John Lobb sole question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I bought a pair of John Lobb Newland monkstrap shoes on eBay a while ago. They never quite fit me, so now I've decided to sell them on B&S. While taking pictures, I noticed the soles were different than the two other pairs of Lobbs I have. Anyway, has anyone seen these soles before? Are these signs of a resole, or what I'm really hoping isn't the case, counterfeit?

Those are real. That's their standard sole.

You should look it up next time: Link

What originally concerned me was after checking the Shoe Pictorial Index and the pic for black Newlands, pic, has the black/light tan sole I was more familiar with; also, the stitching of the logo patch on the yellow bags is uneven.

Thanks for confirmation.

Thanks for confirmation.

The Newlands are from the Prestige line which has the two-toned sole. Yours have the standard sole.

You realize that his say "Newland" on them, right?

What does that sticker on the sole mean? I have that on my C&J Belgraves as well.

It specifies the materials used in the construction of the shoes.
In this case, upper, insole and outer sole all show the sign for leather.
