I've came across this beautiful John Lobb St. James oxford (bespoke?) , however, the condition is not so good. I want to know if it is possible to repair all the damages?
I realized. I've called the store near me, but they told that these shoes were made by John Lobb on St. James Street in London. They (Hermes owned) cannot repair it for me. Do you know how much I am looking at? $500?
I will try to persuade them for free of charged by explaining this and that. () Maybe they're generous enough to fix them for me ()
Better ask JL or any cobbler/shoemakers around your area. The number of people replied that have experience, knowledge, or expertise regarding your issue on this thread would most likely be zero. And the number of people on this thread having bespoke shoe experience would be very close to zero.
