Is there a place in a Paris where I can try on CLinch or John Lofgren? Especially interested in John Lofgren Donkey Punchers.

Any Jodphurs out here? I've been thinking about them for a while and need some pushes to pull the trigger

I had to get a pair of engineers after the m-43 became my go to boot. The m-43 is easily the most comfortable I've had and the engineers are the first to have minimal heel slip with my feet. They're a bit snug in the toe area which I hope alleviates once they break in a bit 20240411_111855.jpg

Not Japanese, but I picked up a pair from Briselblack a few years back that I'm very happy with

These might actually be your size too

Would love to see some action shots and hear your impressions if you have some free time and anything handy. Briselblack was actually my (likely) frontrunner MFR

took the plunge on buying a pair of RDT Coupens in CXL about 10 days ago. I'm a brannock 9.5D~ with my left foot being a tiny bit wider and bigger than my right. Followed S&S guidance on sizing and went with an 8.5. The shoes fit well when I first got it but there was slight tightness on the sides / balls of my feet. It definitely did hurt a little wearing it too early on too much. Some light shoe tree stretching and light wearing and the discomfort was gone within a few days. This is only about week 1 of break in time and I'd say there's no tightness and pain anymore.

There's just perfect amount of space on the top of my toes, if you were to go even 0.5 down it might be a bit too big. Hope your feet aren't too wide for the last. These shoes are fantastic and super comfortable if your foot size is the right fit.
I have my eyes set on the Rolling Dub Trio Coupens. How should I go about selecting the correct size? My feet are 26-26.5 cms sitting/standing and fairly wide.

with RDT Coupon, 0.5 down bannock was not enough. Full size down would work better for my feet

If you have wide feet I would probably avoid this shoe and the ones with same lasts to be honest, unfortunately..
