Still new to posting after lurking and no idea if this is the right place to post this so please let me know if I need to delete or post elsewhere but a store near me has a few pairs of new without box/tags EG’s in 12.5UK. A split toe chukka in Utah with a danite sole and a black double monk cap toe (looked like maybe a lose thread on the tongue)

Boots are $510USD and double monks were I think $390USD. They aren’t my size and I have no interest in trying to get and mark up or re-sell but happy to try and find a way to grab them and ship to an enthusiast if someone is interested in them.

Goddamit, can't stand split toes, otherwise I'd have taken those.

I have a pair of unworn walnut country calf with rugged ridgeway soles 64 last boots UK 8.5. If anyone is interested please let me know. I just happen to have a few too many pairs in that last - I need room for something different. Best. Merv.

^^ What good is a rule that is not broken ? 😁

I wear formal wear and take my Galways in for a ride all the time. They hold up just fine ... and with menswear quality doing down the drain in most places and work places becoming more casual, I still come across as a bit over dressed. 82 is easily the most contemporary of the lasts. The first pic is 202 ..

There was also a black cap toe - I believe the Chelsea in 7.5UK on the 82 for about $385 but there was a fellow shoe guy looking at them who asked me about them while I was snapping a couple photos so longer shot that they will still be there but can check.

Question regarding Portland/ Albert.

I usually wear UK 7.5 to 8 on EG, 82/ 888 on UK8 feel a little bit roomy but comfortable. 82 on 7.5 is tight but okay.

I bought a pair of Portland in 7.5 before, it was too tight that I have to sell it. I then tried another pair in UK8, feel slight better but still little bit tight.

I have below 2 questions:
1. Would Portland get a bit loosen after couple wears? trying to determine if I should sell it or keep it.

2.Does Albert fit differently with Portland? Someone told me he feel a bit roomy in the Albert but wanted to collect more feeback.

Portland is just an unstructured house slipper, should soften considerably. As for the Albert, isn’t that a slipper too?
