The End has some chestnut captoes on steep discount right now. Couldn't not get a pair.
Damn, I wish I hadn't seen that... so tempted... tho I have three pairs of Tricker's I already don't wear that frequently!
OK, stupid question time. How much bigger would a size 8 stow feel compared to a size 7?
My usual boots are size 7 and they feel pretty good on me. Toes arent hitting the ends and they lace up nice and snug. The only problem is that they feel really tight at the back of the heels while walking up slopes. Would I be swimming in a size 8?
It is mainly just a bit of length extra, or is the whole volume much bigger? Would a size 8 solve this tight heel situation?
Are you sure they're just not broken in?
Regardless, an 8 is probably going to be way too big. The obvious suggestion is to try a 7.5.
Pretty sure they are broken in. Must have worn them about 50 times.
I would have gone for a 7.5 but I want those new END burnished captoes but they don't have half sizes
End used to be really irritating and not carry many half sizes. Then they seemed to get better and carry more half sizes. Seems like they've gone back to their bad ways.
Those burnished captoes do look nice but I wouldn't risk the 8 if I were you.
Wish END would also say which last the shoes were made on.
Am I right to assume the cap toe boots and logger boot are made on 4497s last?
Francis brogue is made on 4444 last?
Kendal derby is made on 4497s last?
Massive. You'll have heel slip and eventually creasing in all the wrong places on the vamp, possibly even slightly diagonal creases, if the boot doesn't bend naturally with your foot.
Francis could be on the 13187 last
I did do a search but came up empty, how does the 13187 compare to the 4444? I am a 8.5 on the 4444.
Still waiting for END to confirm all the lasts for the shoes on sale.
Yes, I bet these are the ones made for END. You can see the black insoles and gold writing.
The 13187 is similar to the 4497.
I take the same size in both.
Absolutely gutted. I have been searching for brown Captoe boots literally every day for a few months and these look perfect for me. I just suspect that my size 7 boots are leading to heel problems like the onset of Haglunds Deformity which is a painful lump on the back of the heel.
