    It really seems like Loake is the only UK manufacturer who cheerfully centers to those with wide feet. In Europe it's Vass. In US, Allen Edmonds.

    Maybe @Leaves will be able to update us on it.

    Two photos of my newest arrivals - Connaughts in Vintage Rioja (thank you very much, Mr. Anderson at Bespoke-England!).

    Related, here's hoping we have all the numbers needed to get the Walktons in Kudu/Cherry moving to the next level soon! I'm already planning outfits to complement these beauties! Anyone still considering this, now is the time, go for it! :fonz:

    Great choice and yes I hope we can get that Walkton GMTO finalized if we don't have the numbers already. So if anyone wants in, get in ASAP

    no problem and are they TG73 or Deco? They look very elongated like the Deco but the angle of the pics can be very misleading! They look great regardless!!!!!

    Appreciate it, thanks mw313. They're actually TG73s. I don't think I'd go for a Deco unless I tried them first, they look a bit aggressive, and I'd hate to have a pair of extra-expensive shoes that were too painful to wear on a regular basis. I do have to say, even though my Connaughts and my Walktons that I showed earlier are both TG73 lasts in 12E, the Connaughts feel much wider than the Walktons. Hmmm...

    Not sure of that - @Saratorial_Splender still owns that title, methinks. But I thank you for your words, kind sir. :cheers:
