I think those Belgium-made shoes for Harrods were still gentlemen's shoes.

The "˜almost' begun when Mr Sweeney had to show his oh-so-trendy credentials and named the styles after film stars: you had the "˜Bogart', "˜Newman', "˜Dean' etc. (That must have been his South African period.)

looking at the quality of leathers, constructional know how and all the small details , to me n.d.c. is very high end .....

but maybe you know more than me ... what would make the difference to classify n.d.c. made by hand a non high end shoe against others ?

what i would define high end is: alden, santoni, lidfort, ndc, edward green etc.

what i would define second class is: paul smith, officine creative, premiata, john varvatos, trickers... and in terms of qualtity also gucci, prada and miu miu etc.

anyone disagree ?

It's not meant as criticism. I admire and appreciate your website. That particular pair of G&G are uncharacteristically overdesigned, to my eye and, I'll bet, to others as well. But please keep them coming.

Thank's well-kept.

It is certainly loud.
However, the design is classic.

Is that a retail outlet or do they make their own shoes?
