Quite a few of the models displayed were sporting synthetic or leather / synthetic soles. Might have had something to do with the snow outside.


My first pair are now on order - a medium brown dress bootee with medallion, metal toe taps, slightly thicker leather sole, and brass initials, natch. Can't wait.


My thanks to Mr. Carr and to the gracious hosts and hostess at LeatherFoot.


It's about time Roger.

 

A bit of premature congrats are in order.

 

 

So, may I ask what your looking at in regards to your second pair of StC's???????:smarmy:

^^^ Thanks my man.  I do love the green single eyelet derby I posted a while back, but top of the list for the second pair (says he whose first pair is still a couple months away) is the Simply wholecut.

It's never to early to look for that next pair, that is when it comes to a pair of StC's.

 

 

Congrats again Sir.

Beautiful shoes, enjoy!

And I share your feeling about not buying shoes from anybody else after this

gorgeous shoes!  And it's great that you can get fitted for individual feet!  I've got to get that process done, if I can ever get to a trunk show!

These are grey right? Retailer is insisting that this is color FUN 608.

For those interested, there is a 15 minute video on Leatherfoot's facebook page of the shoe-making process at Saint Crispin's.

Correct me if my observations are wrong, but I am pretty impressed that they don't need/use masking tapes before painting the sole, compared to other videos that I've seen of other shoemaker. To me that requires some skills.

That video was ridiculous, crazy how skilled the artisans are. Pretty much everything done by hand

Thanks for sharing

Enjoyed that video a bunch - thanks.

post #1334 of 2537

Amazing video, thanks!  Incredibly skilled hands - especially those that have the long polished nails.....:slayer:

 

Can't wait until Feb when my MTO is here!
