Yes, this is how they looked when bought (I stripped, cleaned and repolished them now):http://www.auctiva.com/hostedimages/showimage.aspx?gid=527764&image=535883241&images=535882924,535882974,535883016,535883059,535883099,535883147,535883195,535883241,535883294&formats=0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0&format=0
I got these Grenson Rose oxfords from Ebay and upon arrival I noticed the welt of one shoe is angled on the inside of the shoe. Also, the toe cap stitching has let loose at the exact same point as where the welt is angled.
I wondered what could have caused something like this (never seen it before) and if it the welt can be puled flat again when I have the shoes resoled (full resole). For pictures see http://imageshack.us/g/685/img01313201201151346.jpg/ or embedded...
I was in a local shoe store last week and noticed they sold K-Shoes. I was under the impression they were gone, but the sales assistant told me that they are in business again.
Anyone know the details? Are they still based in the UK and are the shoes still being made in the UK?
All I can find online is that they have been bought by Clarks in the 80's and I see that Clarks does sell a range called K-Shoes but that are low budget women's shoes, not the English styled men's...
I always do, and my other pairs don't have this issueOdd thing is that the tears are not trough the inner lining, the inner lining is still intact.As I don't wear the two pairs that have these tears often it might be that they have dried out indeed. Also, the shoes feel very stiff when wearing them, maybe also a sign of lack of oils?
