Yep I went on Wednesday afternoon.
There wasn't a lot of option in boots in when I arrived but luckily I take an 8 F which covered two of four pairs available in size 8. So I picked up:
Galway in Dark Oak 8 F
Galway in Clove Suede 8 F
Cranleigh in Dark Brown Utah 8 E but just roomy enough.
Dover Dark Oak in 8 F.

I will try to get some images up tomorrow but well pleased considering I usually find hardly anything in an F fitting.

It doesn’t look like they re-stocked after Monday then, all of those were there when I was there Monday afternoon - the brown Utah Galways I bought were an 8F. I was tempted by the DOAK Dovers but they’re a bit too formal for my needs nowadays.

In general, do you guys prefer flat or round laces? Does it change based on the style (boot, split-toe...)?

I totally loved the look of flat laces on a dover, but I had to keep flipping/correcting them to keep them looking sharp. It drove me crazy and made me like round more to avoid the hassle.

Just trying my Cranleigh I bought from the sale. Even though I thought I may get away with it I think I definitely need an F fitting. There is some creasing on the vamps due to my high instep and they are bit tight despite what I told myself in the shop..

Lovely boots though, I was very tempted by them.

If a little more room in the forefoot would help then it might be worth investing in a shoe stretcher - I’ve had one for years and it’s helped a lot with shoes that are close to fitting but not quite (my feet are different sizes so fit is always a compromise).
