pediwear is shoes international apparently. i spoke to them on the phone and really nice guys… said solovair sales are through the roof at the moment as people are backing away from DMs recently - https://www.theguardian.com/money/2019/nov/30/are-things-going-wrong-with-the-uk-beloved-dr-martens-brand

apparently the factory cant keep up and they have real shortages of stock everywhere

new sl boots.
Absolutly love them, the left one fits perfect, the other one is a tad too small in width and hurts my little toe. Is this sth. a shoemaker can fix or should i just go with some pain with the first wears? The leather is also a little too shiny for me, any tipps to make it more dull without fucking up the leather or should i just let them age naturally?

So you don't like the fit or the finish. What is it you like about them?

You're in denial because they were expensive. We've all been there.

Can anyone comment on Yuketen Maine Guide sizing? From what I remember they come up big, right?

At least a full size large.

I'd urge you to either try them first or buy from somewhere you can return.

Yuk sizing is mad. I've owned three different pairs over the years and always moved them on as the sizing was never right.

They're built like tanks and weigh a ton so it's even more important that they fit right.

I love the silhouettes (…not chunky) and the quality of the leather. The fit is near perfect (except the mentioned problem) and i could live with the shine none or less. Just wanted to ask if there are some products/tips to remove the shine and make the fit perfect from the start. These are my first decent lace up boots, i usually only wear chelseas so i have no experience how they break in. To clarify, all of this has nothing to do with the price and i could still return them, but i won't.

cheers Doogan Cool
