Received reply from PS today, no luck. I guess I'll continue lurking...

Can you not just get the Cage resoled? I have the name of a company somewhere that I've used in the past - where you can mail-order the shoes in. The quality of what they do is better than high-street, like getting new shoes back.
Oh no, my Cage shoes are in very good condition, I just wanted another pair for future use. If you can provide me with a name for that repair shop I would be grateful as I'm sure I will need it in future. I guess it's far from me, but better to spend a bit more money on shipping and keep my favorite shoes.
Can they do something about worn leather as well, or is it sole repair only?
I'll be lurking around here if a nice pair of off-white/ivory/cream shoes appear on sale...
I finally found a pair of PS Ernest shoes in navy, they arrived yesterday. Now I have a dilemma - should I reinforce the leather sole with one layer of rubber or should I just use them as is and put rubber layer once the sole has been thinned a bit? I did not do this on any other pair of shoes I have, but maybe I should...?
Thanks for info, here are some pics btw:
Takes it to another level!
How would you rate their quality? There's a pair of Grenson at the same price which is higher in quality I'm sure, but I really love the shape of these boots. They have a more pointed edge and just look more elegant.
The question is, are they worth £200?
£200 is cheap for a pair of leather shoes with a designer label IMO. I think the price is fine but you could wait to see if they go into Sale.
