Wow that's a great looking boot.

What a mark-up! It takes the piss. And more so when they refuse to tell you who makes the shoes.

I'm always wary of made-for shoes. In most cases, you're going to pay more for a pair you could easily get elsewhere. For example, W.S. Foster's EG line is in the region of £725. Go into EG next door, I say.

I've always thought that this was pretty comical. The same shoes at over £100 less are literally 6 doors down the street.

The mark-up is absurd.

I think N&L use Cheaney's lower-line - i.e. boots £399, now £299; shoes - £369, now £269.

Given that Cheaney retail at around £300, that's a big drop. It isn't of course if they are made from Cheaney's mid £200 range.

At times, rarely, the markup is acceptable if the style is unique. Most likely it will still be cheaper than going MTM solo and with no waiting period.

Shipton & Heneage is a nice exception.

Great shoes though. :)

Pikachoo: beautiful, original boots.  Shell?  What last is that, by the way?

thanks a lot guys! they're on the new peter last, saddle shell nod[1].gif

edit: will try to post better pics later, these are from my phone
post #13829 of 20756

I've been fantasising about commissioning some shell boots, probably from Vass, for ages...this is timely inspiration!  Now to earn the money...weekend is over!  "Saddle" isn't on their standard list of colours for shell, at least not on their website; any idea what else they have?  I won't be vulgar and ask you what they cost, but could you talk us through the details of your order?  If you don't mind, of course, feel free to tell me to mind my own business!

I ordered the Lancaster from Yoox a few weeks ago for $298. Brownish calf. It was awful corrected grain leather so I sent them back. Plasticky yuck! Hope yours are different.
