I liked Ice Box at 20:1 before the Derby. Because of scratches he went off @ 10:1. Still paid a handsome exacta with Super Saver.
He skipped the Preak. Now everybody's on him. The values horrible but I can't toss him now. Sentimental pick goes to UptownCB to complete the E/Box

I bought Vikram US directly from the factory. Vikram Italy via Singapore.
We use several style Vibram sole guards. By far, the most popular style for men's shoes is the 2337. Several years ago a few pair came back because the sole guard was de-laminating from the sole...

Correct, thats one of the advantages.

A storm welt (or split reverse welt) can be GYW or can be a "˜bonwelt', just glued in place for decorative effect.
Without poking at the actual shoes, it is impossible to say.
Excellent Bengal. We use a lot of Barbour. I never thought to go to their website.

I believe the policy exists so they do not have to fix someone's work if the shoe was damaged in the process.
