    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.

    guys, I bought 5 pair of G&G's during the Barneys sale, love them but I have a problem on most of them; while they fit I must have a weird shaped foot in that the right top of the right shoe digs into my nerve just below the ankle bone. It is incredibly painful, I have bought a single heal insole which has fixed the problem. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem and also if there is a more elegant solution to this? I'm afraid if I buy some G&G insoles the shoe would be too tight.

    I guess you just have to tie the shoelaces looser.

    I have a similar problem with the nerve too. Double monk with the elastic band seem to be just perfect.

    You know this could be an issue of balance...if your foot tends to roll outward, for instance, or if the shoe itself tends to roll inward. It could also be simply a matter of too high a lateral topline.

    My Sinatras (TG73) on their maiden voyage. Still have not mastered the art of the Spoo pic; such is life I suppose. Thanks to Nick at Bespoke England for his wonderful service.

    Sinatras are such nice shoes. They really show how nice that last is IMO.

    Depends on your trip to London but worst case less than 9 months if the first fitting went well.

    Good to know. That is incredible. I know its 9 months from now but I cant wait to see! I have been digging the dovers but EG doesnt seem to fit my foot as well as I was hoping for. GG fits a little better and TG73 is the perfect last IMO for the Hoves.
