FWIW smartbrother, I'm a 10.5C in Alden Barrie and anywhere from a 10.5D to 11C in various USA made shoes. The Dover in UK10E fits really well -- maybe a mm or two wide, but overall a great fit.

Ok. Just trying to use your experience in fit to guide mine 🤷🏽‍♂️
It’s an expensive game of ‘Russian Shoulette‘ you’re contemplating. I’ve lost a good chunk of change trying armchair fit assessment. Would strongly suggest you seek out a stockiest with a good return policy and give them notice of your intent so they can help. Good luck.

Thanks. Leffot has their JL advice on their website, but I also like to poll others 👍🏽.

Just because I’m bored out of my mind, I figured I’d post some contrast pics between snuff suede (what I consider to be a mid-brown suede) and oyster suede (a light brown suede). These pics also show the differences between the 202 and 606 last. I take the same size in both. Hope this helps people somehow with sizing/last decisions.

Contrasting the Snuff with the Oyster makes the Snuff look quite dark. Appreciate you taking the time to do this.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
