    I will post some pics tomorrow of a pair I have on the classic last that I have worn for six months or so. I can say that in my situation the creasing that occurs across the front when worn the first few times does not get worse over time. The shoe look pretty much the same as when I wore them the first few times (i.e. the leather is aging well).

    When I read the posts, I notice a lot of familiar contributors. Could some one give me a short crash course on StC? I currently have experience with Alden and EG. In contrast to EG which I believe is a better comparison, how does the sizing compare are the lasts generally sleeker than eg? From the photos I'vr seen the construction seems spot on. Are the considered to be more on par with eg,s top drawer offerings?

    I'm sitting at a traffic light so I'll make it brief. STC is compareable to EG TD in terms of quality and finishing - both are top notch. Both cost about the same but STC is hand welted. Generally, size up 1/2 for EG, whereas size up 1 for STC. I.e EG uk11.5e=us12d, STC uk11f=us12d

    Snowboots now broken in. Uppers are basically waterproof. Wish the soles were waterproof too.

    yes, based on the creasing alone, i find it difficult to distinguish a week old shoe from a 6 month old shoe. creases fast and then doesnt crease at all. good and bad i guess


    thanks! looking forward to them.

    I know the picture on the website is, however I spoke with them yesterday and you can get them in Dainite if you wish. They said I could, they are MTO.


    I just wondered if it would change the look of the boot much if I ordered them with Dainite. I wouldn't think it would, but just checking.
