Are Shannons seasonal?

 

Seems like a year or so ago, they're easily found. But now that im looking at one, there's nary a pair to be had.

 

That said, are styles seasonal?

Thanks guys!
Babygirl Leaman came into the world happy and healthy at 3am this morning!

Congrat man!

I was in pretty much the same situation, nearly put on my newly acquired Galway for the trip but then changed my mind and stick to my snicker, much more mobile tongue.gif

Regarding discrepancies between the wooden lasts and resin lasts identified as the same size... wood shrinks across the grain, but not along it, over time. (A wooden cylinder turned on a lathe will be perfectly round in section when new but decades later will have shrunk to an oval.) Assuming it has been cut with its grain running lengthwise, a near certainty, a specific wooden last made years ago will now be shrunken across its grain, so a shoe made on it will be smaller - narrower, not shorter - than the same model shoe made on the same last, say thirty years earlier. It would be interesting to know how many years EG kept their wooden lasts in service.

Great insight! Thank you for this.

 

In my personal experience...The dover's that I have listed in my signature (wooden lasted) and the new resin lasted dover's that I tried on just the other day fit night and day differently. My old dover's are tighter width wise and slightly shorter length wise than the new production.

 

Again, I like a snug fit. For me, if I'm paying $1k+ for a pair of shoes they ought to fit like glove and I refuse to settle for anything less or else I would just buy some Clark's and call it a day. Closed facings, excess room, slipping heels, and gaping is totally unacceptable for me. I don't have issues with blistering or detrimental impingement because there is a fine line between snug and too tight. The quality and preference of your socks makes a world of difference also. Thus, for me, the differences in lasting material makes a huge difference. YMMV.

See I take 8.5 UK E all my shoes are snug fit but most of my shoes have close lacing but I have no issues as far as heel slippage or blister etc

Gents,

 

I have a small concern that I hope you all can answer. I recall that there was some discussion in regards to finding the resolution, but I do not remember if we reached an answer.

 

While I brush my shoes before and after every wear (including suede), I have noticed that one of the shoes has "hairs(?)" coming out of it. Perhaps an indication that I may have brushed a little to hard at one point? Any thoughts on how to fix this? I'll post this over at the shoe care thread as well. 

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

I think it's been suggested that you pass it over a flame to get rid of the hairs. I have not tried this.  Mine are not as noticeable or isolated as that ^.

Congratulations!  Girls are the best -- be advised though that your spending priorities are likely to change before you know it.

I agree, especially as the lone man in the house, including our two dogs. Biggest impact for me? The realisation of how much time I wasted before our daughters came along.

Safe to say, I'm happier now!

I have asked the very same thing couple of months ago and some suggested that it must be I brush too hard, but I believe the brush itself is too strong and is making the suede look fluffy.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

What kind of brush have you used?
Anyway a simple lighter will remove that "hair" in few seconds.
I "burn" regularly all my suede shoes, it's the best method to make them to look always fine and brand new.
(it's used also during production line at final finish stage)

Simply be careful near stitching.

Congrats BenLeaman. Hope everyone is doing well.

@BenLeaman - i was wondering if you are buying a new pair of EG to celebrate the new arrival. Maybe a Chelsea...?
