When i used to work as a cobbler, cemented shoes were very problematic because if you got caught in the rain the sole might separate from the rest of the shoe (i live in the UK and its always raining here) or there would be a need to occasionally glue back a few bits here and there. I noticed the problem quite extensively for the brand Bally. I won't say cemented construction is crap, but i would personally just use them as summer shoes. Glue can break down over time and...
I have a suspicion that the makeup is the same as whats available from all Crockett and Jones retailers but the photos just makes it look different, adding a 'red' tint.

This has put me off getting shoes with moderately 'high heels' but i would love to get my self some 'John Lobbs Prestige', problem is they have slightly higher heels than most shoes. Does anyone have experience with this form of ankle pain?
Haha, too much of a risk for me.If they don't fit and i have to sell them on because of no return policy on custom, i'd make a major loss. I haven't no (never really thought of it to be honest) I would ideally want to try on several different lasts in 10.5/11 F, next time I'm heading to London i'll give them a ring. They never offered to
