear a US 9.5 - 10 size shoe. Given Cobbler Union's shoes were in a new price bracket for me I decided to send an email to customer support and got a response from a guy named Stephen. I sent him pictures and measurements of my foot, then he consulted with the owner and they suggested a size. Two shipments, a few weeks and many email exchanges later I arrived on a UK 8 for both the Francis III and Noah II models.

    A lot of effort and back-and-forth went into this from the Cobbler Union side and I'm happy to be ordering my first pairs of insanely beautiful kicks!

    I don't think you would be a 8UK. Most likely 8.5 or 9UK if you are a 9.5-10US

    Heh, then maybe I'm really a US 9 and have worn too many sneakers!

    Thanks for the notes.

    Just got my "Louis" in the post a few days ago and while I have not taken them for a stroll I thought I would share a few pictures of this very elegant boot.
