Weird last shape IMO. Heel is quite wide and toe box is quite narrow.
I'm finding that my heal slipping a fair bit but the toe box is tight.
And very stiff on first wear.
Great looking last though.
I also have suede boots coming which im looking forward to getting.
pics to come

Yeah i found the actual heel and instep to be Bit large on the hiro. Ive gone with a MTO Olfe last to see how that compares.. Will post pics in 2 months when they arrive lol

OMG Zara have an MTM service? Why did no-one tell me?!

Just to confirm what I said yesterday, TM Lewin are opening a store on King st SYD in August.

If any of you jokers are interested in a bit of part time work looks like they are hiring, though on recent form the majority of active members here would struggle to demonstrate the requisite people skills.

^^ "if you're not going to buy anything, fuck off."


On shoes, sometimes I still wonder about what is this fuss about Goodyear Welting that a lot of SF seem to be overly obsessed about.

Sounds like usual customer service in Sydney to me.  rotflmao.gif

 

On a more serious note, some shoes arrived from Herring last Friday.  Considering the order was placed on Monday, that is bloody quick.  Dont really like the garish gold buckle.  If anyone knows how to tarnish it until it turns into a bronze/brass like color, please help.

I would suggest vitriolic acid, which you can get from a hardware or motor store (just ask for battery acid). Failing that just say something like "Blake Rapid shoes are better than Goodyear welted" on the forum and you'll get your vitriol for for free.

Seriously though, I suggest soaking a rag in the acid and then applying to the buckles which will tarnish them quite quickly. If they don't tarnish straight away just keep applying till they do.

I suggest chucking them in the dishwasher if you can remove them from the shoe. Seriously. Could work.

Why not wear them a few times and see what happens.
