Not too sure of Alex Plokhov boots are artisanal but there is a good deal on Myhabit for some mid combat sole.

Alex Plokhov too

I only have one pair of L&F so limited experience but they fit tts, maybe somewhat wide. Here's hoping the same holds true for the derbies I ordered.

Why are there people advertising some artisanal stuff on Y! when these ads are put up somewhere else?

Check with the guys in the shoe care thread. Leather is leather. Ccp doesn't recommend creams just FYI, guidi I would treat like any other leather. I'd guess my ma+ are guidi leather and I use damp cloth then some saphir.

some people prefer a beaten up look so they just use a cloth and no polish or whatever

there is something called neats foot oil which is possibly the best thing you can buy for your shoe/ boot

it softens the leather, restore the natural oils and does not change the color.

it is taken from the leg joint of a young(neat) calf.

Thanks y'all, much appreciated.

They intend to sell it domestically for a much higher price. They'll only pick up the piece from the overseas seller once someone wins the auction. If the username is CCPISGOD, then rest assured that item is being sold elsewhere cheaper.

@notwithit the reason I don't use any of the oils or saphir renovateur is two fold. I like a bit of wear and tear on my footwear. The best thing Simone ever did was stamp his handling instructions all over his shoe boxes. The other reason is that they darken the leather as well as interfere with a lot of treatments, i.e. carpe's destroyed horse or wax and resin treatments. Plus, renovateur is greasy and tends to leave a sticky film over the shoe.

Thanks for explanation man.

I was abit confused and thought Y! allows non Japanese or proxies to advertise on their site.

Are they Blake stitched, or Black rapid?  It seems that with soles that thick, a simple Blake would be tought to do.

I think they're blake stitched with another layer nailed and bonded. At least that's what my cobbler told me, and the blake/rapid shoes I have don't feel like my L&F. I'm really not that sure though so hopefully someone else will chime in.

Also, I just found out that they don't have the l&f derbies I ordered in 43 so I'm out of luck. Anyway, here are the boots after some wear. I think the toes are less bubble shaped than when they were new for some reason. You can see the difference between the part I haven't colored and the rest.

Damnit, I really want the derbies since I like the boots so much. Comfy too. frown.gif

This is Blake rapid:

 

This is Blake:

It's pretty obvious that the blake stitch can result in a pretty thin sole, but it's not the sturdiest construction, especially if you don't have a channeled sole under the outsole.

 

Blake rapid is sorta a hybrid between blake and goodyear.  It can result in a pretty rugged shoe,  I try to avoid black.  Or if I can't, because I like the style... immediate topy.

Easiest way to check what type of welting your shoes/boots have is to look at the interior of the boot.  If there is visible stitching, it's blake or blake rapid.  A lot of Italian companies use Blake construction, but you go to Northhampton, and people will look at you like you are the devil.  Also, and really, Blake stitched shoes are much harder to resole, generally and are less water resistant.

blake/rapid is quite different and much better than goodyear.
