    They were uncomfortable. I have a pair of AE Daltons in 10.5 that were what I'd call snug and they have broken in very well.
    The Thursdays Captains in size 10 would never have loosened up enough to be comfortable.

    I'll probably try the 10.5 in the chukka. Just giving the shoe buying a slight break so I don't generate any ummm unwanted comments from the wife.

    Not sure if they will restock, but I bought these during an East Dane sale for under $200 and like them. https://www.billyreid.com/short-ande...644&1422=14703
    out of stock on East Dane, but I think the pictures are better https://www.eastdane.com/short-ander...1590180278.htm

    @LesserBlackDog Have you considered resoling?

    Pretty sure they are glued rubber soles so I'm not sure that's possible.

    I've had glued shoes re-soled--back when I didn't know the difference. They didn't look great, but you couldn't tell unless you looked closely.

    Go to a local shoe repair place and ask. It can't hurt.
    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

    Any idea where to buy Loake Kemptons in the US now that you can't order them from the UK anymore?
