mdubs - congrats on a helluva shoe. Its a classic.
epc - love your LWBs. I need them.
Yes, AE has them in stock. However, I was able to recently buy a BNIB pair on eBay for half the AE price. Keep your eyes open as they appear from time to time. I like them at $75 but not at $150, but then again, there isn't a decent alternative. I must have ripped through 5 or more pairs of Totes.
I am a 10D Barrie and purchased the Swims Mobster in 2XL. Anything smaller would not fit.
I am sure some of you know about Dandy Shoe Care http://www.dandyshoecare.it/ENG/dandy.html
The job he does is amazing, to bad he is in Italy.
Anyone know if there is someone similar here in the US that can pull off antiqueing, restorations and transformations the way this guy does?
hmm I wonder if it was Bellerose.. I purchased a pair of modified last seconds, #8 captoe bluchers, from another member here that were a makeup from that company.
Nice sock selection.
Your thick ankles must be very conducive to the fit of the 2-eyelet Chukka. The barrie last must have been made for folks like you with full-figured heels, because my boney heels can't fill out a D-width barrie shoe.
