Hello, I saw the sale online I am almost ready to pull the trigger. I will appreciate sizing advice.

I am:
- 10.5 UK F in Church’s 173, Loake Capital, Cheaney 125 and 130
- 10 UK in Heschung Odeon (in the middle of 10 and 10.5)
- 10.5 UK in Carmina Detroit
- 10.5 US in Alden Indy in 405

Which size should I take in Leo?

Thank you

I placed this message today and serching found this answer to the same question from Grant Stone:

Just one note - The indy will fit bigger than our Leo. Many will wear the same size but our Leo is shorter and not as full. If your Indy boot is a perfect fit or possibly a bit snug to begin with and you would like a similar feel, we always suggest a width up (10.5E).
My Indy 405 / Trubalance in 10.5 fit a tad snug, so maybe I should go with 10.5E or 11D.

I hope the GS guys can help me. At that moment I didn't made the purchase due to UPS's awful service in my country but maybe I will take a deep breathe an start my GS collection.

I wear 9.5D in trubalance and barrie, the barrie fits more snug, and wear 9.5D in the Alexander last which GS states to take the same size for their Alexander and Leo last. If I'm wrong, feel free to correct me, anyone.

Does anyone by chance have both the waxed tobacco and the earth colors? Very curious to see the two side by side and how they actually compare.

I am looking forward to the Black Friday sales to see what is for sale. Although, I have to buy some stuff from Spier & Mackay and X-Mas gifts too so this coming month my credit card isn't going to like me lol

@GrantStone is honey glazed shell basically natural shell with glazing process? Or it has some color difference from natural shell?
Couldn’t find much side by side picture on internet to figure out the color...

I don‘t know how they make it, but it’s magnificent, My GS honey shell Ottowas are among the shoes in my collection. If they ever do another pre-order for the plain toe honey shell boot, so that those of us who are EEE can participate, I’m in. Even though I already have a pair of the Ottowas — the honey shell is that nice. It’s rich, it’s beautiful — it glows, literally.

I think I heard that at one point, GS did a plain toe shoe in honey shell as well. Hope they do it again.

Incidentally, is there going to be a pre-order of the natural chromeexcel longwing? Dunno if it’s still on but if so — take my money!

The PTB was the same Cognac Shell as the boots I posted earlier, not Honey.
