Septieme Largeur footwear - Discussion Thread - Page 12
^ nice patina. I couldn't pull them off, but they still look good.
Does anyone know if the "greasy leather" basically the same as CXL from Horween? Also curious about the type of fur lining.
@rgweiser53 I purchased them about 3 years ago. I took a quick look on the website and they don't have the exact shoe any more. Mine in the photo are on the 174 last with dianite soles. The link below looks to be the closest model. The 174 last is pointer than the 198. I am happy with them, but would actually prefer them on the 198. One thing to note: oddly they are not made with a loop in the back of the shoe to hold the straps in place. I took them to a local cobbler and had them added, but annoyed it was not part of the original shoe.
Well yes, I've bought a pair of their Joffre oxfords in "Vocalou old brown" about a month ago. Good looking shoes these are, but the quality of leather and build turned out to be rather questionable. The color was uniform to begin with but as the leather stretched around stress points it loses quite a bit of color (exhibit 1). This discoloration goes away as the leather relaxes after wear. More disturbingly, in one place the leather has actually cracked (!!) after just two days (exhibit 2). The sole is not exactly perfect either (exhibits 3, 4). This once again is after just two wears. I am frankly rather disappointed; I did expect more from them.

Many made mistakes walking straight through and ended up the other side of building as it seems all well connected as one ended up with another shoe maker ( Diamond Walker )
Well a cool relief after all compared both brands and ended buying a new pair / Make by Septieme : )
