    Thank you for the information. That’s quite a bargain at that price.

    You didn’t find anything you were interested in?

    @Nat Jag Cheers, that was kind of you (me that asked for UK6 Bradfords).

    Perhaps i am lucky to find a seller within EU that can get the UK6 Bradfords at a decent price. Just sent Pediwear an email.

    So envious. To say they look quite good is an understatement. Although i might be afraid that Cordovan is too shiny for me, i reckon those Dark brown in calf is what i am after.

    Real bargain for that price! Was that the full stock or where there more shoes beside the one in the pictures?
    Apologies for the silly question but I have never been there, maybe it is time. .

    Those pictures just show the stock for the sizes 7-8. There were more similar displays for larger sizes. I didn’t take those pictures.

    Went back to Green Park / Mayfair area yesterday morning prior to flying home later in day. Stopped in to the Burlington Arcade store, the smaller one you mentioned.

    It was great. First stopped in, saw some stuff I liked including one boot last of its kind, in my size. But then left to stop at Selfridges, which actually had one shoe in my size on clearance. A reddish brown Yeovil, I think made for them model from a few years ago. It was 200 gbp and fit perfectly.

    But I had the boot from the CJ store in the Arcade on my mind so went back. It fit great, and next thing you know I bought the priciest shoe I've ever paid for. Skye II in Dark Brown Shell Cordovan.

    Had them ship it which worked out to be about the same price. Can't wait to get it, I fell in love with it in first wear. My size, their last in the store for that discontinued model. It was on sale, all in all paid about $700, no complaints.

    Will post some pics when I get them. Didn't go back to buy the Yeovil, in my head I put the money from that into this. But that was the first time trying on CJ shoes, only own boots, and they were great. Maybe I'll call them today haha to see if they'll ship.

    Glad you found something you liked. The Skye II in brown shell is my favorite boot. Congratulations on a very nice find and a great price.

    Hi all, I have a query regarding C&J sizing. I picked up a Coniston boot in 6.5 recently, fit well in store when I tried on with normal dress socks. Unfortunately, when I tried them at home with slightly thicker winter socks (Uniqlo Heattech ones, they're not even that thick..), the toes had barely any room and my right pinky toe got pinched - it wasnt painful but uncomfortable.

    For comparison I have the Tetbury (348 last) in size 7 that needs an insole + tongue pad, and used to have the Skye 3 (335 last) in size 7 which had a lot of heel slip on one foot I ended up selling it. I also have the Camberley (348 last) in 6.5 which I can only wear with thin socks.

    My feet measurements in store were inbetween 6.5 and 7, normal width.

    What do people recommend in such situations? Size up to accomodate the bigger foot and compromise with insoles? Or expect the leather to stretch on the smaller size (or is this a myth)??

    If it helps I also have the Loake Chester in 6.5 which is very comfortable, the AS Cambridge and Cheaney Tweed C both in 7 which fits very well.
