Here is a pic of my 522s in shell cordovan in the wild.
I had a great experience ordering with Philip Carr also, what a gentleman.


what color cordovan is that and what was the upcharge?

I guess you did not realize that this is just a trial pair?


Upcharge for StC with Cordovan was 200€ a year ago, but since then, the prices have risen a bit most likely.

Not sure, I've seen a few pairs of these they are made by Magnanni and they have a natural tendency to do this. To the touch the leather feels dry.The finish of the shoes appears to dry out the leather which becomes very thirsty - so creaming/conditioning is needed excessively.

It's not good.

Perhaps others can share some advice on this.

The EGs I just wore (Midfort in dark oak antique) looked like this when I took them off a minute ago (actually worse). After recent threads I used the last of my Lexol on them and those creases disappeared. YMMV.

P - I realize it is a trial pair, just trying to add input. the left foot shoe looks ok, the right slightly off - was trying to be helpful!

Well, Ugolini took care of that, thanks though . You are quite good if you can see that from the picture of the trial shoe (and did not conclude from the provisional markings on the first last); it's true my right foot is slightly problematic in the toe area (though not much). I should have some more Viennes trial shoes and some from another Italian maker soon, so more work to come for you .

Wow, I really like those a lot, though I do not own a single pair of EGs!

Did you wear it once in that year and a month?

Soles aside, shit looks pristine.

Nah son, at one point (from March 2010 till like Sept 2010) I was wearing these at every dress outing at least 3 x week, thus the toe taps. I think the soles are almost worn thru (dark spot). Either way, they were looking thirsty and I gave them the Lexol x Meltonian neutral cream treatment. Then went to the roof deck to take pics and proceeded to show teh wife why I must spend $1K on shoes
