Oh okay. thumbs-up.gif

Thanks for the clarification; the shoes might not fit then. If anybody wants them, I'll let them go for $650 shipped (this should cover shipping, pp fees and sales tax I paid).

You know the story by now...Barney sale. Learning from Stitchy i was able to navigate the sizing jungle and end up with the right size. Big thanks to NAMOR who bought them and shipped them to me. I´ve orderd lasted trees from Skoaktiebolaget and ended up paying what a pair of benchgrade C&J + trees cost in Sweden icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif The leather is a bit dry and have some small scuffs but nothing that won´t go away with some polish (what do you use for Vintage Ceder?)

Nuff said, here are the pics biggrin.gif

they look great. it makes me really happy that i was able at least help one person avoid the hassle of ending up with an ill fitting shoe from the barneys sale.

enjoy them, and wear them in good health. i cant wait to wear mine. maiden voyage should be soon.

Yes.  But its not worth it.  Sell and order another one would probably be cheaper.

 

Off the top of my head, DWFII @ OR, Paul Krause @ AZ, Liza Sorell @ OH should all be able to do it at a cost.  Maybe you should enquire Suzaanegeorge @ SF.

 

The boots would most likely be disassembled completely and put back together.

 

Why not just go bespoke and all out with lizard skin suede shaft, ilcea radica calf cap, and sea turtle or sharkskin quarter?

Not only is it not worth it, it's not going to be a job that any established shoe/bootmaker is going to be eager to take at any price.

IMO

Paul Krause's weblog regarding shoe reconstruction/resizing that involves pattern alternation.  But yes, not worth it IMO for a pair of G&G RTW.
