Yesterday I visited the C&J store in New York City, and tried on some shoes. The Pembroke on the 325 last, and Cardigan 4, on the 335 last didn't have enough toe room for me, thus making the shoes unwearable. I ended up buying the Bangor, made on the 365 last. http://www.crockettandjones.com/product/bangor-darkbrown#.U3LcTCi9bXw I tried a few other shoes made on different lasts also. However, the Bangor was the only C&J shoe that fit me properly, with the addition of...
It's been some time since I posted about shoes here on SF. I have just the sort of feet being discussed, and require the type of last being sought after here. My Brannock size is about 10 (measuring to the end of my big toe, and 11.5 using the arch length slider to the ball of my foot. The 10 measurement is really useless, as I have long toes, and a size 10 or even 10.5 shoe would mean very squashed toes. Most shoe fitters are inclined to think this should be my size. ...
Just noticed on the Alden of Carmel website, that the Jess Monroe shoe will be put back into production for 2014. J. Gilbert Footwear in Seattle, is now accepting pre orders for a fall 2014 delivery... http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/Shoes-Kudu_Plain_Toe_308.htm Jess
I posted my photos using the middle size setting (350 x 700). It seems when I click on the photos to enlarge them after they are posted, they end up with the contrast too high. The vamps look ok. However, the stitching on the tops looks very unnatural. It seems the same effect is happening on the DW boot posted above, though to a lesser degree than on my boot photos.
Ray, Like you, I met and had boots made by a number of the well known boot companies in El Paso, TX., then I traveled further, and had some Paul Bond and M.L. Leddy boots made. I knew that the cities of Mercedes, and Raymondville in the Rio Grande Valley were also known for having a number of custom boot shops. I found the article you posted. However, I could find little to no discussion about the South Texas bootmakers on any internet boot forums. In 2006 I took a...

Thanks Ray! I am originally from the Northeast. I always liked the look of a "businessman's" dress boot, and often wear them both with jeans, as well as trousers and a vest, or sport coat.

Here are a some of the boots that I designed and then had made by various custom boot companies. As you see, I favor smooth leathers. My boots are mostly made from Italian Kangaroo, Sheridan Kangaroo, or a combination of the two. I require a fairly flat arch for my very flat feet. These boots have all been either made that way, or relasted to fit that way. For some reason when you click on each picture, the boots themselves in the photos get really grainy. The photos...
Thanks GamaH! After I designed the Tres Outlaws boots, they were given a name and listed on the Falconhead website. Falconhead decided to call them the "Boo Hoo Blues." Here is the link: http://www.falconhead.com/photo.php?pic=photos/product_photos/DSCN6011.jpg
