These are great. I hope this isn't a stupid question - but how do you go about starting a custom order about this? I thought I read earlier that you had to contact Paul Grangaard - is that still the method? Thanks!
Maybe they look around and see more wide people than narrow people!I wear 10C in Barrie, and it's hit or miss on availability. I wish I could get some of Leathersoul's and others shoes in narrow, but I understand when they order a batch that is not a "preorder" they don't order Cs.
I wouldn't worry about the separating parts. That is simply the sole-welt joint showing. It happens on all my shoes.
If the soles don't develop holes, they are still ok. From the toe photo, looks like you wear the toes hard. I recommend toe taps after the next resole. Will give you a lot more use out of a recraft.
Finally, don't worry about damaging the shoes. Take care of the uppers and the cobbler or recrafter will take care of the rest.
