    Lol, not so good with the law, eh? No one here has infringed on any copyrights they may have. But feel free to screen print whatever you like. My attorney has told me he's been bored lately.

    To start with there is a big difference if you report something from experience or just foul mouth a company clearly with the aim of causing damage to their business. Second to copy and paste an image from their site and use it in a PUBLIC forum is copyright infringement if you do not have their permission.
    I do hope they'll take you to the cleaners. Now could someone let me know where the unsubscribe button is? I do not wish to be associated with such morons by being a member in the same forum

    This response is my case in point - guess it must be difficult to get your point across when your IQ is in the low two digit range and one has to revert to four letter words - very civilized

    This thread is full of laughs...

    I thought at first is was bespoke shoes for a man who weighed 300 pounds, so I clicked in to see what that could be about. I was disappointed to find out it was not about finding some sturdy footwear.

    I think this guy was spamming to try to drum up some business only to find it go south. Threats of a copyright claim made me laugh.

    From what I've heard, Adler Shoes is doing well and have produced some very fine shoes for their customers. One of those is a friend of mine. Says they're the best shoes he's ever had.

    No doubt you've gone off to shill some other forum in the months since this post so won't be reading my reply, but I'm pretty sure the usage of the image in this thread would be covered under fair use, you clueless idiot.

    I'm 65 and live in New York. Maybe not your typical member. But a real person with no ax to grind.

    I just ordered a pair of shoes from Adler. With shipping the cost is $510. That was after reading all these posts. Why?

    While there's no credible internet reviews there are no negative ones either. Perhaps they haven't had many sales yet. Internet companies are often run out of a bedroom (as may be this forum), yet that of itself doesn't impact service. Many Ebay and Amazon vendors do a good job.

    I had some questions so I called. I got a call back about an hour later and had a long discussion with the representative (owner?). When I placed my order I used Paypal, which has a good buyer protection plan. I placed the order on Thursday and got the measuring kit on Monday, from Germany. The address is Adler Shoes Germany, Carl-Heydemann-Ring 96, H&V Sven Nabers, Stralsund, 18437, Germany.

    I expect to get my shoes in about 2 months, and will share my experience with anyone who asks.

    This may be a forum for Metrosexuals. Personally, I think comfort is the most important thing in shoes. I have bad feet. I'm built more like a hockey player than a biker or marathoner, and my feet have taken a beating over the years. My alternatives were Mephistos, Allen Edmonds, sneakers or orthopedic shoes. Or custom made shoes that cost 2000-3000 per pair. These seem a no-brainer.

    They will not be signed by the designer. Hopefully they will be well made. One thing I learned is that shoes are made from the inside out. The man who called me mentioned an order for some very stylish Italian type shoes ordered by a customer with short, wide feet. To accommodate the the foot in that style, the shoes would have to be 17 inches long!

    Given the constraints of the shape of your foot, any style can be made or copied. (I think the guy said a Blucher is a Blucher, an Oxford is an Oxford). The website is very poor and probably the shoes pictured are just examples of those they can make, not all they are capable of, or things they have designed. I don't know if they are violating patent law, although I doubt it. Even if they are, that generally doesn't affect the purchaser.

    I think these are properly called custom made, rather than made to order. Made to order, such as Hong Kong suits, involve taking many measurements. The suits are then made by taking (for example) 34 inch left sleeve and a 35 inch right sleeve, etc. In shoes I guess the same thing might be matching a 10D right with a 10.5E left. Some companies will do this. In contrast, here they take a mold of your foot and make the shoe around it. Somewhat similar to ski boots, but there the outside is pre-determined.

    Anyway, I'll let you know if I wind up getting screwed, but I don't think I will.

    Hello pstoehr,

    I'm from Germany and I was looking around the internet for experience with adlershoes because I'm planning to order some for myself.
    I came over your entry and would like to ask if you have got your shoes already and if so, how is the quality and the design?

    Thanks in advance,
    Searcher

    Cool story, but why are you comfortable buying from a far away place, over the internet, that has no reviews to speak of? What gave you such comfort??

    :confused:

    I have had very good experience with Adler-Shoes ….

    … following a thorough internet research, reading bulletin boards and blogs, I came across this company and ordered a pair of shoes.
    I received a kit with which I bandaged my feet, took a cast and sent it back – free of charge.
    Based on this cast, the company produced my personal last. For further orders all I need to do is send them my last number.


    On to quality: The fit is great; the leather used for the shoe, as well.
    You hardly feel the shoes at all. Those of you who are running around all day in business shoes know what I am talking about.


    What I liked best: Right after delivery of my shoes I had to place a claim (the sole of the heel had a defect) and e-mailed to the distribution
    partner. On the very same day I received a response including a cost-free UPS parcel label to be printed out.
    So I sent back the shoes; two weeks later they were back and this time everything was perfect.


    In my opinion, the quality of a company shows best in cases of claims and here all I can say is: Kudos!
    Very good solution, I am extremely happy and will definitely continue to order shoes made to measure at Adler-Shoes.

    So - any new news on this site, or the shoes that they produce?

    I wear a size 16, so my only real options are AE - or going broke going bespoke. My only issue with AE is the very limited number of choices available, so when I found the Adler Shoes site I was interested to find out what kind of quality they are putting out.

    Does anyone have any recent experience with them? Any pics to post of the shoes they produce? How 'true to fit' were they?
