I figured that mentioning buying CH shoes was frowned upon outside of the SWD subforum.

I saw them in the store couple of days ago. I actually like them, would look great on summer with a casual outfit.

What to do? What...to...do?


I know: put them in the sun and the sun will kill all that crap.  So I left them on the deck one hot summer day for the sun to beat up.  Yes, I know:  pure genius. 


I got home from work and the fuzzy moss was dead but the rubber was a very dark colour and misshaped and/or melted in some places.  Additionally there were small pieces of stone embedded in the rubber that once removed left gaping holes in the sole.  Nonetheless I tried them on and walked in them a couple of days later.  And that was the last time I wore them

 Fast forward to this year.  I was going  through some clothes to give to Goodwill and I came across them.  So I said to myself, "Self?  Why don't you get them resoled with a leather sole?"

"Grand idea" I answered "but do we know any cobblers?"

So with google's help, I found an old Italian cobbler and he agreed to do my shoes.  Here is the result.   Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
He took a couple of liberties but they came out pretty good for a pair of shoes that were moments away from getting tossed out.

Great post, and revival. Shoes look good.

Hey Romeo, sorry for the delayed response... yeah these are the LE longwing buck called "Archer". I also thought they were going to be kind of clunky, but I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and tried them on - pretty lightweight and about as un-clunky as a longwing can be. I ordered a .5 size larger than I normally wear and it fits perfectly.
