    I use regular woodlore ones but i was thinking of upgrading to Epics soon.

    Also, Gianni's in a 10.5 (or I can exchange for a size on the RL site) for sale. Selling for a little under their recent sale price. PM me if interested.

    I've been looking for a #8 shell balmoral boot. I'm a big an of the EG Epsom, so maybe something with a contrast shaft. Kent Wang has a burg Balmorl boot[​IMG]

    Let me know if any of those Conistons from the Barney's sale don't work out for you. 8.5 or 9 US size.

    If you haven't already, use style number online and call a store, there should still be stock in stores

    Good idea. Geez, I know better than this. So.. I'm a US 9 or say 8.5D Alden Barrie... the consensus is to size down 1/2 to 7.5UK/8.5US ?

    General consensus is 1 full size down from your US tts to get the UK size. So you'd want 8E UK in the Coniston. I.e., go tts for the Coniston.

    Very glad to hear this 7fold and Boots! Thanks for the response.. 341 is slightly longer than 325 so I think that helps with the narrower last. I also think all three of us have narrow heels. Low volume feet are mine .. So I am told. You guys have a good Holiday BTW!

    Got the Conistons from Barneys sale today. They are smooth leather (not scotch grain) and darkerish brown not tan. Figured they would be a little different after I actually read the description post order. Oh Well. Will be returning. Was a nice price to take a shot at.

    My Barneys Conistons arrive tomorrow. I'm hoping they're keepers. If they look like they're on the 341 last, then I may have a hard time keeping them as although they're calf, they'll look too much like my Harlechs. If they're on the 325, then the bulkier, beefier toe box might justify me keeping them. And this is especially if the dark brown is close to the color of their dark brown shell.

    I agree..... I think scotch grain looks better on this boot...

    No picture can justify the smooth lines and color of a Coniston irl. Save up and buy a pair. Don't look back.
