It's not that often nowadays that I get blown away by a shoe, but these did it to me. Seriously awesome! Do stock this model Leaves, as you notice by the comments above, won't be any problems to sell them..

Like I said before, I'm in. I'll send an email to confirm.
What is the difference (if any) in fit as between Oscar and Robert or Forest. I'm a safe UK 9 in both of those,
I do find my Chelsea boots to be a bit more spacious than my balmorals, both on Simpson. I would not be able to size down however.
These lasts are all normal fitting last with some small difference in fit as well as the room provided in the toe box. Oscar has the widest to box and is quite generous compared to Robert which has a more almond shaped toe box. Forest is in between these two regarding the room in the toe box. Over the instep, I would say that Oscar and Forest are very similar and I do not feel any particular or noticeable difference between them, some of our customer feel that the instep of Robert is slightly higher than Oscar and Forest but the difference is so small that other people can't feel that difference at all. It is mostly dependent on the profile of your feet and the fit and style you are seeking for.
To summarize; these lasts fit very similar so if you are for example a UK 9 in Robert and Forest, I would absolutely go for the same size in Oscar as well.
Excellent info Gabriel, thank you.
any wide offering on the Oscar?
I think wide is only done for Rain and Forest
I thought as much
Wow, the Frankenstitch is an awesome looking boot. I think as soon as I confirm my size in the Rain last (shoes inbound), and the govt gives me back the excess money they took last year, I've got to get in on this. Plus, at a similar price I would probably have them before JCrew could deliver the Alden captoe boots.
Would you consider this a "classy casual" type boot? I could see wearing it mostly with chinos/trousers.
If I didn't just buy a pair of boots from your guys couple of days ago, I would be in. These boots look stunning.
Hello New to this forum.
I wanted to post some pictures of my new purchases from skoaktiebolaget. Here they are
They are black wingtips on Robert last.
Very comfortable, They have York rubber soles.
I have worn them a couple of times and find them much more comfortable than my carmina's with leather soles.
Welcome to the forum, nikosk, and congratulations on your purchase!
Here is the other one which I absolutely love. Very nice combination of calf and grey leather.
sorry for the quality of the images but they were taken with an iphone.
Very comfortable also and they are on Robert last and dainite rubber soles.
A truly eye catcher.
