I thought you hated Heschung. Or was it just the Heschung-made JL Paris shoes?
I hate the boot that I have, the one that was also sold under the John Lobb label. The "aquabuck" leather was a pain in the derrier to clean after walking thru mud and snow. The boot was supposed to be water resistant but it really wasn't. Their shoes on the other hand look relatively well made, either Goodyear or Norwegian welted, and the last shapes were quite nice.
