You can buy a $100 pair of shoes every year (which look just fine to everyone) I bet not a single person here is wearing shoes (or any article of clothing) that is 10 years old. $600 shoes are not a value. They're a fetish. Admit it. Embrace it. Flaunt it. Think you way missed the point, or, are a throw-away guy. Then I would agree.

Once broken in they often become favorites because of fit and little maintenance needed. Also, the character of the leather...
Our most popular (and my favorite) is this: http://woodlore.com/mm5/merchant.mvc...ode=Shoe-Trees It's much fuller in the vamp and heel. Also, has a double tube, 5 springs. Easy to install and remove. Ive seen the same tree retailing for $75.00. Only difference is the name plate!

This look is becoming more and more popular. You may want to take a Q-tip and some dye to touch up the crack a bit. Then go over the shoe with your signature, Venetian. Great stuff. However, I agree with DWFII. It's not just the way the look now rather, the way they...

Saw lot's of stuff in this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=246466 Got me to ask, What's your gait? The most common is where the middle of the sole, under the ball of your foot softens first. I've also seen toes wear first. Lateral, either inside or outside borders, across the ball can wear quickly as well. In those cases, stitches will appear to be worn. As alluded to, they are lock stitches, meaning, they are independent of each other. They won't...
