    What was it like working at C&J? Did they give you free shoes? Meet any famous customers?

    papado, jet-stream, and Churchill W thank you all for your input. Much appreciated.

    Based on a tracing C&J thought I might be almost 9UK in length, but suggested trying 8.5 and 8, based on width.

    I put on my Clark Street's to write this and need to update that the heel is as roomy as the instep (almost loose with no socks, snug with a new pair of mid-weight wool corgi's that might be a companion for the boots on colder days), and the tightest part on me is towards the front of my toes. So, I am considering jet-stream's input about the 108 heel being a bit larger than the 348.

    I think the convergence of this is that 8.5E UK is the first choice to try, but not to be surprised if I'd be better with the 8UK E.

    allred, are these a custom colour? They appear quite a bit lighter than the Darkbrown Wax Calf shown on the website.

    Still work there and still enjoy it :)
    You get a pair of free shoes once you pass probation after 3 months.
    Quite a few famous customers actually but I won't name them...
