Just received this picture of my next pair today.[/IMG]

probably, this is a sign of a lack of confidence in his work.

Thanks Sincerely


Resole for USD100 as beaters or chuck them if they have 3 dunkings.

Is this the Shoe Porn version of stalking?

No, this is the Cravate_Noire version of realising that one has come to florence one day too early.

I rehosted the pic on imgur:



Jefferyd also posted these 82 last chelseas around the same time ... the mirror shine on the toecap is marvelous.

ANDREA VENTURA SHELL CORDOVAN I just purchased these on ebay from Italy. BIN was 230 euros, I offered 140 euros and did not expect the seller to accept it (I bought once from her previously some Silvano Sassetti double monks). Retail for these is aroud € 350. This will be my first pair in shell cordovan. Is ANDREA VENTURA Firenze a good maker? I've only seen some AV shoes on Yoox.

Bar none the most lickable soles I have ever seen. And thanks for the compliments. Pictures are crap because of terrible lighting.
