Just discovered this brand on IG like 5 minutes ago so naturally I came hear to read reviews. Man those Louis boots look good and I am the market for a split toe shoe.

Thanks for your review sir. How long did it take to receive your MTOs from the time of ordering till delivery? And was there an upcharge?I have just recieved a pair of Alex MTO from Cobbler Union. I was looking for a pair of black calf longwings that I could use with a suit. I love the look and presence of a pair of gunboats (Church´s Grafton my favourite), but for my taste, they are not the best option with a super 100´s suit, somehow the heft of the gunboats do not match the light nature of a super 100's suit.
So I contact Daniel at Cobbler Union and suggested that their longwings named Alex, that are soled with rubber (similar to Dainite), shoud use leather soles. Inmediatley he informed that my request could be fullfiled by their MTO program so I pulled the trigger. Daniel also suggested using deep red linning and I accepted. Since I have a pair of Francis dub monks I was confident about the outcome.
Well, the shoes arrived and I am very very happy with them, the fit is perfect, the leather is on top, the shape and weight was what I was specting and the red quilted linning is beautiful. They are signed by the man that made them, Migui. I am waiting for the arrival of a pair of Louis boots and will ask for another pair of Alex in brown.
Cobbler Union´s shoes quality is very good, the construction is made with attention to detail, the design is modern but respecting the elegance of a classic shoe; but most importantly, they are nice people to deal with, open to new ideas and who enjoy giving slight twists to their products. Highly recomended.
By the way, I am not related in any way to Cobbler Union, I am a happy a owner of Church's, C&J, Loake, AE, AS, Cheaney who enjoys polishing shoes as a stress therapy.
