    Sounds to me like you need orthopedic shoes... probably need to see a doctor as opposed to a styleforum board.

    Gotta remember Cowboy boots are long pegged at the waist long before SC was founded... And I suspect DWFII has been making boots longer than SC as well abide much smaller quantity.

    Ah! I see...you think the world revolves around you and that you can make disparaging remarks anytime and for no obvious, much less good, reason.

    I suspect you're just another ignorant, know-nothing pretending to experience and knowledge you don't have.

    No worries, you're not alone--there's a clubhouse around here somewhere.

    [sigh] Why is it always the newbies?

    Thanks...

    Nothing I said here was aimed at or even related to StC. Only someone looking for an issue would/could see it otherwise.

    I don't know about StC but I have a pretty high regard for them...all other things being equal. But if what you say is true and I've been making boots longer than they've been making shoes, I've been making shoes longer too. I made my first pair (nothing I'm any too proud of) over 50 years ago.

    You're just another troll...you don't have a point. You couldn't muster one. I wasn't saying anything about St.C and yet you felt compelled to pick a fight.

    What exactly do you know about StC?

    What do you know about feet? Or fitting problem feet? Or even fitting feet in general?

    What do you know about shoes? Or shoemaking?

    If the answer to any of those questions is informed by real experiences...anything outside of your imagination and/or the arrogance to pontificate about things you don't know anything about...by all means, let us know.

    And now to something completely different.

    Probably not to everyone's taste but I saw a similar shoe in Japan and felt a strong need. Very pleased with the result. Pretty versatile too, imo. The colour is a perfect chestnut.

    ^^^ What an absolutely gorgeous shade -congrats! Not sure how this radical concept of posting St. Crispin's content in a St. Crispin's thread will play out though. ;-)
