    I have borderline wide feet and had to use shoe trees to get my feet in but these are already starting to feel as comfortable as my bedroom slippers!

    I've trying to decide between the Chelsea on the Rain last or the Jodphur on the Forest. Either would be worn with flannel trousers for business casual wear and jeans for casual wear. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Chelsea on Rain:
    Not instock: Would cost $150 more than the Jodphur
    I like a chiselled toe
    Not sure how I'll feel about the elastic sides

    Jodphur:
    $150 cheaper
    Not sure about the round toe. Does the forest last seem blobby?

    Simple - get one for your left foot and one for your right [​IMG]

    Seriously though, I think the brown is more versatile for casual wear.

    in natural light, saddle shell looks a bit darker. more like a light caramel color instead of tan.
