I understand your views on this matter, and I am not 'judging' you by any means.
Being that you are a recent member here, (not that I am old) I can imagine how strange might have my "assistance needed call" sounded to you.
If you have noticed- I didn't mention you specifically in any of my posts here on board, so you could have just move on and get over this when you didn't reply on my PM in the first place,
instead of calling me aggressive and saying that you are now glad you didn't help me.
No one here is, of course, obligated to help anyone, it's just that I thought if a fellow member sharing the same passion is in a position to help, that he will, and that he will later could count on a returning the favor.
I apologize, once again, to you and anyone else offended by my words.
The 50 EUR or 41 GBP was more of a symbolic "provision". It represents a little more than 10% of a value of a rejected shoe.
I am aware of a airplane option, it's just that I cannot easily take the whole day off work and travel to Northampton blindly -looking for one pair of Chelsea Oxford shoe and risking they do not have it in my size.
I wish the EG factory shop is doing a phone orders like John Lobb I bought several rejects from, but they simply don't.
I hope we could just carry on with the thread and enjoy they EG shoes.
I wish you wear them in good health and enjoy them fully. They are real beauties.
Also, English is not my first language, so I might sound raw sometime.
