    I get down to Big Sur and Carmel about once a month. It is one of my two favorite areas in all of California (Joshua Tree being the other). The Hwy 1 drive is quite possibly the best road in America for a performance car and the views of the coast are spectacular. I almost always stop in at Khaki's because the inventory changes so quickly and they always have a lot of colorful visuals for my abitofcolor.tumblr blog, more so than any one menswear store in SF. (My wife loves Carmel because the place is so dog friendly including the beaches and we often just drive down for lunch )

    Where else will you find Edward Green nubuck suedes with blue linings?? I love how they push the envelope on color and style.

    What car do you have?

    Are you on Khaki's payroll?

    Hey guys I need a little advice here.
    Yesterday I may have 'accidentally' pulled the trigger on my first pair of Edward Greens on sale. I am still trying to explain to the Missus how $500 is a great deal for a pair of shoes so tracking down a matching set of trees seems to be out of the question for now. I know it sounds like sacrilege but are there any generic shoe trees out there you would recommend as a reasonable backup?

    I think its only appropriate that you put $10 nordstrom trees in your EGs. That way you can explain to her how cost sensitive you are

    No JAB 3 for $25?

    For my 6.5/7E shoes, I find that the Epic XS fits quite well all around (might not fit all the way to the toe box that neither do the EG trees). Not sure how the proportions work out with larger sized shoes.

    By the way, $500 for EG is a pretty good deal.

    My shearling lined Galways finally landed!
    Two month after shipping confirmation and a month after the last snow melted, probably the parcel travelled all around the world.

    $25 might be the straw that breaks the camels back

    It is a very nice causal boot. However, isn't the ankle area a bit tight?Did they take consideration of the extra material during the cutting process?

    I have a thick ankles, so every boot are more or less tight, on these the ankle area is at least very soft.
    There is another problem - too wide in the arch area, no support for the arch. You can see it on the pic.
    Can be solved by orthopedic insole.

    So you have a chunky ankle and no curve on the arch area? I am sorry to here that, however EG is pretty good for their RTW arch support, I am sure your MTO is the same.

    No, sorry I was not clear enough - the boots are too wide in the arch area, not the foot. My SC and Vass has better fit in this area, while the Carmina are too wide here as EG.
