    It's all good, so long as the leather quality is high. You can manipulate it however you wish, once received and worn.

    Nice monks thanks for posting. Good to know any shoe ordered now will indeed be very dark. Makes it easier on those of us who were thinking of taking a chance on future doak orders.

    I don't know if that's true. Maybe a little bit but unless you do something drastic. Dark shoes will stay dark while light can easily be made darker.

    ^ does anyone know if any of the other colors are changing similarly. Someone previously something to the effect of "burnt pine is the new doak" but probably in jest. Could that actually be the case?

    I'd also like to know what now most closely approximates the old Doak.

    To me burnt nine has far more orange in it. Older dark oak was a pretty true brown tone

    Galways are in dark oak and chukka is also in a dark oak. Both of these were obtained at the same time. In my opinion DOAK always varied in color.

    I've been emailing back & forth with Gabriel & thought I'd check here as well. I'm looking for some sizing advice. I'm going to order a blucher & a balmoral, both on the EB 946 last.

    My feet are slightly wide in the forefeet & my arch is a bit lower then normal.

    In Alden I wear a 9.5D Barrie and a 9.5E Aberdeen in shoes (although for some reason my 9.5D Alden shells fit a bit tighter than my 9.5D CXLs), I wear a 10D in a suede Barrie Boot which fits a bit "comfortably loose". My RL Marlow is 10D (a bit snug in the forefoot). My CJ Islays are 9E (for some reason snug in the vamp area when worn with thick socks). I have a pair of MTO AE Eagle Countys which are 10E/10.5E (AE's 222 last), my left foot is slightly longer than my right.

    Sorry for the lengthy post, I want to make sure I get the fit right!

    We're looking at a lighter contrast. It will be a contrast, but there are 4-5 different colors, I'm opting for one were a contrast will be evident but not dominant.

    888 if I recall correctly. We just said in the store that JS is gonna say these are dark when he gets them. :) They look marvellous though. The balance is awesome, hard to believe it's a G width.
