    Will the mold tend to come back? Did you do anything to kill it? Does this happen frequently?

    So many questions............................:embar:

    Looks good, how much did the resoling set you back? And why did you choose to have it done by a third party?

    Tom, please tell me you don't use Bexley's blob-like shoe trees on Gaziano&Girling shoes.

    Kokos Shoes London. I live in Wales, all arranged by phone and then sent over to do the job.
    Full long sole and toe taps set me back less than a third of what the refurbishment at the mothership would have cost.
    See above ... couldn't justify spending half the price of a new pair of G&G's.
