 More instant gratification purchases or more bespoke purchases? IME with that sheer number of shoes you purchased last year it could make sense to go bespoke.  10 Vass can get you a pair of JL Paris bespoke.  Even 10 pairs of AE seconds could get you some US bespoke shoes.
 Not all shoe manufacturers always replaces insoles during recrafting.  For example, John Lobb replaces insoles selectively upon their own discretion while Allen Edmonds don't replace insoles or gemming but only welt, cork, outsole, etc. The ones who replaces insoles do it because either insole worn down or too difficult to attach new gemming.
 They don't always replace insoles?
 Why so curious? You wont see anything significantly different.  Besides, you could probably get a good sense of how shoes are constructed from the various shoe manufacturing plant videos on youtube. Churchs dismantling.  Credit to Achille on the now defunct French depiedencap forum.              
 Plum is the color of a full glass/bottle of wine.  Claret is the color of a puddle of red wine on top of a glass-top table. Or Plum is darker than Claret, which is darker than chestnut. Both plum and claret have a hint of red hue.
 Just pointing out there's a slight difference between cutting corners and probable patterning.  If the tongue is in one piece with the vamp, I don't think the pattern allows the shaft to be cut also in one piece with the vamp.  Just saying. Ugolini designed F.U.
 Meh.  Shoelace express has more options in length, style, and color.  Such a disappointment.
I just wanna see more T&A and more blood and gore from murders of my favorite characters.
 You do realize it would be incredibly more expensive to get rid of that seam? Especially if you assume the tongue is on the same piece of leather as the vamp.  The size of the usable part of the hide would have to be rather large and wide. Cordovan are not usually that big of a size.  This shit aint long wing bluchers, its long wing boots, where much more leather is required to make the boots... Gotta have reasonable expectations.
 Preference.  Vox is a bad inspiration for most.
