    The Savoy's are my first green shoes and let me tell you they are beauties - you're going to be very happy with them!

    Wear them in good health

    Hi. Nick

    My pair is 5.5E. MH71. I have a high instep so heel to instep are snag. Ball joint part was comfortable and now is a little bit roomier. I am trying DIY cut half leather insole, which seems to work well without compromising overall fit of the shoes.

    I have Hove on the same last and I feel those looser than St. James. My concern is if I go down to D width, my instep would not fit well.

    Until Nick replies,

    I pretty sure this is Burnham and the color I think is Vintage Cedar.

    I hope Burnham in expresso on MH71 will be part of the non-fee MTO monthly program.

    Indeed that color is giving me a lot of problems. Sometimes it is very light, sometimes it is very reddish, sometimes it is like a real life chestnut such as in the case of Crockett and Jones chestnut antique color. Anyways.

    Correct. They are Vintage Chestnut. Sometimes it's the style of the shoe that determine the colour. For instance, a style such as Rothschild with so much brogueing requires a lot more antiquing than a plain vamp shoe like this Burnham. The antique cream needs to fill all of the punched holes before they are polished and this darkens the colour slightly. With the plain vamped shoe there is no need for the extra antique cream therefore leaving them this lighter colour. I've seen nearly all styles in Vintage Chestnut and I have never disliked any of the colour variations. It's always stunning!
