My shoemaker says only 2-3 hours per day for the first 7-10 days while breaking them in and no long walks until they have softened up.

Yes, Ugolini said something similar.  Naturally, I ignored that on the first pair as my experience with RTW shoes was that they were usually comfortable from the get go.  Lesson learned!

 

This pair is coming along as I am wearing them at my desk now and so have had them on for most of a day at the office, albeit, with only the occasional walk down the hall.....

 

I guess I am just new to the "break in" process and have not had a properly fitting pair of shoes before.  Amazing that I can go through nearly five decades of life before discovering I have been doing something so basic (buying shoes) rather poorly.

Congratulations on confirming your due date. Are you planning for a c section or natural delivery? It's going to be an exciting 9 and half month-ish!!

Heh. Whatever the outcome, it's an allegory--the tension between dumbed down, know-nothing willful ignorance and smugly self-absorbed, deliberate, Machiavellian deception.

And those who would embrace either.

Which shoemaker have you chosen?

Hello All,

 

In case anyone is interested in trying out Foster & Son bespoke, they will be traveling through the US and having trunk shows in various cities come April. Some pics and info shown below.

They also have a Tokyo trunk show planned for those that will be out there visiting or live there.

 

Cheers!

Did they ever put the Fred Astaire shoe into production?

It seems like they did but I'll ask Andy over at F&S to confirm.

I don`t want to sell anything or advertise brands, but I would like to share with you some of my works, these are some Chukkas handmade. I'm not Lobb, nor Lazlo Vass but I make all the work.

If you want to see how to made this Chukkas, I recorded all the videos step by step and I can upload here. I hope you like it.

@Manuel nice of you to share but this is an affiliate thread for gentlemensfootwear.com. I'd recommend starting a new thread or posting in the shoemaker thread.

@Manuel You do very nice work -- please do create a separate thread and share your videos with us!
