I was hoping to get some sizing advice on a semi-structured toe 1035 last .
For the 2030 I wear a 9 unstructured & 9.5 structured.
I’ve been contemplating on picking up a pair of 145 oxfords on the 1035 last w a semi-structured toe, would a 9.5 fit similar to the 9.5 structured toe 2030? I’ve read that 1035 is a bit wider than the 2030 or is that wrong?
I’d appreciate any input, thank you.
For what it's worth, I find 145 oxfords on the 1035 last notoriously inconsistent. For example, I'm a 10D Brannock. My Withered Fig Mushroom Oxfords fit perfectly a full size down - 9.5 is too big, 9 is perfect. Yet my Withered Fig Horsebutt Crust in a 9 feel a half size too big, to the point where I could do an 8.5 unless I'm wearing thick wool socks. Well, I tried Standard & Strange's 145 oxford in tobacco chamois - and an 8.5 is pretty much perfect with thin to medium thickness socks - a full 1.5 sizes down. They feel the exact same as my Withered Fig Mushrooms. Withered Fig's blog seems to confirm the Horsebutt Crust oxfords run a quarter to a half size big as well.

I would just advise buying 145s from somewhere you can try and return as necessary.

I guess. I'm more concerned if they go full grab bag. Imagine paying 600$ and getting something bad.
These are just all of their products exposed on the website. $600 SS boot, $100 MTO, $100 SS boot... they're all just old products they have sold in the past. Clearly they're doing something to the website, but this definitely doesn't mean there will be an online SS.

Its all cleared out anyways. I refresh the boots section 150, then 88, then 68, then 57. It's a shame though, cuz it would be exciting. Especially if we all got to play swapsies/trades with whatever we got from the grab bags.

What size are you in the 2030 last? unstructured and structured, in case you tend to wear both types of toe box.
They're actually the Standard & Strange makeup.

If you're buying from S&S they do free returns and exchanges as well so you should be good to go and adjust accordingly.

I wear 9 in 2030, so full size down. I've tried 9.5 and it's a little too loose for my liking. I don't change sizing between unstructured and unstructured, they both feel close enough for me not to notice on the 2030 boot.

Hmmm...I was able to order the Peanut Kudu in my size & even received a confirmation e-mail, before all those boots disappeared. Maybe tomorrow I get an "oops..." email from them.

Seems like there's a lot of variance in the 1035 last. Thank you.

Anyone have the black or brown calf Chelseas? I feel like chelseas are an unpopular style here (maybe because they're basics?) but I've been wanting some lately so though I'd ask..
I tried to jump on the black calf Chelseas yesterday on the .com while they popped up at $340. Probably would not have worked though. I have been interested in some Viberg Chelseas too - they look great in photos, but in use I have seen some strange creasing, which is typical of a lot of Chelseas. Thus I have been sticking to RM Williams (they offer wide sizes too) - sort of like why bother with anyone else for Chelseas, especially given their comfort factor? If I go higher end than that, I think Crockett & Jones offers nicer stuff than Viberg in this category at similar prices, with some gorgeous styles.
