    My only shoe purchase 2006 was a pair of C&J Chelsea 5 with Dainite soles in Chestnut through Pediwear. I ordered them in December as Winter shoe, but it took them until end of February/begin of March for delivery. They are really beautiful boots, and (un)fortunately Winter decided to stay a bit longer this year (it's Mid-March and we have -4°C and about 1m of snow, when it normally should have disappeared 2-3 weeks ago...), so I even can put them to good use. [​IMG] Normally I would now think about shoes for the summer, but looking outside of the window into the white landscape doesn't put me into the mood for it [​IMG]

    Do the Bexley shoe tree fill in the shoes in the width at 100% ?

    Personally, I love them and think at US$21/pair, the value is fantastic. I currently own 24 pair of these.

    As for completely filling the shoe, the answer is yes. They are split and hinged.

    Every time you post one of these, I hate you more and more.

    After seeing the 2003 Special and Newbury, I had to run to the defibrillator. Absolutely phenomenal.


    Thanks M. The burnishing on the burgundy Newbury is spectacular and I wish it came across better in the photos. Green really nailed both of my special ordres.

    I can't compete with aportney's wonderful recent acquisitions but here is my modest purchase of the month.

    EG chelseas's on the 202 last. They are my first EG's [​IMG]

    Fantastic purchases, aportnoy. I love grained calf, and that museum gold is gorgeous. But I must say that it's the olive that speaking to me right now. You might want to keep it under lock and key....[​IMG]

    I'm really impressed with the Edward Green "Newbury" in the mink suede. I think that may be the nicest looking wholecut I've seen. [​IMG] I do feel sorry for the poor minks that gave their lives for it, though...

    Mental note: get wholecut in suede.

    Thanks AC, I hope PETA doesn't find out. I'd hate to get "pied."[​IMG]

    Thanks Teach. Susie Jones referred to it as the "FrankenCardiff" at the trunk show when I was describing it to her. Remarkably, they've rendered it perfectly.[​IMG]

    Those are dark oak on the 202 last. I think would look good on the 82 last as well. A medallion or a plain wing-cap would be nice additions too.

    That reminds me: is it just me or are the boots in your avatar (which I think were in dark oak as well) now much lighter in colour than when you first got them?

    The balmoral boot is probably my favorite boot design. I hope to get more.

    Those are next on my list, but where I live it never gets cold. Do you think they are too heavy for summery weather with jeans and such?
