    Yeah, I was hesitant to grab them in cigar because they looked much lighter. But, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw them in person. They're the exact shade of dark brown that I was looking for.

    Crossposting and sort of repeating this from the suede thread...mainly because I'm longing for summer and remember the satisfaction when I finally broke these in. Herring's CS is the best experience I've ever had in regards to shoes.

    They put up with exchanging 3 pairs for me to find the right fit. I then had to get them stretched out no less than 3 times, but finally they fit comfortably. No snugness, no flopping out of the shoe when I walk in them.

    Ascot II, which I think are rebranded Loakes.

    Also, their system makes for pain-free duty payment right on their website. They made it easy for Canadians to figure out their european shoe sizing. When I exchanged each pair, I had no issues with double duty charges. I only had to pay it the first time.

    ^ Very nice. I've never worn it myself but you're not the first person I've come across that's found Loake's loafer last a little tricky.

    Thanks.

    They recommended that last to me because I told them I have low volume feet.

    I was convinced I couldn't make loafers work without going for super expensive Aldens, but I'm glad it all worked out.

    Will update with pictures later, but two pairs of boots ordered and delivered to the USA without any issue, great notification system and was super pleased with the boots and the accessories that were included complimentary.

    The international ordering always made me hesitate, but it went so smoothly I've got no issues making future purchases.

    Use the code AAST for free shoe trees or AA10 for 10% off. Those codes are from AskAndyAboutClothes.
