Wow, those look seriously nice for the money spent. Keep us posted as to how they break in. It will be interesting to see how this company fairs as many of these clothing startup outfits run into serious trouble when they have to ramp production when success hits.

 

As of right now though, they sure seem to have a very nice product.

@doporcelli can you give a little background on the Goodywear + Norwegian Welt construction on the George?  Very cool boot BTW.

@europrep The George is first and foremost a Goodyear welted boot. However, I really like the look and waterproof capabilities of Norwegian construction. Mixing both constructions gives the George additional character since the Soho last and slim-profile studded rubber soles are intended to make the boot more urban an elegant. This boot can easily be worn with jeans or nice trousers, even with a suit when the weather gets a bit nasty. Glad you like it.

Thanks Daniel. I'll post some pics of my new loafers next week. Received them Friday at the office, but was headed straight out of town. Haven't even had a chance to try them on.

Intriguing new brand. Subscribed to the thread and want to see more pics from people. I really like the channeled soles.

Just a quick question -- I see that the MTO fee is $275 minimum. My feet are weird and my left foot is half a size larger than my right. If all I want is a RTW model with the left shoe a half size larger than the right, I have to pay $275 extra? That seems a bit excessive. I'm not against paying an MTO fee, but if all I want is an odd-sized pair of a RTW model with no changes to leather, sole, or any details in between, I'm expecting to pay much less than a $275 fee on shoes in the $400-range...

Guess I got deleted. I wan't trying to be a dik by my comment just pointing out the misunderstanding. I'm guessing since that guy isn't an affiliate vendor he can't talk prices or something? puzzled.gif

Hello

My experience in shoes is mostly with Church's, Cheaney and C&J. I have recieved my first par of Cobbler Union aweek ago, the Francis II double monk. The shoe is beautiful and very very comfortable, I tried them after running 10 miles in my morning run. The details are on top and the time and care thay have put on the soles and the quilted lining is amazing. So I have requested a pair of Louis boots that will be delivered late august. The service is excellent. I will return to CU again, maybe for a pair of deep brown oxfords.

Just ordered a pair of the Louis boots for delivery late August. Came across the Union on Instagram and really liked the look of their boots. Had a few questions and Daniel could not have been more helpful so decided to give it a punt!

Will do. It's going to be a long wait 'til the end of August. How have you found the loafers - they look great.
post #29 of 66
Bump for this. Found them on IG and their lineup looks great! Some more reviews, impressions, and opinions from those that have walked a fee miles in the shoes would be helpful
