    I only saw the PDF list that Nick posted but nothing in my size. Did he post another list? I recall he said there were more coming.

    Have emailed and PM'd :(

    I don't think Nick ever posted any list, that was Nikola who posted a seconds list that someone at GG must have given him.

    As for Nick, he has gone dark for me as well...

    Based on all the photos, he's buried alive in cash.

    I wish I wore a smaller size GG shoe. 12.5 is a nightmare. Nobody stocks it

    I bought a pair of the £500 shoes and they are pristine, absolutely nothing wrong with them at all, certainly firsts. Stock from their website sounds reasonable as they are merging with Nick.

    Dear All,

    Thanks to all those that came out to the sale.

    For those of you that were not able to make it, there is still some good news left.

    Within a week or two's time, G&G will put up their leftover sale stock online for it to be made available for those that are not in England/London area.

    However, you are kindly asked to NOT write/call them up and see what will be there, what the price will be, whether or not they can hold one for you etc. Please understand that just because Dean and Tony or whoever in their company are more accessible than that of most brands are, that the fact remains that sample sales are still very much a "First Come, First Serve Flash Sale" and will be treated as such without any special favors. (and I will purposely not know anything so please do not ask me either)

    When the sale is live, everyone will be made aware, whether it on SF, my blog or through their email list.

    That being, save up your pennies as there are still over 200 pairs left to be had (with a good range of sizes)!

    Sincerely,

    Justin

    ... speaking of the sale, the shoes weren't the only stars of the show - picked up lots of socks too from Timothy Everest.

    The socks were Pantherella - and £5 each was a superb deal.

    BTW - I would love to assume that you're interviewing someone off shot in this picture.

    How'd you guess? :satisfied:

    It was the final interview question - name the make, model and last of the shoes I'm wearing. :lol:

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
