Reading the last five parts of the shoemakers progress, the 'critiques' have become more prolific and more negative... Jealousy at its best. Unbelievable work. "amateur" or not. The fact that they are handmade trumps any 'style' deficiency that all the poseurs on this site seem to know about. Isn't style personal preference anyway? Shut the fuck up.

I also get a kick out of the people who take the sarcasm of shoemaker literal (i.e. You say you can compete with Lobb? You have a long way to go..) Damn it people - is there a language barrier?
The guy has a hobby and is OBVIOUSLY talented.


Bravo dude. And don't 'market' your product. Just sell them underground and charge a shit load. There are many people out there who would accept imperfections as perfections.

Yeah you have copied the FootJoy type wingtip and it looks a little out of proportion but fab nevertheless...

I blew latte out of my nose on this one....LOL Time for a new latte. But more power to the guy who made these. I'm impressed. Keep at it! I looked at the other shoes you have made and you have a consistent style and point of view, the mark of an artist.
