    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Hi Julian,

    I don't think the size difference will be noticeable at all IRL without any deep scrutinizing. My wife has a few pairs heels & boots she got from ebay are mismatched in size (5.5 & 6). And I have never noticed any difference whatsoever. Having said that, I am not sure whether you would be able to order a pair of EG with a difference size. Please keep us posted.

    BTW, going up a width should be 6E, not 6C.

    @budapest12 Came up with these pics after a google search. This is a nice color. I've seen it look a bit redder, too. Thanks cwh812 for the pics.

    BTW, you search almost anything shoe related on google and SF is always the second or third hit. We have quite the wealth of knowledge here!

    Quote: You and I are in the same boat. My left foot is about a half size larger than my right. I'll do some digging and let you know what I find. EDIT: It looks like Alfred Sargent used to allow odd-size pairs as part of their GMTO's, but not sure if they've gotten rid of that policy or not. I'd be more than willing to go in on a GTMO with you if that's still the case.

    Ding ding ding - exactly. I want something resilient but elegant enough for office wear. I don't plan to wear them in a river or while hunting, etc, but they would be go-to boots for work days with bad rain and snow. Skoak's model does work but I prefer a darker color, don't need shearling, and really like the look of Galways I've seen on the 606 (which can be made with ridgeway/medway).

    I am not sure the 606 can be used in the galway any longer at least not without TD.

    Laufer and I are planning a Nevis GMTO in Mahogany or Almond CC for late August timeframe...They would be 606 and CC so why not jump on that?

    Sounds like a plan if Almond CC is the decision.

    I think you guys are leaning Almond, which is way too light for my taste. Mahogany would get my attention. But I also suspect you do leather soles, which I can't do. I'll watch intently though.

    I have so many dark colors already hence my preference for the almond. The light color also makes the split toe and apron pop IMO.

    Over 1k on that boot already with defects. I would be shocked if he gets it.
