    I believe those are Chambord IIs in dark brown suede which are currently available at the Lobb store for $678!!

    Well, minus the one in front of me. :)

    I'm curious to hear people's opinions about JL's SAR soles. They really look hard-wearing but they just seem too rugged for the Chambord II boot...

    Anyone with SAR soles out there that can provide feedback?

    Lovely - and a screaming deal. And the burgundy pair on the right?

    Woodcote. It's more red than burgundy though. They are lighter than my AS Moores in cherry. When I get the chance I'll take a comparison pic of my "red" shoes.

    Damn, JL hasn't responded to my email.

    Anyone have better luck calling or emailing?

    Anyone looking for 10EUK in Dark Brown or Chestnut, in Chambord? I have both on hold, but not sure if I'm going to get them or may get and list on fleabay for a few pennies extra. I am in NY and get the pleasant taxes

    Of course... :satisfied:

    Yeah, my Lazenby shoes had a little more bruising thanks to the taxes.

    Twinsies!

    With NYC, it might be best to call.

    Are these chambord boots or shoes? What soles do they have? How does last 8695 fit in respect to last 7000?
    Many thanks in advance?

    Thanks man. Do you have experience with 8000 last? How does it fit in comparison to 7000?
