I've slowly been converting my collection from leather soles to all rubber sole for comfort and practicality. Been eying the C&J Pembroke or Swansea with rubber soles for my next purchase. Would also love to order the JL Redmire or Chapel with rubber soles, just not sure if they are available that way in RTW.

In principle, I would never buy shoes from Ascot.

Certainly, being outside the EU, one of the reasons that has kept me away from buying on ebay is the inability of many (re)sellers to offer VAT refunds.

HarleyBob...I would grab the shoe as the price is decent for a factory second

The grained texture looks nice...and even richer in this brownish/burgundy blend.

If you do not already own a Dainite soled shoe, then try this on to give more depth to your casual shoe wardrobe...especially when it rains or snow

Bummer the shoe trees are not included

I actually bought these because they were the only ones I could find in an 11B and just luckily were reduced but I would have bought even at regular price.

they are not C width and peal is not "equal quality"

Please explain.

Call the JL store, if you are outside the EU, you will get a 20% deduction for VAT. Ascot's prices seem to be on the high side - closer to retail, so it may be easier to order a pair of brand new one from the store than seconds from him.

So much anger for such a tiny, old man

Whoah; that's a lotta giddyup for such a recent member. General consensus around these parts is UK E = US D. That concurs with my own experience, and I've been wearing shoes for over 50 years, pal.
