I've always wondered what they do to shoes after they do this. Now I know.
The same "issue" happens to Bonafe, EG, and G&G. And have seen it with StC too. That is no big deal TBH. Museum calf is also more prone to this than french box calf. I don't believe it is batch or quality problem.
That briefcase is a winner right there. Would you mind taking pictures of the interior when you get them?
I did not know that they have to be on the same last. Both are trickers, perhaps this is not the best thread to ask, I apologize for riding on Farhad's poor experience with a reseller.Your post seems to allude that I am a cheapskate but my purpose is just to minimize wastage, I prefer not to throw something away if it can still be used.

Not to detract from the main issue here but I am genuinely curious if the dainite outsole can still be re-used on another pair of shoes or would the stitching and removal caused it be unusable on the next pair.

I would like to reuse the dainite on the old shoe.

There are conditioning agents in it but I don't get why it is being constantly pushed as the gold standard for conditioning...
They are also low maintenace, unlike girlfriends.
Elephant skin is great. Virtually indestructible, it is naturally a fire retardant also. If you're fighting bush fires, there is no better skin to use.
Hello wook,   We have now finalized the specs and it would be as follows: Model: Carmina Split Toe Last: Alcudia Last (Round, slightly almond toe that is perfect for a Split toe) Color: Marron Vegano (A shade of brown between mid and dark brown, the current batches of Museum brown have come up abit too dark) This color will take burnishing and antiquing well with polish and cream.  A reference to the color is provided...
