    I do believe (I know it only from hearsay), the very first collection of JLP ready-to-wear shoes were manufactured by Crockett & Jones. According to Alan Flusser: they then test-marketed a limited collection of models out of the Hermes store in Paris.

    Thereafter the production got moved to EG and the collection officially launched in 1986. It's possible, these particular shoes were made by C&J. That might account for some of the differences to JLP shoes as we know them.

    I very much resect your views, but I've owned Lobb by C&J shoes and the pair linked are not comparable in any way. The fake Lobbs are just that - a pair of poorly constructed, probably Blake welted shoes which have had the name of a high-end brand added to them. I'm still curious as to the reason - a fake Rolex is a status symbol but how many people would see those shoes on someone's feet and assume them to be wealthy?

    I think you are assuming that the potential purchaser knows that they are fake. What I think is going on here is that the seller is trying to make a quick dollar and sell something that a potential buyer thinks is real - regardless of the perception of other people. With a Rolex it is usually pretty safe to assume both parties know it is a fake and the buyer is willing to wear a fake.
