    How's the fit on those compared to Marlow WT's?

    I find the Marlows to fit a little tight in the toebox.

    I have 10.5US in marlows and these are 9UK. Toe box feels slightly better here in terms of taper, my toes get pinched at end of day in marlows. Won't know till they break in though as these are on a thick sole

    Is this basically the Lindrick, or different last?

    Not sure what last the Lindrick is on, but the Skye 2 is on the 335 last. They are pretty similar, the main difference I see are dainite (Skye) vs leather (Lindrick) soles, blind (Skye) vs agatine (Lindrick) eyelets, and different broguing on the shaft.

    These are tts. Fit is almost perfect. Better than 1/2 down like my previous pair

    Doesn't he ditch all after ten wears or so? This is buying addiction in effect.

    I guess you didn't read those English language words or chose to ignore them to finagle your opinion. Previous pair was 11.5, this pair (better fitting) is 12. But yes, I have many, many pairs. Hugs and kisses from not where you are

    Edit-I do have a shoe buying problem just recently purchased a load of GG for RL. Would you be a pal and buy a pair? I'm losing $600 on each pair but I like your contributions to this forum. You're the best <3

    A little late and fully quoted for awesomeness. Is the 325 last the same as the shortwing blucher?
