    glad to clear that up!

    i took those at work. i had the office to myself, so i used the cannon dslr and light-box i use for work stuff. most of my pics are done with the camera + app for iphone, and sometimes ill bring the dslr home for SF pics, but i wanted to try it in the light box for fun. i dont think i would actually buy a light-box and make a setup, just for SF pics. but, you never know.

    congrats on the new camera!

    Was definitely a great time as Vegas always is for me. I learned quite a bit from Nick and was awesome to handle some shoes up close that I've always been curious about, especially the Stingrays. I know Nick made a few good contacts already by the time I had stopped by so I hope the trip ends up being lucrative for him.

    The hall for the shoe booths alone was massive, but I can easily say from all the booths I passed on the way to Nick and back out that he had easily the finest shoes on display there. I just wish I had had time to stop by the Mandalay to check out the Men's Clothing vendors...maybe next year.

    Now I'm anxiously awaiting Nick to get back home to the UK and get me an update on my pair on order. :)

    My shoes originally came with a cut on the vamp of the right shoes, so I emailed Nick, and we came to an agreement we are both happy with promptly.

    And I did a bit of repair work and sanding and repolishing, which pretty much hid the mark, though on close inspection, it is still visible.

    I just get HAF soles, which I believe are equally frowned upon :)

    Wear in good Heath Wurger. Can you give the outsole measurements. Curious how they stack up to the TG73. Thanks!

    Likely verboten in SF but I put Vibram on all my shoes too. And taps - heel and toe. Boom.

    Not to worry, topy only covers the front of me sole, plenty of leather left on the waist to show fiddle back.

    a decent compromise. i have considered putting topy on my GGs after the soles get worn a bit and looked scratched up anyways. i just might some day.

    Stitchy - for your consideration (I only have these pics handy of my Corthays but I did the same with my G&Gs):

    1. First, a pic of what the Corthay soles look like with Vibram installed across most of the sole. I leave part of the waist bare, since it doesn't make contact with the pavement anyway in most instances. I also don't feel the need to pay extra to put some on the sole, since I have taps installed for that.

    This pair of Corthay "Casanovas" (that's what they are called nowadays) is about a year old and I've worn them about once every two weeks, walking 1.5 miles per wear in the rough streets of NYC. I had the taps replaced once, and the Vibram is still pretty much intact.

    2. You might be wondering - eh, those look like horse shoes from the bottom. But you really can't see them.
