Anyone kindly have any pictures of Skye Cordovan please? Been meaning to buy a pair for a while buy I'm not sure if their tip is as sharp as that of Northcotes? I have a pair of the latter and love them but am not very keen on the sharpness of the tip since it tends to bump easily and split.  I've also noticed that C&J has got rid of the Skye 2?
   Thank you guys. I live in the UK but by the sounds of it I don't think I will be goin down the route of made-to-order. As bad as it may sound I dont intend to pay any more than their existing price really. I suppose the other question will be: how difficult would it be to change the colour of the shoes by myself? I.e. could I remove the dark brown colour and apply tan colour to them instead? Does this pose a danger to the shoes? PS: Thank you for clarifying the names...
I have noticed that C&J do not use the tan colour very much in their shoes. Is there a particular reason for this?   Would they finish a pair in tan if one asked? I would love a pair of Skye in tan.   The other question was: would C&J make a pair of boots with lace holes all the way up rather than having those horrible metal "claws" on the upper half which make a mess of the trousers.
Been looking to get a pair of tan coloured shoes for everyday use and the Dune Montenegro ones seem to fit the bill. Are there any opinions on Dune shoes in general in this forum? Have attached a picture of the shoes here. They seem to have a sleek design and two tone (although I'm not sure how much the two tone will show in real life).  
 This is your original post where you ask for advice and if they're worth it.  This is your post after a few people have given you opinions and advice telling you that these shoes are not worth the money. Yet you insist that you will keep them and give them a try. So why on earth do you ask for opinions when you have made up your maind anyway? It's pointless apart from increasing your post count.
   I must have misread the information somewhere by the sounds of it. I did call Burlington Arcade shop and the manager was very kind and asked me to post the shoes there and C&J will fix the issue and send them back to me. However considering that the issue is so minor and that it's only the glue that has come apart (the stitching is untouched) would it be better for me to fix the issue myself using a bit of Shoe Goo or some other recommended glue? Or should I not mess at...
 The stitching has not been affected, only the glue. I will give them a call to check.  If I did that then when time comes to re-sole my shoes C&J will not accept them.
I have a pair of Northcotes which I have had for only a few months and they have been worn about 20 times so far in dry weather. They are stromwelted with Dainite rubber soles. However I noticed today that the right shoe at the front has developed a split, i.e. the rubber layer has separated from the other layer above it. Should this be happening? I didnt expect something like this to happen to £350+ shoes (which I may add have been treated with care). And is there...
I suppose Holiday season complicates things. However considering that they have a sale on (which means that their sales are very likely to go through the roof) one would think that they would increase the staff numbers. I know plenty of businesses that do not allow their employees to have time off during the holiday season. It's a good job that I did not need these shirts for a present otherwise I would have been very disappointed.
Having heard good feedback about their shirts' quality recently I have purchased a few shirts from them. I have received one of them and i do like the quality. However as far as their customer service is concerned I have been very disappointed. It takes forever for them to reply to emails or to notify that a certain shirt is out of stock (even though it did show as in stock on their webiste) and no matter how many times I have tried to phone them they never answer the...
