Red lining & red pull tab
Brass eyelets
Mid Brown binding along the edge of the facings
Natural Barbour welt
Red Dainite sole




Here is a pic of the Allan boot
 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 




My thinking is that the red accents of the pull tab and sole would look quite nice as it would bring out some of the red tones of the cordovan. All payments would be made directly to Richard and I would not be involved in any way. Total price would be right around $650 including delivery. It would be like $150 deposit and then balance in 10-12 weeks when they are ready.

 

Please shoot me a PM if you are interested. There is a price increase coming August 1st, but Richard has agreed to hold the price.

Thank to everyone who is interested in this boot! We have enough people to go into production and Richard from Shoe Healer shoudl be reaching out to you today (if he has not already done so). It should be an awesome makeup!

But they look great, zippy; this picture may make me cave.

Today I have received my first pair of stows!! Great deal in German ebay.. Espresso on dainite.. Original box, dust bag and polish.. These were listed as used but they are exactly like new!!! 200 euros 😳😳

Only one question: these are uk 9,5 witch is my normal size on formal shoes.. Lenght seems to be ok but they feel a little tight on toes😞. Will this go ok with the break in process??

Thanks!!!

If they're just a bit snug on your little toe then they should give eventually.

I found that the calf leather on my stows was pretty tough to break in compared with some other leathers, but it's very comfy now. A good shoe shop will be able to put them on stretch for you for little or no charge.

Thank you smartlew!

Or if you happen to have a pair of shoe trees handy, put a couple of pairs of socks on before you put them in the boots and leave them with the laces tied between the first few wears. Not sure that's a SF-approved way of doing it, but it helps if a good shop isn't so easy to get to.

 

I also snapped up an eBay bargain myself, hopefully they'll arrive by the end of the week!

I've done that before with shoes that just needed a little loosening up.

Was this a deal for 200 euros?

He used to have some wing tip listings showing the box ends stating they were Bourtons. So I'm assuming 4444.

I'm sure this is covered elsewhere, so apologies, but the beat way to deal with a deep scuff like this?



I would guess glue it down, and carry on as normal but open to suggestions.
post #3809 of 4890
I did something like that once.
I carefully glued it down with super glue, let it dry, then polished.
Seems to be okay and hardly visible.

There's been a thread or two about this in the classic menswear forum.

New boots! Stow in black cordovan on dainite...insoles say 'St.James Collection for SUGAR', so not sure what the deal is with these. Very nice though!
