My first pair of shoes from Nick at bespoke-england, and I have to say it`s been well worth the wait. Nick has gone beyond every metric you can imagine, and has excelled at all details and communication. Thanks Nick.
Barclay with wensum sole...
And Nick is super! He helped me take care of something that had nothing to do with his business.
Very very nice, looks like an ideal all weather shoes. Are those 360 welt? Wensom sole doesn't look as 'rigid' as Dainite.....
Nutcracker, I wanted a pair that is exactly that - that I can use in the rain and be `tougher` than leather. I did not want a country look, so avoided dainite. From the top and side, you cannot notice they are not leather. I`ve found with the recent technological advances in rubber that the thickness has little to do with wearability of the rubber - in fact my RM Williams soles are good after 10+ years of abuse, and are the same thickness as leather. It seems that these wensum soles are similar, but will update as time passes. Yes, these are 360 stitched.
Congrats on your shoes. Just in time for the rainy season (in Japan)
Yeah, the top/side/profile view is much more important than the bottom view. From the side I can't notice they are rubber either
That's an awesome pair of shoes!!!
no GG shoes at all showing up on the barneys site right now.
Not even worn, but I got out my light tan kiwi and dark brown cream and gave them a polish! The spit and polish on the high quality leather really brings out the best...
ZOMG TACOBENDER FOUND ME A PAIR IN MY SIZE!!!!
Glad to be of service.
Daizawaga - those are immaculate well done.
Tacobender is amazing.
