    Are your intitials CP? Don't think I'd care to have that on the bottom of my shoe.
    Boy, that wouldn't stop me if I were an 8.5. A little sandpaper; maybe a little black paint....

    how do the grants fit in comparison to say AE? Size up or down? What about width?

    If you haven't tried EGs before, the fit is much snugger overall. AE is a high-volume shoe, while EG is a low-volume shoe. Some folks like their EGs to fit very snuggly at first, so they'll stretch with wear. Definitely don't size down, but other than that, I'll leave it to others to say. I tend to be an outlier on these things.

    Wait, you smell that?
    Damn, who took the sz. 11 Harrington's? They were in my cart, then I tried to purchase them, then they were no longer available!?

    I ended up with Grants in sz. 11. I have Mackays in sz 11. I hear a lot about sizing up and down 1/2 size for the monks. Not sure how applicable it is, but I'm assuming I'm okay sticking with the same size?

    The Grant, IIRC, is on 888. The 89 last is wider -- bigger in general, I'd say.
    Is that right? Not on the more usual RLPL 89 last?

    I'm pretty sure, but I'm just going off the top of my head. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me.

    But here are my black Grants with the Wakely on 89:

    A big thank you to whoever bought the size 12 Grants. My credit cards are safe for another day.

    No 11.5s, I would have tried the 12[​IMG]

    This is reminiscent of two Aprils ago and Bennies....

    But just what shade of brown is that on the Grants - I'm guessing Chestnut.

    You got the Grants Gdl!? Good snag. I was in the process of checking out, and although the page showed I had one sz. 11 Harrington in my cart, it then told me, the quantity can't be zero.

    I've had the Grants for a while. Today, I got myself a new pair of Harringtons in size 11
