I second Kokos. I have used them few times for resoles an they did a great job. They are also recommended by C&J London shop as an alternative option to their full factory refurbishment.

For all the Peaceniks on SF

 

We can't quite believe it ourselves but we did order this pair of slippers as a sample. If you're a 10.5, they're £149, we'll even pay the delivery charge to get them out of the shop. Absolutely perfect for your ironic 60's party.

I presume, the slippers have a music box built into the heel, playing: "We shall overcome!"

Bit of a journey, but I will have to give them a try. General guess what they charge for a Topy?

based on this I would estimate 20-30 GBP perhaps

That's just the right foot, the left plays the Internationale!

Fred Astaire shoes

 

We've just got these back from the workshop. They're a period copy of the shoes that we made for Fred Astaire and they're just about to go out again for a sample RTW version to be made. We thought we'd better photograph these while we could.

arglist,

 

Thank you. We're adjusting our new last to make the toe shape you see above on our rtw version, should be quite something.
