    Thanks, this is especially good advice for those of us who forgot to attend our last 1,000 yoga classes.

    Hello, yesterday arrived my first J Fitzpatrick pair of shoes (the Snoqualmie boots). I am impressed with the quality, craftmanship, material, attention to detail and design. The presentation is on top (better than several brands) and certainly the shoe bags are the best I have tried.

    I was hesitant to take the leap, you know buying in the web is sometimes tricky specially when you have never seen the shoes in flesh. The sizing is an issue when you don't know how their lasts suit your feet. I also felt that Justin's comments about Church's where a tad unfair, I own several Chruch's shoes (only Custom Grade) and found them fantastic, but I understand that he knows a lot about shoes.

    They where very helpful with the sizing, their service is great. I will come back for more Shoe Snob shoes. Highly recommended

    Do you have any idea how quickly the stock will go, Justin? Might Madison in dark brown (10) still be available late August?

    Not sure the sale will last that long as it is.

    Gents, these shoes are made from the famed Ilcea Museum calf in dark brown. I brought out the museum effect even more by using a healthy amount of the mink oil renovator. It does strip a little bit of color, but that was my intention to bring out the lighter tones.

    Ok, so it took longer than I wanted it to, but hopefully this is of use. If anyone wants additional side by sides just post and I'll set it up.

    I'm a 10.5D US with decently high instep, and my right foot is slightly wider than my left, bordering on E. I'd consider my best fit a 9.5UK in Carmina's Alcudia last - snug all around with a nice narrow heel, with Justin's TMG a close second, less snug all over but very comfortable as a result. Below are pictures of various brands lined up with two of Justin's shoes, I'll note the make, size, and last before each picture (format: Maker/Size/Last). I tried to take shots directly over the shoes for the best comparison but it was an imperfect science. People ask about insteps for makers too so I included shots of my right foot since it's bigger with each shoe laced up so the lace gap can be observed and compared. Maybe this will convince some of you to make the leap and take advantage of the sale going on! :slayer:

    Left to right we have:

    I can't say for sure but it's not likely to be honest, especially as there is only one pair left in that color/size

    Does anyone know how "soft" the Madison loafer is? By that I mean does it run closer to a Belgian or Italian loafer with a thin sole and Blake welting or is it more of the Bristh style with a heavier sole and Goodyear welting?

    @Adamjonzey I think that you might be able to explain this if you have the time?

    Agreed, great comparisons and should help some decide. Appears the instep is pretty generous across the range. LPB is a great last shape.
