Wore my laurelhursts yesterday....great shoe at a pretty awesome price.
This is an amazing story of pursuing a dream and never giving up. Continued success.
Great thread! I've been visiting Justin's blog the last months and I've learned tons of stuff and of fine taste for shoes from Justin's passion and love for details.
I was told that JF's shoes are made in China by Meermin. True?
They're made in Spain.
Nope, they are made in Spain
Yes, actually Justin himself mentioned his Spanish Artisan located in Almansa (Albacete, Spain), hometown of some of the best and finest Spanish shoemakers (Berwick, Cordwainer, Pertini, Maganni, John Spencer, Sendra and others). I did stop there weeks ago getting jewels at bargain prices in some of the open outlets
top notch blog!
How comes I only noticed this thread now?
Thank you a lot for sharing unbelragazzo!
Justin is a great guy that has answered immediately, friendly and very helpful to several of my emails.
While he neither offers shoes in my size nor to my taste, I wish him greatest of luck with his young family and business.
I learned about his shoe care products to be rebranded Saphir products.
So if in the future I run out of renovateur I will definitely give Justin some, if very small so, business.
They're not Saphir, they're LCA
Oh, has he changed the supplier?
When I asked him about the mink oil renovator several month ago he told me it was renovateur.
LCA is owned by the same parent company as Saphir and they're very similar. But pretty much all private label stuff is LCA
I see, my bad, thanks for clarifying.
