    ^^^ What he said. My preference is for CRU, but choice is good.

    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.

    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 :)

    Anyone ever send St.C to Nick at B. Nelson for resole?

    How much do they charge for re-sole/re-lasting?

    Thanks

    SC resole is $250. Re-lasting (not necessary unless you want to change sizes) is another $250.
