No way, man! He's a good friend and I would never dream of doing such a thing! NEVER!

I think Mr Nurulaeff does remarkable things with his talents, especially in restoring, reviving and re-inventing older and less-loved shoes. The example above is not my thing at all, and in general I don't like the trend of "patinating" toe caps and the like, that seems to have become so mainstream. But there's an appreciable art form there in imagining and executing a dye-on-crust or re-dyed project, for which I have every respect nevertheless.
For the first time in many, many years and after much research and study here about shoes, I "only"spent 260 € in a pair of spanish shoes, my last adquisition. Yes, it is not the same quality , but I think I took a wise decisión. I hope asian consumers enjoy their babys and take care of them
