Need some for work. Preferr a silhouette similar to CP or Crockett & Jones Rough Out suede.

Been looking at these for ages, not sure if they tickle your fancy….

I'm gonna pop down there and see what they look like in the flesh. Thanks for the link.

On Saturday was in M&S Oxford Street and tried on there Luxury Suede Chelsea Boot, for £79.99 they are not to shabby, the soles of them are a bit naff, but the shape and feel is very nice, considering the price point and company.

I've taken a punt on a 7.5 as they didn't have an 8 and the price was right, do you recon they'll do?

Burford is on the 4497 I’m sure, which typically fits 1/2 size large. As it happens I’m a 7.5 in the 4497.

I’m generally an 8 in 70’s (although they’re too narrow, wearable but too narrow. A 9 would be huge on me though). 8-8.5 in Nike and a 7 in most Trickers slip on lasts.

So my guess is “no”, they’ll be to small. Hopefully I’m wrong!

I've just bought a pair of Burfords and went tts. I tried 1/2 down but preferred the slight bit room in my true size. Could have gotten away with 1/2 size down with thin socks. Trickers say to go true. It's the 4444 last that you need to size down on.

Your right they're too small Sad anyone seen a size 8 for a good price?
I have a black 7.5 here for £285 if anyone wants them before I back them?

Not exactly a great recommendation if they wore out in 2 years.

Can't believe you wore them that much. How many days do we get when waterproof shoes are necessary?

Should have added I've done several hikes in them over here and in Oz. Walked to work in them probably 10 times a month(15mile round trip). 2 years is pretty good I'd say.

Maybe if you concentrated on them less you could find a cure for your baldness.

Jawdropping! For real? How long does that take? Any podcasts you haven't listened to?

3600 miles in 2 years is Forrest Gump territory.

You've gotta be somewhere on the nutter spectrum sporting those stats, MoB.

Its just under 2 hours each way so not that bad. i've got 34 podcasts on rotation to get me through it, it's not the most pleasant walk but wakes me up, gives me time to think and process that i wouldn't normally have.
Been doing it for about 3 years(ish) now, but 2 years ago i moved and it went from a 9 mile round trip to 15 and back then i did it every day without fail, can't do it every day now(too old).
