Yes, good suggestion.
Its not only whether he's worthem other than on carpet now as he has taken it a cobbler who has apparently put nails in.
I guess I need to have written info from cobbler as to what actual fault he verifiedand what work he has done.
I actually bought the CJ shoes at their Burlington Arcade store when I was living in London, but never actually wore the shoes aside from trying on at home.
If I noticed any fault I would have returned them,even now.
