The changes for the worse seem to be continuing. Last season I bought the wyatt Chelsea boots in black leather from the website and think they're great. The ankle shaft is really slim and the slimness continues through the mid-foot which is great for me as I have thin feet, and it also makes them look sleeker and more elongated. When I saw that the website have replenished them last week I decided to grab a second pair for back up (exact same style ID). Anyway they arrived today and unfortunately the ankle shaft is now bigger, they don't feel as slim in the heel and the mid-foot is considerably bigger (I would guess the equivalent of going up a whole size in the mid-foot). It's very disappointing. I measured around the top of the ankle and last season's ones are 26.5 cm whereas the new ones have gone up to 28 cm leaving a big space in the front of my ankle which sticks into my jeans a little. I know I have high standards, and these boots are still pretty nice, but no longer special enough for me to bother buying. I'd sooner pick up two versions of the 4.5 cm heel French when they arrive, which considering they're new for this season, are probably going to be closer to the form that Hedi designed them to be. It's almost getting to a stage where if you don't get the first version of a given item, you can expect it to be dumbed down and made bigger by the time it gets re-issued (so many things have gone this way). I really don't understand why they would change something that so obviously has been highly successful. It's strange - the first two seasons were incredible and didn't sell all that well, things have kind of gone downhill in some areas since, and yet sales continue to grow. Anyway my question is, will they all be the same this season? Or is there a chance that they will vary depending on when they're produced? LVR have them for pre-order, so I was thinking there was a chance they might be different considering they have probably been made a little later. Seems like a long shot I know.
