In for color 2s as well, hope these are true to their normal size and not this weird extended sizing some retailers have reported.

Just me or does that color 2 look an awful lot like color 4?
Less red than older batches of Color 2 I've seen (photos only, don't have any), but pulled the trigger anyway. I have Color 4s already but I told myself these are different enough to keep both because Ridgeway. Will see how the shades compare IRL and may cut one.

I am pretty much maxed on service boots, would like to see some of these cool colors in a derby shoe or oxford. I need more variety and the slippers, chelseas, etc. aren't for me.

Anybody around here pick the brogue boots or shoes from a while back?

I haven't seen these reports, was the issue with specific models and hides, or across the board? My go to 2030 size is 8 these days which is pretty generous, but sometimes 7.5 is just too tight in the toe box. So I go half up and use an insole if needed. But if they run even larger I might be in trouble.

I have a pair in a size 10, and it feels somewhat snug after a couple hours so I bought some size 10.5s and they feel generous but i tried a thin insole and its perfect. Although across those 10.5s there have been some that dont need the insole and some that do. I just would rather be a little more comfortable than too tight and uncomfortable

This is my approach as well. If a shoes is too tight I will never wear it and narrow toe boxes are kryptonite to me. I would rather err towards the generous side and use an insole if needed. This works unless they're just too long which why I'm curious about that "extended sizing" comment.

Seems like it's across all models - particular to the last delivery.

Withered Fig called it out but a few retailers have said similar things although it's not on the product page:

Sizing: These specific Tochigi Natural Cowhide Service Boots run a half size (0.5) large. We recommend almost everyone size down 0.5 from your typical 1035/2030 size. Only if your current 1035/2030 size currently fits very tight (possibly missized), then you can take the same size for a roomier fit that will likely fit better for you.

Miloh Shop had the same problem.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
