Managed to visit a few on my trip and bought a pair at Crockets. Looking for size 11 G fit ain’t easy in factory shops, however turns out that on certain lasts i am an 11 F fit. The lad at Crockets was really helpful, went round the back and returned with over half a dozen boxes of 11F shoes. One of which happened to fit like a glove and was the winter shoe i was looking for. No flaws on it, just 2 year old stock no longer made. At £150 it was a 60% price reduction. The quality of these shoes really is a step up from say Loakes or Barker, well chuffed.
Cheeney’s were good too, really helpful. Lovely shoes and the boots in particular were cracking.
