I actually got my Corthay from this shop in Lyon, but they stocked both of the colors in the last I wanted, and I really did not want to deal with customs and all that if I had them shipped upon completion in a couple weeks.
But thanks for all the compliments on the kicks, I am surprised so many people like them!
^ You bought them from Upper Shoes in Lyon? They even sell them online, and have two models on sale (700-800 euros). No experience with this hsop though.
Yes, I bought them there. The shop was completely legitimate--they have three locations within about a mile of each other in Lyon. Probably the best shoe store I have ever been in--but keeping that in mind, I have been in neither Leather Soul nor Leffot. I am in Lyon for the next month and a half, so I figured I would just shop local.
What makes you say that, friend? They are approximately 70- 80 years old, and worn. It will take some time, using regular conditioning & polishing to fully rejuvenate the leather. In their time, Crosby Square made, arguably, the nicest shoes in the US.
