    fungamer, just wait for the polish to dry, and no need to polish the shoes after just one wear.

    And.... um... how much product did you use? I can see that kind of result if you really gooped it on. I have never seen that happen from the whisper-thin type coat of polish you should be applying.

    I guess too much wax was applied on it, and might dried out the leather.

    It doesn't look dried out, it looks completely saturated

    Judging by all the wax caked in between the broguing and punched holes I'd say too much wax was applied.

    This is perfect. I was thinking to go with a UK7/US8, so that's what I'll go with. I also emailed Skoak and they agreed to go with a UK7.

    Hi guys, I am thinking of getting a pair of G&G boots in MH71 (or CG06) last, but am not quite sure which size to get.

    I usually fit in shoes with size UK9, US10 and EU43. Currently, I am wearing UK9 for Carmina Rain last and UK9 for Alfred Sargent Drake.

    I have read that in general for G&G I should get half a size down (in UK size) from the normal US size. Is it true? Does that mean I should get UK9.5? As it's a pair of boots, should I size up to UK10?

    Thanks in advance!

    I see U.K. 9.5 in your future.

    If you are a UK 9 in Carmina Rain a UK 9 MH 71 will be too narrow and a 9.5 probably a bit long. I suggest UK 9 in a wide (F) fitting. It's what I wear.

    ^^^ Should go without saying but do seek advice by email directly from Skoak.
