Roger P, those are great, simply amazing at how they were "remastered". Skoak is a class act for acting as the facilitator. I have a pair of rider shell walnut boots I want to get antiqued. May I ask how much the remastering set you back?

Amazing.  Those are not for everyone, for every shoe, or for every occasion -- but I think they are absolutely beautiful.  I saw these when the video was posted and immediately thought of Berluti.  But I'm not a huge fan of Berluti's styles, so this seems the best of both worlds.

No offense to fans of this shade, but it was a case of "like" at best for me, and at this price point I have got to feel much love to make a purchase.  Coincidentally, I had just read a blog post on TheShoeSnobBlog about the custom patina work of Alexander Nurulaeff ( http://www.dandyshoecare.it/ ) and inquired as to whether the good people at Skoak would assist in sending the shoes out (and receiving them back) on my behalf.

Having given Mr. Nurulaeff a very general idea of what I had in mind, I simply let him do what he thought looked best. I have the shoes in hand now - and while I appreciate this won't be to everyone's taste (what is? I absolutely love them. My thanks to Alexander and to Skoaktiebolaget!

Roger these look fantastic! I had a look on his website after watching the video here and I have a pair of shoes I think this may well happen to!!

Just a cool thought, no idea if it's possible but I wonder if he could customise shoe trees to match the patina work?

How long was the turn around from them being sent and you getting them back?

 

I definitely have a few old pairs of shoes lying around that could use some new vibrancy.

Thanks very much gents!

 

Frank - I'm not sure about the specifics of the products or the process.

 

DpprDr - yes - museum calf with attitude is what came to mind for me when I saw them. They also nicely split the diference between brown and gold museum in tone.

 

PCK1 - turnaround time depends on his backlog at the time you make the request - which for me was 5 weeks.  It ended up getting pushed back a couple weeks due to the Christmas holidays and our respective travel plans - we agreed to kick it into the new year.

 

NAMOR - these were 90 Euro plus shipping. 

 

steveabdn - interesting - I know Skoak has some unstained lightweight travel trees - matching stain to patina would be very cool.

My EG trees are unstained, I think having colour matched trees would look fantastic

In this years dressing room project I'm planning on having some shoes on glass shelves as display items and the trees will obviously be pretty visible too.

I'm off to email about having my shoes redone!

Here is a recipe for Zug and Beva.

Thanks for the info - very cool.

A few pictures of my newly purchased Galways on the 82 last, in dark oak and walnut country calf. Single Dainite soles and size UK 9E.

Enjoy! I am looking forward to the contributions from the rest of you guys, later this week.


More pictures... (Click to show)






































I never saw these when they were originally posted, did you get these from us, looks like our make up with the single Dainite. Anyways, great pictures. Awesome color reproduction.
