Pre-wear maint done; time to break them in at home.
Now that is a spectator shoe!!!!!!! Great choice
no way the 804 fits like the rain.
I've had 3 pairs of rain, and not one of em fits like the 804.
Might have to go half size smaller
Is it as wide as Rain?
Can you compare instep, heel, and width of 804 against the 946?
I think you said you size your Jodhpurs the same as your 946 shoes. Or maybe that was someone else.
Usually, for me at least, a strongly tapered toe box almost negates the width across the ball; I have to go up in width and down half a size: (7.5E > 7F).
feels wider even; AND longer.
Do you find that going up a width and down 1/2 size would result in a wider heel and heel slippage?
I guess it depends on the maker, but I'd rather have slight heel slippage than the shoe be too long and have my foot sliding back and forth, particularly when I'm walking downhill.
That's a very nice picture of a pair of beautiful shoes. Thanks for sharing.
My thoughts exactly. I got home late yesterday, so I'll post up pics tonight for sure.
I find 804 last wider than rain in the toebox
Saw these at the mall from Zegna, there top shoe line. They look eerily similar to the Bonafe captoes that I just ordered. What do you guys think? Who is Zegna getting to make there shoes now anyways? I think these are Blake stitched.
What's the fit and price like?
Didn't try them, I wasn't wearing the proper socks. The price was $650.00 Canadian, which is basically $6.50 American
Here's my comparison:
It's a rain lasted adelaide, and the bonafe 804 captoe oxford.
Hope the pics show well. These are both size 9.5 UK. I find that the 804 has a high-ish instep like rain, and it's about 4-5 mm longer overall in the same sizes.
