ThinkDerm, re-lasting can be done to most leather shoes. There was an old, interesting RJman article on A Suitable Wardrobe back in the days, maybe it's been transferred to the new site as well. Arduous and expensive work, but worth it if you're attached to some shoes that you'd like to wear with a better fit.
Ever wondered what kind of oxford shoes were worn at the beginning of the 20th century? Here's one Massachusetts-made American pair. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-DEAD-STOCK-1900-20s-BURT-PACKARD-US-9-5-D-edwardian-ANTIQUE-VTG-mens-shoes-/322168173590?hash=item4b02b83416:g:yhAAAOSwUuFWxF7n&autorefresh=true
My bad if this has already been posted, but GG has a wonderfully in-depth factory visit article with Edward Green. https://www.gentlemansgazette.com/edward-green-shoes-a/
Λ†The new Rozsnyai homepage, which is still pending, will include a list of the latest medals the company has won on international shoemaking fairs, and some snaps of the prize-winning pairs. The site will go live later this year, but I don't have the exact date.
Bump-o!
I've learned that my newest pair is a prototype that Edward Green had made up some years ago. At least it's not available in their RTW collections.Black and white summertime calfskin adelaides, no toe medallion, last 82. The black leather looks superb and had a clear shine even before polish.

Supergenius, if you're looking for a rare colour/material combination, perhaps you could just get a close-enough pair and have it re-dyed. I've seen great end results from experiments where the old dye is stripped and a new one applied. jet: it wouldn't be much of a review if I didn't provide photos for the reader. The shoe trees show that, yes, leather sneakers can be taken care of and they will look and wear the better for it.
From Mr Porter's cordial sales I got my first pair of fancy-ass sneakers by Lanvin, and wrote a detailed review about the pair.In short: the finest materials, make and design I've found so far among sneakers, but not worth the full retail price. [[SPOILER]]
Well, what does a Savile Row-trained tailor say about matching pinstripes? Go here and read for yourself: http://www.englishcut.com/2014/07/18/the-matching-myth-3/
