Crosspost from the C&J thread.

C&J Molton bought from Bodiley's. My 5th pair from Bodiley's, always impeccable service.

In my shoe wardrobe, compared with some venerable round toe models, the Molton shows an unusal square toebox. This boot in other leather would be a tad edgy but the rough out suede keeps things in balance and the protuding welt gives lots of character.

The 336 behaves (for my feet) similar to the 325 (Pembroke and Coniston). They arrived to my office to avoid spousal custom and wore them all day, no break in needed, very comfortable. This chukkas will see lots of action.

Am I correct in remembering you have the Loake Sprint sneakers?

I wear UK 11 in both and would say the fit is fairly similar.

I also believe you have a Grafton cordovan like my own pair. I have 100G in those so UK 10 G. I think a 10.5 would be better possibly but I get away with it as the G width is roomier.

I’m interested to hear your review. I am keen on the Dukeflex but couldn’t find it in the dark chestnut and I already have the whiskey Cityflex, dark khaki Bitflex and stone Greenflex from Astorflex so I don’t want repeat colors.

Also, it looks like the dark chestnut would mirror the Crosby by Drake as worn by Daniel Craig in the latest James Bond flick.
