I love these Frankenvass majorly - took some guts to go out there and wrangle them I'm guessing as the result could have been a horrorshow. Are these the ones posted in the Vass pron thread? if so they look a lot darker and more conservative. but I like both - first shoe in a while a big turn on
Just recived my shoes fr howard & yount, loving them so far However after only walking around with them for about 10 minutes one of the shoes already looks like this, is it something to be worried about? The creasing looks weird. The other shoe
100% functional. The stitch straight into the topsole makes a strong, durable & relatively water-resistant welt. More durable and more water resistant than blake or goodyear.
The braided stitch goes straight into the insole. Again, a more durable construction than most methods. Does it need to be a braided stitch? Of course not. Does the Lobb Museum finish have any purpose other than cosmetic? Is it more durable or simply "beautiful"? Aren't we spending so much money on shoes BECAUSE we like the cosmetic aspects?
The norvegese is a combination of functionality + cosmetics. You might not like the cosmetics, but that is merely a matter of personal taste.
Somebody PM me when the Frankenstitching pics are done with and it's safe to come back to this thread. I may have nightmares just from this page alone.
The idea that every member of Sf should have exactly the same tastes and opinions had never occurred to me. I see now that we should all buy and post the same shoes. We DEFINITELY wouldn't want to offend someone's gentle sensibilities by actually introducing something DIFFERENT!
I will be sure to applaud (of course with a grouping of the cute "emoticons" so popular with the 14 year old myspace crowd) every time I see the same JL or EG pics posted. I will also be sure to alert the proper authorities the next time someone decides to share something they enjoy, which may be different from the lemmings-like group-think which has permeated the majority.
Obviously not for working in the law office (maybe in Texas?), but I like 'em just the same. Most shoes I see use the belly skin of gator & croc, but these use the back skin instead. Warning: Spoiler!(Click to show)
These are pretty badass. If I were Bilbo Baggins, these are the shoes I'd wear home after Smaug was killed.
