    i got a call from george to thank me for my order, ended up chatting with him on the phone for 10 minutes. the brown vibram sole'd ones will be coming out soon. vibram is super backordered on the sole, so that's what's holding this up. i'm really stoked to start breaking these in.
    can you post detail pictures when they arrive?

    thanks for sharing. super cool of you.

    so you mentioned you thought they run a half size large, is that accurate?

    not to be a bigger pain in the ass, but if you get some time can you take some photo's of the inside of the shoe. i am curious if they use the same technique yuketen and quoddy uses.

    great shoes man!

    If they're made in Maine, then they no doubt come from the same factory that several other brands use... so the quality and fit is going to be about the same across the board. Just pick whatever flavor works best with your style.

    come on geniuses figure it out

    hey lawlercon! so i am about to order a pair of the trail oxfords and was curious if you still think you could have sized down a half size. i am trying to get this order right the first time and what not.

    i spoke with the designer and creator, george, for about 20 minutes the other day and this guy is super cool. this is a line we will all be talking about in the future, i promise ya.

    whatever,

    i think i could of went with a 10, but the 10.5's have broken in really nicely. either way, they will stretch a bit if they're a little small, but if it's too tight you risk damaging the stitching and sort of "squeezing" the leather. i would go with the size you feel confident with, i wouldnt try to size down because i don't like the idea of letting the horween leather stretch out. like i said before, i wear 10.5 redwing boots, and i went with a 10.5 oak streets and they were lovely right out of the box.

    they get more comfortable everyday.

    here are some more photos i snapped today:

    hey man! thanks for the photos and sizing advice. i did order that exact pair but with the camp sole. and i know exactly what your talking about regarding "squeezing" the leather. my yuketen angler mocs i purchased a while back were about .025 to small and that exact thing happened. so i order the size the owner recommended for me...i ordered my dress shoe size.

    the owner is a total stud too! i ended up speaking to him for about 20 minutes. he has an amazing vision, style, and business model. he is going to do great...

    i am totally drooling at those photos. but ill have mine in a month or two. i am going to order a pair of his loafers too at some point. thanks again for sharing.
