    Thank you, some might call it too brave but they are darker than they look on my bad picture. I like them very much.

    These shoes are simply gorgeous. I showed them to my girlfriend who still hates green shoes...

    Great combination. Myself, I just cannot do green. I have a hard enough time wearing my sole green tie (ironically, I wore it yesterday).

    I think they are brave but in a good way. If you know how to put it together, you stand out in a positive way as someone who has great style.

    No...They don't offer hollowed (or even hallowed) shoe trees..would be nice though, but weight=reliable.

    Hi I was hoping someone here could assist with a sizing question.
    What size would I wear in the TG73 last?

    I am a 9 D UK in EG 82
    8.5 UK in C&J 360 last
    8.5 UK in Carmina Simpson and Robert lasts

    I have a slightly narrow foot. I'm assuming a 9 E UK would work for G&G TG73 last? Is this a fair assumption?

    Thanks!

    Go for the green. The world needs to get over the perception that shoes must be brown or black!

    I'm a bit concerned about the fit of these on you. They should not be buckling that far up the vamp.

    What are your thoughts on the fit.

    i hate to say it, but the only to really know, is try it on. the simpson is pretty narrow, and my carmina and GG sizing is equal, but its a crapshoot until you actually try em on.

    good luck.

    For me the Carmina Simpson and G&G TG fit the same size. I too have a just slightly narrow foot.

    That's unfortunate. I love those hallowed hollow shoe trees. :(

    JLP costs 2x. :((
