I don't think so. It's likely to be Alfred Sargent and possibly a couple of G&G models.
I don't know about the AS part of the equation and cannot speak to it. I can tell you, if it is AS, it is not going to be G+G models. I have had numerous discussions with Chay and I can't see that ever happening. What I can see, and after a perusal of the web would like to see, is a reintroduction of the Wildsmith styles. Whoever is going to reintroduce Wildsmith (Cheaney, AS, EG, some other bloke who has never made shoes before) should bring back the styles as well as the name. Edited by Burton - 7/2/12 at 4:41am
not that there's anything wrong with it. there's yet to be someone, who can explain me the attraction of shoe soles., anyone?
I'm with you on this one.
Yes I appreciate that it takes time and craftsmenship to create a beautiful sole. But I can't figure out why it matters once they have been worn a few times. At that point the beauty is more or less destroyed. And besides who looks at the soles of the their shoes anyway?
But I do admire the beautifully sculpted soles as works of craftsmenship. Edited by Gdot - 7/2/12 at 5:08am
