The top pair was done by C&J. Had them done a couple of months ago and the sole went spongey after <10 outings so they did another complete recraft free of charge.
The dainite sole was done by a local cobbler. £125 vs £50
These are a well thought out shoe with a real pizzazz... from the red Dainite soles with interlay red dainite in the heels (nice saving of AUD40 for Topys)... to the sexy ghillie treatment... the unusual beige colour and the detailing like the scotch thistle punching to the counter. For USD259 on sale "I done good" as they say Down Under.
I'd like to buy the "Cavendish" tassel loafer on the 325 last. I was wondering about the fit. I own a pair of CJs on the 236 last, which I really like. I also own a pair on the 341 last, which is much less comfortable in the toe area, as I have rather wide feet.
Does anybody have experience with the 325 last as well as with the 236 last? How do the compare with each other? Many thanks.
