The "scar seam" shoes here are kinda cool:

So neither of these pairs of A1923 footwear appear to be on sale but their prices are significantly lower than usual.

It's because of the sole. Goodyear vs Blake. These have a Blake construction rather than the traditional Goodyear you see on most Augusta

I don't wanna try to apply logic to baller boots but is it really $600 less labor for a blake stitch than a goodyear? I feel like dude could price them the same. MA+ already tops $2k for blake stitch. It strikes me odd they're THAT much cheaper

Just saying what I was told.

Yeah, I believe it 100%, just trying to wrap my head out it.

These arrived from Idol Brooklyn today (http://www.idolbrooklyn.com/) - great service over there, accommodated international shipping very well. I always feel a bit bad buying from a small store on deep discount from overseas, but will purchase again in the future.

It's great to see stores like Idol, Calculus, etc. with great vision and buys popping up and hopefully doing well enough to stay in the black. Japan is lucky enough to have a lot of these smaller boutiques, but the "buy on sale" retail mentality of the US and Canada seems to make it harder for these places to afloat.

Oh yeah, shoes.

Nothing to feel bad about.

I miss the old spot, GrayMarket. Idol is so much more street.

Is going for derbies with a captoe that are in a destroyed leather (Cdiem) a bad idea if they're generally only going to be coupled with plain black denim? I sold off everything I had so these would now be my mains for outings and whatnot.

post #21566 of 22279
i really don't think the roughness of destroyed horse works well with captoes. i also hate captoes in general, so ymmv.
post #21567 of 22279

What if they're really cheap haha?

post #21568 of 22279
You shouldn't buy something just because it's cheap. You'll end up with a lot of things you are less than happy with.
post #21569 of 22279
That is true
post #21570 of 22279

Yeah I already passed on some inner laces due to not really desiring enough to part with the money, so this why I have not picked up anything yet. What I've considered so far are still really beautiful pieces to me but I am not quite seeing them work in my really limited wardrobe.
