nah i thought you meant you could get them for 70 now, non-sale price. am i wrong in assuming they're going to be in the sale after christmas then? was asking how much they'd be in the sale + your discount

Don't get discount on top of the sale prices pal it's just the VIP sale so you get first dibs before everyone else rinses it. Was trying to hook a brother up not dutty them!

You want a 9 in the chelsea 5 mate

They also have very recently made a chelsea 8 model, similar to the 5 but narrower slightly pointer toe which looks cooler. has a single danite sole rather than the double thick one on the 5

I'm only having a poke at them.

Personally i think the 8 is much nicer, I've got them giving me a ring when they get sizes in.

I would go for the same size as you wear in Desert Boots. I have a pair of Malis in the same size as my Desert Boots, and they fit slightly slimmer width-wise (probably due to having more secure lacing) but length-wise they are the same as Desert Boots.

edit: I hardly ever wear mine because they're a pain to put on and take off.

Yeah seeing as I'm too lazy to put my blazers on because of the laces I'm worried that I'd never wear the malis, they are nice though, will see if a clarks store has stock so I can have a look. Cheers Andy.
