    Looks like they could benefit (couldn't we all, really?) from a little time with the voodoo bone.

    Thanks Interlocking, I doesn't bother me too much, the only think I'm concerned about is will this be the start of a bigger problem? For instance, will the sliced leather start peeling off or away? Will the slice open up further? And the slice is close to the shoe lace eyelet, will the hole tear?

    Hey guys. Jcrew screwed up an order from months ago and i sending me a pair of jcrew captoe cordovan boots in 8.5. Anyways, I don't need them and will be returning them.
    If anyone wants them, I can do 600 shipped plus paypal fees. I'll inspect them and make sure there aren't any defects before I do the deal.

    You seem to have excessive wear on the tip of your toes as compared to the rest of the sole. I would consider toe taps following refurbishing.

    Fit question: I was measured as a 9.5D on the Brannock and these are a 9D. They feel really good right now, fit-wise. I can feel the slightest bit of pressure at the widest part of my foot, but nothing uncomfortable. My question is, with this leather, will stretching occur to the extent that the the uppers will eventually be close to touching each other at the laces? This, I would perceive as undesirable.

    I'm a little afraid right now that they fit and I'm gonna have to keep them...

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    Kwaker - these boots have only been worn about a dozen times but yeah, the toe is worn away. I think it's a combination of my stride and the fact that I walk about a mile to and from work every day. Every pair in my closet has the same problem, even my old 974s which have steel toe taps.
