    When they need new soles etc do Purdey offer a repair service like C&J do?

    I'm sure C&J would do it themselves. or any good cobbler. I'm in the US so I doubt I would ship them back anyways...

    I seem to recall reading that C&J will recraft shoes they make for other retailers.

    Are the calf Purdey definitely the Coniston? Toe looks a little more narrow?

    I tired on the grain Coniston the other day and they were great

    I couldn't resist and have ordered the Purdey Calf Leather Boot. Luckily I ordered when I did as they're now sold out in my size.

    Does anyone know if Purdey send out shoe bags etc as part of the package?

    I am a size 11 U.S. with a standard width foot. I bought the size 9.5 Islay and they fit perfectly.

    Are you not supposed to just take one size off?

    I am u size US 10, but all my CJ shoes are in UK9. Do you suggests Purdey Islay fits large?

    Crap! You guys are killing me. I ordered the Islay last week and now the Coniston. How am i supposed to hide this from the wife?

    Both from the Purdey sale.

    By the way, anyone know if there are any differences between the standard C&J and the made for purdey C&J? The Islays look exactly the same.

    That is how it worked out for me. I am on the large size of 11 in U.S. sizing and my 9.5 UK purlays fit exactly right.

    I also ordered the Coniston in 9.5.

    Nice to finally know my size.

    Hey,

    In looking closely, the calf boots on purdey are not scotch grain. Are they for sure the Coniston? I am hoping so.

    You are correct, they are not scotch grain. But I am fairly confident these are C&J. I have owned C&J Conistons and the fact that the Islays are C&J are enough for me.

    Looks like a pointier last or am I mistaken? Could be the angle? too bad there is only one picture.

    Could you please advise on the fit? Have you went only 1 size down from your normal US size, or 1,5?

    I went down 1 from US. Toe is sort of generous but the rest of it is pretty TTS.

    A little research on 325 lasted boots shows some people go down just the 1 size (i.e. 8 UK = 9 US) while others will drop down an extra .5 size to compensate for the more voluminous last and the fact that some boots tend to run a little larger (7.5 UK = 9 US). You might just need to flip a coin.

    I tried on both the Coniston and the Islay in the Jermyn street store a few months ago. The coniston on the 325 last is sleeker than the 365 Islay last but fits me really well at 1.5 sizes down from my U.S. 11.

    I am 9.5 UK in both lasts.
