Just ordered a pair of single strap monks in mid brown and a pair of chocolate brown suede desert boots. Pleased about the desert boots as I haven't been able to wear a pair since my late teens. In my original post I did say I was after a pair of brogues, but on checking out the quality of the punching, I was not so sure, so in the end picked the monk. I spied a set of Dainite soles and I thought my luck was in, as the rainy season is apparently about to start here, but, unfortunately they belonged to another customer. However the guys in the shop said that if I can get my hands on a set, they would certainly make them up into shoes for me. So, does anyone know where I would pick up a set of these? I'm living in the PRC but am in Hong Kong at least every other weekend. Would another enterprising shoe repair place in Hong Kong carry them? The prices of these shoes are really good, given that they are made to measure The desert boots were HK$1450, and the monks HK$1600, 50% deposit paid, with collection next week. Got to love Hong Kong!
