^^^ What he said. My preference is for CRU, but choice is good.
Can you enlighten the ignorant/lazy, what is CRU?
@laufer Quoted from previous page
My shoes arrived from Honolulu! Even nicer in real life.
F 1/2 I think means slightly wider width than F.
^^^ Never heard of that, but I must say I find the whole idea of half-size widths quite appealing.
Roger P's chukka and THESE are my all time favorites
Why thank you sir. And I agree - these dub monks are just terrific.
I agree, I have them in CRU but I don't have the best grasp of the difference. I've heard many explanations but in the end, I fall back on the fact that I like the pairs I have in CRU.
Since the very beginning, Saint Crispin's catalog widths have been specified as E1/2, F1/2, G1/2, H1/2 etc. On the shoes (soles, tongues & trees), these width letters are simply abbreviated as E, F, G, H etc.. There are no such thing as in-between-half widths. I.e. F1/2 = F when we speak StC. Confusing to the novice, for sure.
Correct sir! I hear it is due to the metric system? I saw Tricker's also do the same thing (using 0.5 or 1/2 in front of their widths)
I know we have some wild pairs on our webstore (http://www.mclassic101.com) but here are few somber MTOs we have done in the future
My favorite...505 doublemonk in Navy Shell Cordovan!
Anyone ever send St.C to Nick at B. Nelson for resole?
How much do they charge for re-sole/re-lasting?
SC resole is $250. Re-lasting (not necessary unless you want to change sizes) is another $250.
