Very interested in a GMTO suede Chelsea. Grey and/or brown and/or calf, possibly.
Sollar is a bit of a wider fitting last. It s between Rain and Detroit I believe.
Here is an image of the Chelsea on the Sollar last
Simpson is way too narrow and angular for what I am looking for. Its a nice last but not for what I am after here
After wearing this Inca, I believe it is the right last for me.
I am an E (us) width with a high instep, and it is perfect. (1/2 down from Brannock)
I really want a suede and would do brown or gray. Just something comfy
I'd be interested in a suede Chelsea MTO, but I heavily prefer a leather sole over Dainite.
I could be in for grey/danite/Inca Chelsea or Jodhpur
I could be talked into a grey Chelsea on dainite, but it would have to be on a last with a wide option
I find all the chelsea boots fit rather loose. On a purchase of a Simpson Chelsea in a 9.5 I found it to fit more like a 10. Definitely longer and more instep room then a typical 9.5 would have had.
Those shoes have been tempting me quite enough without you piling on.
Sollar is wider fitting with soft square toe? Is that the only last with those qualities?
I like it. Not a Chelsea fan but with a medallion toe, I may reconsider.
A few talking about grey suede - found these at a sale in Stockholm, couldn't resist. The grey suede enhances lots of shades and life.
I would be down for Chelsea in mid to dark brown calf on dainite. Preferably Rain last. I love suede, but need to diversify.
We still have some 922 cordovan models on sale.
