I'm thinking about buying my first pair of Chelsea boots. After having done a bit of looking around, I've become quite enamored of the Crockett & Jones Chelsea, on the 238 last. (1) My foot sizing presents some challenges. My right foot is a 9.5D and my left is an 8E (US sizing)--essentially the same width but a fair bit less in length. With oxfords and chukkas, I've been able to compensate by lacing the left shoe a little tighter. But a chelsea boot, lace-less that it is, doesn't have this advantage. So I'm hoping those familiar with the C&J might provide a best guess as to how my feet would do. (2) For those who are familiar with the 238 last, what can you tell me? It looks quite nice, but I haven't been able to see it in person. (3) Any other thoughts on other Chelsea boots I should consider? I particularly like the elegant shape of the C&J, but would be willing to entertain other possibilities. My limit's around $400. Thanks in advance for your help.
