    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 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. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    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.
