    Really nice Claes. How many GG shoes do you have? A picture of all your GG shoes at the same time would be epic bro.

    I have 6 at home and a 7th on its way! The 7th will be especially interesting to see, a deco Bowlly in midnight blue!

    Sure, I'll take a pic of all when the Bowlly arrives :slayer:

    Very nice shoe but I particularly like the near perfect birdseye shots you provided as it really displays the shape that a wearer would see.

    Even if it's Marcus's (owner) own shoes he's put a price tag on them in store... I can assure you the finish of the shoes are nothing less than amazing. The feeling and texture of the stingray paired with the spade waist of the deco last is truly a beautiful match.

    I believe they were priced at 17 000 SEK but will double check since I'm popping into the store today...

    They're marked with a 17 000 SEK price tag. Though after speaking with Marcus he said he's not sure he would let the beauties go for that price if someone walked into the store today since he spent 8 months waiting for them...

    Oh, btw, size is 9,5 UK (if someone's interested in making an offer)

    I have spent the last 5 months waiting for my Stingray wholecuts to arrive - Only 4 more weeks to wait apparently!

    I know for sure that after my wait it would take a lot for me to be parted with them, so I can appreciate how he feels :)

    The metal tip on G&G MTO shoes is it allwas the same that should be used? When I give them to my local shoemaker for a new sole should he use the same or shall I order new ones, how does it work?

    interesting questions. the G&G sole is a thing of beauty in general, i would always want them to do the resoling.
