J...Love the antique Russian calf Edward Green, are you sure it's not too small for you?

G...There's so much cross over in our collections that it's frightening. I'm espeecially taken with the Grenson semi-brouges.
Actually the EGs are a bit too small, something like an... 8 or 9? I can't remember

They look different now as I got a little carried away polishing them. I will post updated pics.

The Bordor looks amazing.

Gdl, WOW, very impressive collection. They are all gems. The Nader, Heddon, wow, and the Santoni looks very similar to the JL Bordor. The Newbury on 888 is extremely handsom and the Mantellassi wholecut 969 is absolutely beautiful. The contrasting toe polish on the 969, did you do that or it came with the shoe?

Skalogre, what a beautiful shoe the Loding is. Did you order from its website? I couldn't figure how.

The JL Portman is sublime , so as the monk strap. Is the monk JL? What's the name of it. This is another impressive collection. Can you ID the other shoes in the picture?

Thanks ! The 969 was antiqued by SM with this fabulous brown toe color. The picture does not capture well the beauty of the antiquing work. I'm just hoping I won't ruin it by polishing them...

Very nice shots TKDkid!

I think you really captured the essence of it: Beautiful english shoes and a german watch, now you only need to get a german pen and you're set.
Do you happen to know if your watch is just a rebranded Nomos, because except for the face and watchstrap it looks precicely like the Nomos Tangente I have on my wrist...

I think I'll follow suit on that as it's a really nice idea and a great picture!

TR...where to start. All absolutely gorgeous. The Yardley and the JL 2003 really stand out, as does the bespoke Chelsea boot.

Truly a breathtaking array of footwear. I salute you!

The Stowa Antea is actually a copy of the watch that Stowa had been manufacturing around the 1930's actually. No association with Nomos.

Anyway, back to the shoes. What an amazing collection of footwear lies in this thread! Uhm, should I feel dirty for ogling other people's shoes ?
