Bespoke shoes by John Lobb (Paris), made for member 'manton'.

If I read correctly, he didn't say it was a factory technique but rather that it should be adoptable quite easily for a factory.

Opaque finishes on soles (black or brown or even cinnabar) are a lot easier to do than transparent "natural" finishes. And less dependent on the vagaries of the outsole.

Sure, from a craftsmanship's point of view, it may not look all that appealing.

But it looks like a lady in a tight black dress.....simple but quite appealing.....anyone agree??? cheers.gif

imo, it looks much better due to the authenticity. i won't miss them.

i find this laquered showcases quite gimmicky.

that has got to be one of the nicest soles I have ever seen. And although the Lobbs in this thread are nice, the G&Gs above are for more refined and sophisticated looking, they scream of attention to detail.
