Thanks for all the kind words! I have been working on this for a long time and it is exciting to finally launch on Styleforum. This is where I got my start selling online and it is exciting to finally be able to offer nice shoes across a full range of sizes instead of just whatever closeouts I was able to get my hands on.
My goal, summed up in one sentence, is to provide high quality, classy, comfortable shoes at a very accessible price.
The prices online now are just for pre-orders. When the shoes arrive, the benchmade line will cost $250 and the handgrade line will cost $450.
The benchmade shoes are completely made and should ship from Spain next week. All shoes will come in boxes with cloth shoe bags.
There is a no-questions-asked 30 day return policy on unworn shoes that starts from when they are received so anyone who pre-orders is safe.HERE

The Spanish shoes are on three different lasts. They are all D width with a good amount of room in the toe box. I chose the shape that worked best for each style.
The English shoes are made for me by Joseph Cheaney & Sons to their Imperial Collection standards with a sole that I much prefer. The Gryffin and Beaumont are on the fantastic 208 last. The Northampton boot is on the 125 last and the Sympson oxford is on the chisel toe 225 last.

Are there any plans to offer them in wide widths?
Yes! But I couldn't start with everything.

Truly sorry. I am starting with just a few in each size and unfortunately I had to skip 11.5 to start. I will definitely have it for the second shipment if there is demand.Edited by AnGeLiCbOrIs - 6/17/12 at 7:20am
