Of course they have the #8 NST on Aberdeen in 7.5 and 8, but not 8.5. Probably the only thing I would consider.

Mahogany (calfskin) PTB on the 12d list. Modified last. Wonder who they were made for.

Nah. Going to save that money for a couple upcoming MTO deposits. The only thing I would have grabbed would have been the 2210 if they had an 8.5D.

Over the winter I sent a pair of Cigar Cordovan LWB back for restoration, the soles needed replacing and the upper was a little worn. The process was painless and took about as long as I was quoted. These have always been my favorite and most comfortable shoes. Wearing them was on par with wearing a pair of sneakers.

I was really impressed when the shoes came back - they did a great job and the packaging and presentation made it feel like I was getting brand new shoes all over again. However, the shoes were immediately painful when I put them on just walking around my carpeted floor. I accredited this to the restoration and stuck it out thinking they would break in, but my heels are covered in blisters every time I wear them. I've worn them about 20 times now and they're by far the most uncomfortable shoes I've ever worn. It's kind of odd, they don't fit any differently than they did before, no heel slip or anything, but something must have changed due to the restoration. I'm pretty unhappy about it considering they were my favorite shoes and the high cost of restoration.

Has anyone had this experience or have any idea if there is any recourse other than selling?

I hope so. I think it's pretty cool that Patrik wants in.
post #85709 of 122416

Any guess what a FD-97507 might be?? Ravello, barrie, and the size is right for me.

post #85710 of 122416
For whatever reason, I keep falling off the seconds list.

Will someone forward 11.5D to me?

[edit] Got it! Thanks!
