No more shoes for a while. Still have an Inverness and C&J Weymouth coming...
hello everyone! im mike from LA. first post here.
My very first Edward Green Chelsea in slate color. i know they look black but look grayish under sunlight
picked it up pretty cheap on ebay from Liz @ Shoes of distinction ( i believe she sells factory seconds)
I know i should probably get a proper shoe tree first....anyone have any experience with saphir shoe tress???
Saphir shoe trees are fine. Whats wrong with the ones you've got?
I don't think yours are the chelsea model though as the heel is different.
The modern chelseas also have a 'swann neck', something older models dont have.
Currently offered in RTW:
I believe those are the Albemarle. Wanted to get those in Slate myself. Today I have my Slate alternative: Curious to see if others have shoes/boots in Slate... pics!
Just purchased these stunning EG Alderley boots from a fellow SF member.
I am very pleased with them...but there seems to be excess leather -- at least from my vantage point -- towards the back of the boots when I wear them. They fit me well. The boots are my size in the 202 last. But what causes this -- my thin ankles and narrow feet? Is this normal?
Thoughts would be appreciated. Can I get an insert for this area of the boot?
This is normal for boots, nothing to worry about. What color is it if I may ask?
can you post the b&s thread this was in?
Thanks. That makes me feel better.
Hazel Antique. Just beautiful...
Youre absolutely right! they are albemarle! thank you! oh my those oundles are beaaaaaauuuutiful!
oh i figured they might be little better than this nordstrom one i picked up...but i guess its not all that important huh?
Lovely boots , nothing wrong with the fit from what I can see. Enjoy.
I was down in Carmel on Wednesday and saw these at Khaki's of Carmel. They had just come in. I love this classic look combined with the Dianite sole.
Is this walnut country calf? I was initially worried that my walnut Galways might be a little 'flat' in colour as they wore, but they've developed some nice, subtle tones in the patina.
