Everything is overpriced here, even with 40% off! but it's hard to nail down on her female size online.

Are the shining duties shared? Not in the Cleav household, I'm afraid though I have to say I enjoy doing it.

She helps occasionally.

Cross-post from the Justin Fitzpatrick thread. I was finally able to make it up to Leatherfoot yesterday and collect my first pair of JF shoes;

Model: Windemere

Last:: MGF

Colour: Mocha (NB - Justin says these came out a bit darker than standard. The shoes shown on his web site likely reflect the standard colour more accurately: http://www.jfitzpatrickfootwear.com/products/windermere-mocha-box-calf )

First off, the fit is superb. This isn't surprising, as I had the opportunity to be fit by Justin himself when he attended the Leatherfoot trunk show some months ago.

The last is very handsome, IMO - a nicely chiseled toe box, and overall slender, sleek shape that stops short of looking delicate. I added a pair of Justin's plastic travel shoe trees which are adjustable and absolutely feather weight - they will serve very well in their intended role.

Out of the box comfort is superb and overall quality initial impressions are very good indeed. The colour and style should prove to be very versatile and I am sure that I will enjoy having these are part of the rotation.

Thanks Justin!

Fun pics! Mrs. D. (well, technically Dr. D.) has no affinity for nice shoes; luckily, she accepts my armada of footwear.

RP, great support for one of the SF members (and bloggers). The shoes look great.

This kind of hand workmanship is rare today.

True, is in the rarity but this style is not for everyone.

I have to respectfully disagree. It is a basic oxford wingtip. Only the spade shape of the sole is unique, and this isn't an "extreme spade" by any stretch.

Bestetti and Saint Crispins are using spade points on the soles of their shoes more and more today. Put one of their labels on this pair and we would have a page of compliments.

I'll have to respectfully disagree with your respectful disagreement. ;-) "This style is not for everyone" is likely a fair - and almost certainly accurate - comment in respect of any shoe you care to name. After all, there is no one shoe that all will proclaim to be to their personal taste.

As for aesthetics, the spade sole may not be extreme but it is vertainly visible and decidedly different. It's not hard for me to imagine that some would find it off-putting even though I do not. Heck, we have guys here who claim that a Topy outsole utterly ruins the aesthetics of a shoe - and those are barely visible at all.

Anyway - very nice pair of shoes.

Well, is there a negative comment about EG, G&G or St.C. shoes anywhere on SF's several shuu threads? I cannot remember one but I'm certain there's a few to go around. Autocompliments sometimes make me cringe.

I love you mate...in the shoe tragic sense of the Brotherhood of St Crispin.
