I saw the same combo in old shot of a Stefano Bemer (RIP) photo shoot in his store - bottom front shoes.

Those look superb! Personally I don't like the laces, but a part from that just perfect. How do you experience the quality?
post #17704 of 19564

Hi J,

 

The laces are a bit festive, no doubt.  I initially planned to replace them with black, but they have been growing on me. I think they kind of bring out the eggplant tones in the shoe - which themselves are a very interesting and hard-to-peg colour. An easy fix if I tire of that extra splash of colour.

 

All of 2 wearings so far, but I am very impressed with the quality.  Excellent finish and very soft and supple calf - the break-in period was essentially the first wearing.

 

You know I'm a big fan of Vass.  I claim no expertise beyond that of a reasonably informed consumer when it comes to judging leather quality, but when I compare, say, Vass and St. Crispin's side by side, the latter impresses as better quality calfskin.  I would put these a notch below St. C's but above Vass when comparing standard calf.

 

The fit is VERY close to my Vass U-last, but perhaps just a smidge narrower through the waist.  Almost spooky similarity, actually.

 

Overall, I'm very pleased.

 

Roger

Thanks for your answer Roger! Been eyeing a pair myself, and heard many good things about them. What's the price at, around £900 or somethin right? We'll se if and when I pull the trigger.

Yes, they seem to retail around US$1600 - $1700 at Leather Soul..  Pretty steep, but having them in hand I do understand about the good comments I had heard from a few people about them.  I still think St. Crispin's is very tough to beat at this price point, but the ACs if anything are even harder to come by.  I'm happy to have these.

Virgin on the Ridiculous...3 x American 1940s Girls who haven't been able to get a date so far...







It's not that they are unattractive...maybe they have been locked 'indoors' too long?

Do not like monks normally, but those monks are great!

Ok, weird question. If I am a 9 in St. Crispins and 9.5 in G&G what size would I be in Converse sneakers?
post #17714 of 19564
Lol! Most likely 9. Are you regular width?

I guess? I need sneaks to walk to yoga in. #yuppie
