    So you didn't like these? About $260 including postage, no trees. They are made by Loake.

    Edit: There is a code for free trees as well.

    You'll get quite a bit of stretch out of the areas in No 2 pic. that will translate into height or width depending what you need.

    A monk with a different type of flap will have more flexibility in that spot. See below
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Flat feet and high arch aren't mutually exclusive - I have both - plus "loose ankles"

    Do you get a lot of foot pain - burning sensation - after walking or standing?

    I have orthotics - so do many others here.

    Romp, I'm not sure what a fair price would be, but I'd be interested in the latter pair, as that's my size.

    Obviously, if someone wants to take both pairs off your hands, then you should go for that offer.

    I'd be surprised if you lost more than 15% from 1 wear, Romps' maybe 20-25%?

    Is the free tree code still valid? It didn't seem to work for me

    The code works for me. Try again?

    As per my earlier reviews, the Herring/Loake Hilton leather will take longer to break in than Meermin classic line calf. Meermin Hiro last is very slightly tighter at the toes than 026 Last, but the heel area of 026 Last is slightly narrower and tighter than the Hiro Last. You need to size up 0.5 for Hiro ie for UK 8 Loake 026 Last, you need UK 8.5 Hiro Last.

    I've always thought that not wearing one was the answer to all of these problems, and more. I'm happy to accept it as a question of personal preference, but I would not have predicted that they were as popular here as they are.

    Of tomorrow for a bit of thrifting; I'm after a sweater in Melbourne.
    Where are your best thrifting locations in Melbourne city?

    P.S.
    Will check tomorrow morning before I'm on my way (sorry such a late post)
