Looks fantastic - dark brown is the best colour for intrecciato IMO.
They are more comfortable than leather soled shoes.Also like the look.Most of my shoes are leather soled, crepe's only go with a certain, limited number of styles IMO, but worth having in a collection.New york ranger mentioned earlier he had taps installed in his crepes...if you see this, let me know how they were attached.
I tried to add a heel tap to my crepe soled Aldens. Nails just wouldnt take, which I suspected. The crepe just isnt the right structure to hold a nail. There are no cobblers where I live, so its a DIY job. Would screws be better, or screw / glue combination?
Look at the pair on page 1 of this thread, beautiful bordo calf norweger, full 360 goyser. Looks great. This is the look I want. I dont think it overpowers.
What are peoples thoughts on the 270 v 360 goyser? I want this to be a very casual shoe, hence the 360. I think the 270 is great, but does maintain some sense of formality.
Was thinking along those lines.Re the cigar cordo, Vass found some just for me
So, I've settled on a pair of norweger, new peter, cigar cordovan, jr soles (double to single)' steel toe plate, 360 goyser, natural stitching, natural sole edge. How do they sound? I can tweak...not sure about the double to single tapered sole..they look good, but not sure if they are too dressy for these casual style shoes.
Keep calm and carry on. Nothing to see here. No damage done.
..he hasn't, yet - I'm waiting for him to respond. He normally gets back to me on a daily basis, but the last few days he has been quiet. Weekend probably. Was hoping to get some feedback from SF members who have bought in the P2 last, to help me have a more constructive and expedited communication with Reszo. Edit: I realise I may have contradicted myself..Reszo is waiting for me AND I am waiting for him..
Any thoughts? Rezso is waiting for me to get back to him. I'm thinking double leather, flush steel toe. But not sure about size...what's a 10.5D Barrie in the P2?? 44 or 45? I'm normally (just about) an 11E (or a wide D), but the Barrie D extra width fits me perfectly.
