I used the last modification program. Fit is good but still not perfect. Should went with testing shoes instead. And personalized lasts.
So according to that chart Navy shoes are the most versatile... And no black shoes with tan pants... And all those grasshopping peacocks... I blame StyFo. Or MFA.
There are shoe washing services in Japan. It's probably useful on high humidity parts of the world.
DWFII rarely if ever thread into those standard circle jerking brand specific threads to break up the daisy chain. Mostly it's those brand fanboys ventured outside and heard a differentiated opinion and face melt.Not to defend DWFII, but his quality standard is the bare minimum at the high end of the shoe spectrum. See the bespoke shoe thread.
Very nice. How do they wear?
 Most of them no longer posts on SF.  And the very few actual shoemakers left on SF are willing to jump into this cesspool. Besides, if its Nick V. vs DWFII, why not let them sort it out and observe their shared wisdom?
 On what basis do you have to discredit DWFII's experience and expertise in both shoemaking and shoe repairs?  On what basis do you have to validate Nick V's experience and expertise in shoe repairs?  And how many shoe manufacturing plants or workshops have you personally visit and tour to assume DWFII is speculating on the retail operations? Just because Nick V's experiences validates your argument does not make DWFII's experiences any less true.
 FYI the velocity of money remains very low and has not recover to anywhere close to pre-lehman levels.  Yet we are still okay. Deflation is bad for the economy is a myth propagated by one school of thought thats aligned not with reality but political motivations. Lets all get side tracked from the discussion.
 The OEM for Kent Wang/DC Lewis and many other OEMs can make shoes for less than $350 SRP, as long as you are willing to sacrifice for either quality of material used or your own margin.
Yes. For resoles/heels, fixing hand-welted shoes is exactly the same as fixing goodyear welted shoes... As far as re-welting goes, not everyone is capable regardless of the construction...
