This is why I love them. Before I got them recrafted - the sole was paper thin and the heel dovetail was all but gone. They came back from C&J looking like new.

Can you tell me how much C&J charged for the recraft?

It was a while ago now. Might have been in the region of £80 - £100 but I can't be sure.

One of my all time favorites, the venerable Florsheim longwing in shell cordovan. Should have kept them...

Those shoes look like the Shar Peis of cordovan.

smile.gif True enough. They more properly belong in the 'shoes with character thread' but I couldn't resist.

I have very wide feet and all my shoes end up a bit like that. But it is one thing I like about cordovan that it just goes wibbly-wobbly - whereas my calf shoes end up with the Grand Canyon across the toes.

Good God, what a thread! I feel compelled to join in with a cross-post:

Mid-brown shell cordovan penny loafers with Norvegese stitching, heavy welts, double oak soles, split toe and a suprising hourglass stiching on the penny strap.
