Very nice chelsea boots, I´d like to ask you something, Are you comfortable with your boots? there is something strange that surprises me, I observe in the photograph of the table that the boots have no outlet ...I really like the last is very modern.

Sorry, what do you mean by no outlet? It is a little hard to wear the first time but I expect it to get easier over time. It feels comfortable on the first wear so far.

The maker mentioned he added a little excess space over the instep due to the nature of the boots but otherwise I think the fit is fine.

What do you mean by no outlet? I am curious if I missed something.

Yes, the toe of the boot is very close to the ground, there is no distance, it is apparently as if the boot had the heel higher than the last admits, at least it is appreciated in the table photograph.

It is a beautiful shoe too but look carefully at this picture, it belongs to the thread of "the shell cordovan, no-Alden ....... here the distance is excessive, for me, only for me the shoe loses elegance.
The lasts where the shoes are made always mark the height of the heel and the distance of the toe with respect to the ground.

Oh, that is the toe spring yes? I posted a pic in the Bespoke thread on it as well where I asked about toe spring earlier.

I realized now that there is almost no toe spring with the shoe trees in. However, there is some toe spring when it is removed. I dunno if it was caused by the first wear or it was always there but I did not take any pictures of the boot without the shoe trees inserted except a few pages earlier here where it seems there is some amount of toe spring now that I stare at the picture.

What do you think?

Yes, is the toe spring I´m sorry my english,
I have looked at the previous photographs and I have not seen much difference.

Many times the boots are uncomfortable when you have many hours put on your feet, at first you do not notice but when you walk a long time the foot is forced forward, overloading your muscles and you can feel more tired than usual, then you start to be uncomfortable, but it is only an appreciation, if you are comfortable you do not have to care.
