Anyone used this Chinese shoe maker?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I found this http://www.etsy.com/shop/shoemakers?ref=seller_info yesterday and thought it held some promise. I dont know if they are actual photos of shoes they have made, and am not a member of etsy to message them with questions. I thought before I go to that extent, I would see if anyone here could vouch for this maker?

The shoes look good in the photos and the prices are good. But no experience with them.

Looks great. For those styles and workmanship with that price!! If you end up purchasing please do tell me how you like them. Edit: I take back what I said. I was taught if something is too good to be true it mostly is! Who knows if the person selling those shoes is some scammer. Infact based on those pictures it looks like each shoe was taken at a different location. If you are going to buy from this "shoe maker" i suggest you ask very specific question.

Never bought anything from them but I'm pretty sure that I have seen the name mentioned before in a thread on sf.

How do you know they are chinese shoe makers? I didn't see any detail information about the shoe makers on the website. They dont even give a brand name. If you could give me about some info about the factory and brand of the shoes, I probably would find some insight information about them because I am Chinese.

Say's Hong Kong for their location, just not on that page. I've been eyeing them as well.

They only have 2 sales so far....

Nice looking shoes, but not enough information about who they are for my liking.

I saw that too.
There are several descent Chinese shoe makers back in mainland China, although it's been years since I wore any Chinese label. I probably will do some research on Chinese shoe makers this winter when I get back.
Chinese do make some descent sophisticated stuff at least in the watch industry, it's gaining more and more attention.

If you could post details of the shoemakers in mainland China, it would be a great help!
I'm a British 12 1/2 F fitting and am living in Guangzhou for the next twelve months. There are no shoes suitable for me anywhere in this city. I brought two pairs of brogues with me, runners , and a pair of hikers. I should have brought more! Any advice on where to get some made would be appreciated.

Some very nice looking shoes though I would wager the leather in this line of shoes and boots are corrected grain and paper thin. They look fine but won't take a beating for long. That monk chukka doesn't look half bad but you can tell it's not high quality leather. http://www.etsy.com/listing/55232628...-leather-boots

I'm rather interested in these, if someone has any experience with them. The lack of feedback on etsy worries me though.

The Etsy store reports a grand total of 2 sales, so the lack of feedback is not surprising.

Basically this is cheap leather. Looks good from afar but up close you see it is cheap. I guess at first glance I thought it was okay. After seeing lack of reviews I decided to do a bit of investigation work. Take your chances, this is no Italian leather hand made shoe. This is mass manufactured shoes. http://www.made-in-china.com/showroo...s-AR-208-.html Here is where this "etsy" shop got their photos from. Company: \tAn Rui Shoes Company Ltd.
