Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 956

post #14326 of 18752

Thanks guys. The Carmina seem like the best bet - reasonably priced and the most feminine of the bunch.  Now to talk the wife into waiting 6-7 months for MTO shoes...

Where does one get Cleverly outside of leather soul in the states? Saw this pair on eBay I quite like:

stenvent, Cleverley's RTW pairs are made by Crockett&Jones. If you're happy to pay a premium for the eccentric designs, this shouldn't be an issue. Otherwise you'll only get re-branded C&J.

Yeah know that, but if it's in the $450ish range that the eBay seller seems to have accepted I'm good with that.

A general shoe question...

 

I'm in search of a cure for supinating, which ruins my shoes prematurely, especially the lighter soled pairs.

 

Anyone have any experience with solving this problem?

 

Cheers,

I was shopping with my wife the other day looking for a pair of leather boots for her, and noticed that even high-end women's shoes/boots ($500+) all seem to have glued on soles. I hate spending that sort of money on a pair of shoes that is essentially disposable. Is there no one in the market making goodyear welted women's boots?

womens' shoes are made to be worn for a season, then discarded, regardless of price.

I brought both my mum and my sister a pair of C&J Catesby, it seems they really like it, at least after two years of wear and tear.

Insertion and removal of the lasted trees is a heck of a lot easier than I would have imagined. Trick is to loosen the laces to slide the fore foot section in first then place the heel and secure with the middle piece. Looking at the picture again I think the angle of the photo makes the trees look like they don't belong to the boot. Here is a better illustration: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Cheers,

A few reasons you're running your shoes over...

1) structural problems with the foot.
2) shoes not fit to the foot correctly
3) shoes not built with a midliner that will support the foot.
4) a combination of two or more of the above.

This seems to be the attitude of most makers of women's shoes, sadly. For certain styles I get it, but for tall riding boots I feel like it's worth investing in quality. I'm glad Carmina seems to agree.

Received today the Shipton & Heneage Wilton, they are very nice.

I went with 8.5 G, the toe is comfortable and the lenght is correct but I have a bit of heel slippage, do you think the shoes are too big in the heels area? should I exchange them for EX width?
