what are your guys thoughts on an unlined shaft?
I don't have enough knowledge to comment on the advantages/disadvantages, seems off for quite a formal boot though?
Would prefer it to be unlined until the bottom area given Cali weather and a bit more flex with the higher shaft
unlined shafts are fairly common with high-end boots. some examples: EG Galway, JL William Boot, G&G Arran Chukka. Would this affect sizing? just curious
Would an unlined shaft still get the 10mm or so edge inside the boot like unlined Alden's do?
I think I just answered my own question.
For those asking for comparisons between Oscar and Barrie or Simpson: I don't know, sorry.
I found these boots extremely comfortable. I like that I can lace the shaft tightly enough that it's close to my leg (but you don't have to). And I've never had a problem with lack of flexibility impinging on my ability to walk.
Just to throw it out there, any information regarding oscar last? I really like the robert last. is there any opinions on that?
What's the advantage in an unlined boot?
I am in favor of unlies shafts. The ones from both EG & G&G are wonderful. Also, I have a Lobb cukka that is unlined and it fits and feels nice.
I need furtehr info on this MTO as I joined this thread late.
I am interested, but being size US 13, I need specs on this one. Help!!
Again, I would be in, but I need info. whether they can do US13 and price???
Glad to see you back!
I am not familair with Carmina lasts, but anything like the C&J 348 would be great for me. I am not a fan of very rounded toes.
I think the Simpson would be closest, no?
I can put up a pair of Tetbury's on the 348 next to a pair of Simpson lasted Chelseas, if that would help any?
