    G&G Bespoke Sole repair in Japan

    Documents a sole replacement job of a G&G Bespoke (not mine). Done by RESH in Tokyo

    [​IMG]
    G&G Bespoke. Personally, I would have sent it back to the UK

    [​IMG]
    The owner asked for the soles to be replaced.

    Gutted heel

    Taking apart

    Recreating a G&G sole (but with J.R. soles)

    [​IMG]
    Waists are hand stitched

    [​IMG]
    Completed

    [​IMG]
    Definitely not G&G Bespoke waist, but they did their best

    [​IMG]

    The whole thing including rubber toes and heels, cost ¥24,990 ($250 USD)

    RESH is my cobbler to go in Tokyo. They're service is blazing fast (30min wait for a heel replacement or a toe steel attachment)
    Though I'm not sure how long this took for them

    I actually think the Polo Suede Shoes are available on the website anyway. Some arent available for 3 months but still on there for ordering.

    Except us folks that don't fit one of the listed sizes. Damnit.

    Look just look how evenly that sole has worn out. The beauty of bespoke shoes. On the other hand was it really necessary necessary to recraft these? it seems these had a lot of life left in them.
