Clearly they're challenging AE's dominance in the lucrative market of orthopedic semi-dressy shoe-neakers. Are there enough old people to go around? Time will tell.

(whispering) Lobb Paris Doc ...'Jambon Delicieux' I certainly enjoyed the video (and saved a copy). Lovely music too (in Gm). I like the term 'Spiral Wholecut' mentioned earlier in the thread. Wouldn't buy a pair of these myself, but the process was a treat to see. I hope Marcel is documenting his wholecut in photos and video and also can't wait to see the final outcome.

Looks better than the 2008 Lobbs.

True-dat. 90% of me love the level of make, while 10% of me think "Do those shoes have rain/snow covers on them?"

The 10% could become the proverbial thorn in my side . . . while with a plundering desire for loving them.

I don't. Not a fan of the long wing action.

None of them have, yet.

I like the vintage 2009.

The lines are simple , not fuzzy and compared to the 2008 , no stupid punching or laser engraving.

I like them but i like my shoes very simple because i like using different patinas on them.

Mais non! They look like something Xavier Aubercy dreamt up after eating something that disagreed with him!

Would you like them better if they were made of light green mouse skin? Lacing on the side of course!
