LCA is indeed pricey but it looks very well made.

 

I won't buy anything from Hanger Project. Their things are rather expensive when compared to the European counterparts, probably due to non-deductible US taxes. Their shipping cost outside of US is very high but i can't blame them since its cost to cost basis. Nevertheless, Hanger Project is selling very good stuff and they also have a wide variety of quality products.

Could the fit be better? Probably, maybe. Do I think it matters? Not at all.

 

Do you mean this?

How's the quality?

 

Anyway, i bought the Saphir black edition tree and it doesn't fit. So stay away from it.

I have Carmina's on the Simpson, Deia, Rain and Inca lasts. The Carmina shoe trees fit them all just fine. I agree that they can be somewhat hard to find.

LCA are very well made indeed (as they should be for the price).

Yep, that is what I use and size down.

They are definitely not as elongated as any of the carmina lasts I mentioned, but I think it fills out enough of the shoe.

I don't really know how to comment on quality. They appear well made enough to live inside shoes. Lots of cedar. Spring on both axes seem fine.

Justin, would you happen to know what last these will be on?

Also, would it be possible to have some indication of pricing?

Thanks!

Thank you Justin!

These brown calf/loden boots are getting some traction now (few interested but havent heard back for final commit)

Anyways just wanted to make sure our MTO version will be cap-toe (not wingtip)
