THose who have indicated their interest, please let know if you prefer the Uetam last or the simpson last. Several recent split toe GMTOs have been on the simpson last and they also look good, although a round last would be more of a traditional match.   aneuhauser (uetam preferred) esteban hiver maxwu822
It is not over yet. I am unfortunately going to bow out but i will still continue to administer this. If anyone has questions, post here or PM me and I will help to the best of my abilities.

Also they may tend to crease more if you have low volume feet and the shoes have higher instep or...
The shoe with the braided laces and leather tips. How do you remove the laces for cleaning or replacement?

One shoemaker tells me it has to sit longer in a last but for reasons i do not know. I like them alot. FWIW, Vass has refused to make me a pair of unseen "seamless heel" so it is not available as an option on all their models.
The former would be close. It is a place in Mallorca and i understand that it is pronounced as so-ye in its Catalan form. The natives on this board can probably confirm.
I would not recommend that in this instance. This would be too worn and I would take DW advise on this. Also Shell looks really bad after wet conditions, although the waterproofing quality remains. I use topies because half the time i cannot find a good cobbler to resole my shoes without sending them back to the original shoemaker. There are better shoes to use for inclement weather. Topies work if the floor is slightly slippery but if it is a downpour or heavy snow they...
