    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Very nice shoes gents. Does anyone know if there will be a G&G trunk show in the US any time this year? I'm very interested in getting a pair, but I'm a little nervous about spending $1k for shoes without at least trying them on. Any ideas?

    i think they should be back ether september or october time, apart from that they should have a few stockist not in the US check the website and see if there are any close to you

    Looks great, I've got my eye on that model as well.

    Did you get the toe plates installed yourself after you got the shoes, or did they come that way from Nick?

    Leffot carries stock on a few models, best to call before making a trip.

    Nick, at Bespoke England, will give you good advice on sizing and will accept returns. I had him send me two different size shoes in order to choose the correct size. The downside is the cost of the return shipping.

    Thanks woe [​IMG]

    I asked Nick to put in the steel toe plates for extra cost - It's great as they made it flushed to the sole! You could also substitute for brass nails

    +eleventybillion! Nick has been great to me and answered all my annoying questions [​IMG]
    Also, can't forget the members here specially luk-cha (Gavin) as he directed me to a local-to-me shop that carries similar brands

    I was hesitant at first but when they arrived they look soooo much better in person! These are my first monks and I'm in [​IMG]

    Hi Jim,

    Yes it is Green Suede. G&G are offering more colours to their collection including suedes and some grain leathers. I will be updating the MTO page next week with more colours.
