    I would still consult a professional GG fitter, but I have a pretty wide foot myself (4.5"). You would most definitely need MTO, try on a UK 10 G would be my advice. Anything smaller might be too tight...

    They were a good deal, about $600 and change for new GGs with shoe trees and bags...

    How long is the turnaround time for an MTO by the way? I've read anywhere between 3 months to 6 months.

    Expect about 5 months, but sometimes it's as quick as 3 months.

    I just confirmed a MTO from Leffot at the end of August and they said I can expect my shoes around mid December. So expect to wait at least 3 months.

    Very nice earthdragon, I love the TG73 last myself. If the MH71 last is indeed wider, I will have to look into it at some point. Last note, do they offer another blue Saphir polish? I have the Navy Saphir polish & cream, and they are quite dark.

    Thanks G


    Not AFAIK - I ordered the Navy, with the intent of Darkening these significantly.

    Are you referring to the 06 that Kirby sells?

    Figured. Try emailing Dean, or Nick. Hell, PM DWF. Perhaps one of them can tell you what might work well.

    Something else you might consider is finding a way to mix the Navy with the neutral cream to lessen the amount of pigment applied when polishing.

    After a quick chat with Kirby, his recommendation for lightening the polish (should that be your desire) was also to cut the 06 with some neutral or renovateur.

    Thanks for the tips - quite apprehensive and I will indeed try DFW, before commencing.

    I can certainly understand your apprehension.
