    It's also missing the storm welt, though I don't mind the look of the flat welt.

    I love my Greenwich but like you, the lack of speed hooks is rough with the chamois leather, truly tough to get in and out of without undoing a bunch of lacing. The green chamois is amazing though and if I could sell my tobacco pair for a decent amount I would consider flipping to the green.

    I quite like the look of the flat welt, actually.

    I also like the flat welt. 8.5 sold out before the email dropped.

    I've been starting my very own ill fitting shoe purge, getting rid of everything that doesn't really fit me so much anymore (I used to think I was a 9.5E or 10D in TruBalance, but now Moulded Shoe has made it very clear to me that I am, emphatically, a 10.5E). So, I've also been buying things that fit me better.


    Four boots purchased so far with this in mind, three of them Aldens, which I've decided have the best fit for my foot of any brand: #8 Epaulet Brixton wingtip boot, coming sometime in the next 3-6 months. #8 J Gilbert Indy Boot, coming sometime in the next couple of weeks (hopefully!).

    And today, I decided to pull the trigger on a pair I've wanted for years, but was too much on hype trains to get, a pair of 405s. For some reason I'd been convinced that a pair of plain, waxed matte brown boots couldn't be worth buying. Finally have come full circle, and while I love #8, I realized that some of the patina I really want can only be achieved with plain, ordinary leather. Though I'm glad I came to this conclusion now, since I'll be getting them in my correct size, finally.
