So much of the discussion on the topic is about what tailors and cobblers can acccomplish. Having had shoes made at Zee's and Dophen, I'm not sure that USD200 is worth it for the duplication of a more expensive pair because the leather the shops use is quite stiff and the soles are uncomfortable. If you want something unique or personalized, however, then by all means.

Or if your feet are different sizes. I wanted to follow-up on my earlier post, as well, with my satisfaction wtih Zee's. My feet are about a size different. The shoes Zee's made for me were the same length. Upon receipt, they first tried to tell me that both shoes fit (a logical impossibility) and then that it was the style (again, a logical impossibility). The issue was probably my assumption that both shoes would fit (and therefore would have to be different lengths) and their assumption that somebody wouldn't want to wear mismatched shoes (I hope this was their assumption rather than incompetence). Should our conflicting assumptions have been addressed at the fitting? Assuredly so. Despite my failure to bring it up, they cut down one of the shoes and put on a new sole for free. For that, I am thankful and will return.

Hi all,

 

Thanks to Luk-cha i have found the thread on Zee's. I had posted another thread looking for more affordable options with similar style to Gaziano and Girling's and he suggested i look at Zee's. Im still pining after the G and G's but figured whilst i save up i can get a pair or two of zees and see if i like them!

 

I have browsed through the thread but can someone confirm for me. Can Zee's replicate a shoe based around a photo? I am not in a position to get to HK but was thinking if i send Zee some basic measurements and a few photos of a shoe i like- would they be able to make me a similar shoe?

Yes, fritzl, kindly provide a few substantive sentences to support your grammatically-challenged observation so that we all may be enlightened.
