    ive asked this before but never had a good answer.

    i wear a 11.5F in most shoe makes however there is usually some room in the width. would a 12E work in C&J? they make very few shoes with an F width...


    An 'F' fitting is used by most shoe makers as their standard/normal width fitting. C&J are anomalous in this respect and use 'E' to denote their standard/normal fit, an 'F' fitting C&J is actually their wider fitting shoe.

    In light of the above I would guess, generally speaking, if you're an 11.5F in most shoes, you'd also be an 11.5F in C&J; not a 12E. Now if you are an 11.5F in most of your shoes and they leave you some extra width you could consider getting a C&J 'D' fitting which is narrow. But you'll have to consider that some of the C&J lasts, such as 360 & 348/358 do run narrow, so it's not uncommon for folks to drop down a half or even a full size in particular narrow shoes.

    Hope that helps.

    nobody in their right mind (and nobody in this thread) said a CJ handgrade was superior to a standard EG or a JLP. Its fucking obvious that a $700 MSRP shoe is going to have a hard time beating a $1300 MSRP one. Why the fuck do you keep harping on this?

    talk about peasants, thefuccareyou sifting through outlets for sun-damaged display-model EGs for? Probably walking around in $200 mismatched-sized RLPL slippers staring in the mirror. fuccoutahere noob.

    At what point does one experience diminishing returns going from $700 to $1300 shoes?

    We seem to share the same taste in footwear.

    Nice shoe collections guys! I'm planning on ordering a couple of pairs of C&J's in the 348 last soon. For those of you with 348 C&J's; should I just go with the corresponding size indicated by the UK to US size conversion charts? [​IMG] I'm an 8 1/2 D US by the way. Pediwear or Plal?

    Edit:

    Let's start talking C&J - Alden's got a nice thread, C&J owners should too!


    +1. I've been very impressed by C&J. I think its the sweet spot between quality and price.

    wash ur mouth peasant. who is talking about Ebay??


    Until recently, we were getting C&J handgrades for about $430.That's when most of the shoes in this thread were bought. Nobody said they were on par with EGs and JLPs, just a very nice shoe at a better price point.

    Or from $300 to $700?
