If they can find out which store has it in stock, you could call them and have a sales associate inspect the pair in your size. That way you'd know condition of the shoe before purchasing. It probably wouldn't bother me personally unless there are extensive signs of try-on.

I haven't seen Grosvenor in person but judging by similar model on Tassels' instagram account, my guess is C&J's stock pics don't do the boot justice. Tassels had Bagshot (Grosvenor for Asian market?) on sale earlier in June, unfortunately my size wasn't available.

The Grosvenor is beautiful. I tried in on in New York last year but ended up buying the Coniston instead.

Considering they are retiring it, and its on sale for about $400 less than USD list I think I will be getting it.

Radnor vs Snowdon if one has to pick one ? And why?
I own Islay, Skye 3 and Arran ( Barneys NY) oh and Eskdale arriving any day.
Thank you,
Some differences like Snowdon is Veldt construction and Radnor is not. Snowdon has Commando sole and Radnor has the Ridgeway sole but both boots have the same last. The thing going for Radnor is the Bakers Russian grain leather which is very nice. But if I had to just pick for bad weather I would pick Snowdon Zug or Regular Snowdon.
Radnor 4 price is very nice too now especially if you buy from UK on sale price approx £491.67 ex VAT plus £30 shipping. Otherwise it runs approx $1k in NY store.

Did you consider bodileys?

They are quite slick with a dainite sole. These are actually made by Cheaney.
Wow great recommendation. I actually was looking for one a bit more rounded and “masculine” (I have a saint laurent pair and don’t want the sleek high heel look) and for that reason I was looking at the Chelsea 5, but this seems to fit the bill well. My other option was splurging on the viberg but not sure that’s worth it for this shoe.

In addition to those great details provided by @saurabh, I must add that the Snowdon has bellow tongues while the Radnor does not.

I did ask, and haven't seen a response yet. I assumed the worst would maybe be minor try on creasing. They didn't even know my size on initial inquiry so might avoid the issue altogether.

Was just wondering if anyone had done a similar thing w/ them.
I’ve picked up a pair that were in store try on and they were in excellent shape when I got them.

Contrary to popular belief, if I had to pick one, it’s not close, the Radnor. At these prices, if they have it in your size get it now, do not pass go, immediately purchase them. You may not get this opportunity again. The Snowdon is always available, the Radnor in russian grain..not so much!

Another Russian Leather Radnor buyer here. I thought they had been discontinued and no longer available, I couldn’t resist given that they are on sale too. I have been on the look out for a Russian leather boot for awhile now, I am looking forward to opening the box and getting that first smell.

It’s one of the most enjoyable experiences of owning these particular boots, that only a shoe lover can understand.

Congrats. Yep they've been discontinued, which is precisely why they're on sale. I'd inquired about availability back in March, but decided to wait and take a chance they'd still be available in my size during C&J Summer sale

"Our sale is comprised of a large variety of shoes and boots, which are made up of current styles that we are now discontinuing as well as samples, cancelled orders and Hand Grade seconds."
