Certainly agree with visigoth! It'll look perfect with a nice high/mirror shine on the toecap.
Damn. Okay, you've convinced me: bull polish it is.

I'd love it if you'd guys would weigh in on the proportions, as demonstrated in the photos. Do they look okay to you? Not boats or cowboy boots?

I'd say they look fine actually. Doesn't look elongated to me.

You better follow up with pictures, son! The CS field boot is quite nice. I've considered getting one from Skoak, but they didn't have a UK 7, which is what I wear in the 234 last. Speaking of which, here's my double monk in Coimbra. I just need to polish it up with some wax.

I'll try to post up some pics soon.

Okay, here are some quick (not very good) photos of the Chelseas. Oddly enough, they look a whole lot bigger to me when I'm staring down at them from above -- I might take another couple of pictures later. As I say, the proportions are a bit more like what I associate with cowboy boots, but maybe I have the wrong image in my head: I have the chiselled thing in mind, but perhaps that's not the only way to make a legit Chelsea boot.

I think your super tapered jeans in those photos are definitely contributing to what you're perceiving as your Chelseas looking elongated. I'm not going to tell you to not wear them with jeans cut that narrowly at the lower leg...but, just sayin'...

I have two pairs of field boots. One pair on a leather sole (in suede) and one pair on Dainite (black calf).

Both are on the 316 last, but strangely the black pair feels and looks to be much wider. Both are size 8.

Does anyone have a similar experience with the 316 last?

@RogerP : any experience with the issue mentioned above as I think you also own multiple pairs of CS field boots?

Catch me up - what issue? I have one pair of CS field boots that I wear a LOT. No issues spring to mind.
In my case there seems to be a diffence in width between two pairs. Same last and same size. One pair fits like a glivg, the other is too wide.

See my other post above.

They are exactly the same length.
I’m literally just guessing, but could it be that they cut the suede model slightly “smaller” to account for the suede stretching?

I bought a pair of the field boots on the 316 last one full size down from US. I’m wondering if I should go down an additional half size as they seem a bit roomy with thin socks. With thick socks they are okay.

For reference I have single monks on the 401 last in size 10 that fit great with normal thin socks.

Any thoughts?

I did 1.5 on the 234 I have now, and on the 316 I recently ordered, but yet to receive.
