That is fascinating, you rarely see something worn on SF nowadays. Usually it's OMG-look-at-my-brand-new-shiny-pair-of-___.

 

How many times have you brought your shoes back to StC to refurbish during these 5 years?

Also, does anybody have experience using a non-StC shoe repairer to change the heel? I have a Danite sole chukka.

Yes I am also guilty of posting new shoes mostly. I think there used to be a thread showing shoes that have been worn.

I've yet had to sent my shoes back Stc to refresh as I have a good shoe rotation and the soles are quite thick, but i am sure it will be in the near future and it will done on my personal last which I didn't have when I ordered these.

I don't think posting new shoes is anything to feel guilty about or apologize for.  And I see plenty of pics of shoes being worn - and have posted plenty myself.  I think our friend needs to look around a little more carefully.

All this talk of new shoes have created an itch. I think I need to shoot Phillip an email.

That is always a good idea!

After admiring St. Crispin's (from a distance) for quite a while now I have decided that the time has come for me to go down the St. Crispin's route as soon as the UK trunk show is announced and get measured up for their personal last.

 

I have two questions specifically about the pricing of St. Crispin's.

 

What is the upcharge for the personal last?

 

What is the upcharge for the seamless wholecut over and above the standard one.

 

A seamless wholecut on the personal last would be my "grail shoe" and as I have a big birthday coming up in the next year my man maths may allow me this indulgence.

 

However, I feel that there are other more reasonable (read cheaper) offerings I would be missing out on which I would no doubt get a lot more wear from. I need to work out how many pairs of standard shoes (G&G, EG, JL, Corthay) these are worth to me.

 

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for the harsh lighting...it was a quickie.

Very pretty, t. A nice patina is developing.

I don't think this man gets the recognition he deserves. @Ttown you are the man.

With those words, here are a couple of new arrivals I've just received.
