    Thank you Sir!So lucky you have the same boot.Have another question for you:)
    Is the shearling covered in the whole shoes or just the shoe barrel?

    It’s only covering the shaft of the boot.

    I, for one, vote to start calling the shaft the shoe barrel. Huge improvement.

    Just wanted to say how much of a fan I am of Mes Chausettes Rouge......I'm from Canada, but travel often to Europe for business, and have had the pleasure of shopping at this lovely establishment. The selection is great, and if you are ever in Paris, it is definitely worth a stop by; the shop is in a quiet little neighbourhood, which itself is lovely to see and experience. You can buy from Mes Chausettes with confidence....

    Whats going on over here?? Inverness on some sort of exotic skin? Or just badly, maltreated pair of shoes

    Also, shoes are definitely too small for you. Bulging ball of foot and instep too high for shoes. Size up.

    not exotic and definitely not maltreated. Just a nice well worn pair with lots of character on it. Just the burnishing came off a little in the front where the shoe bends. I may opt to add a little black color in my Renovateur to restore the burnishing back to new (very easy) but not sure if I want to do it at the moment.

    As for sizing, I don't think I can go to even half a size higher. It's called high instep (which some of us have) and the solution to this is not moving up a size. It's called bespoke but it's also called a lot of money. Looks good to me.

    That's an unusual and interesting contrast.

    For as long as I’ve been on these boards (12 years), there’s been a preference by many for the 82 last over the 202 in classic captoe shoe Chelsea.

    I drank the cool aid and ended up with a number of 82’s. About 10 years ago I lucked into a black Chelsea at deep discount in the C202 last. I doubt that I would have gone for a 202 otherwise.

    On receiving the shoes, I immediately thought they were beautiful, perhaps even more than the 82. Recently I tried the 202 this time in “D” and I have to say hands down, this is the most elegant, sublime pair of EG shoes I’ve ever seen. It beats the 82 last hands down.

    It appears to me the notorious reputation of the 202 as a “bulbous” inelegant last is perhaps restricted to larger widths (E and F). It’s hard to describe the beauty and elegance of this shoe in C or D width. It needs to be seen to be appreciated.

    No idea who has come-up with the word 'shaft' to describe the leg of a boot, now you want it replaced with something equally, if not more, obscure.

    Why not stick to the classic term 'leg' (of the boot)?
