It will be days before those shoes see a foot.............
And then 9 months later...............
Hmm so even the Deco range's shoe tree is spring loaded instead of hinged.
too be honest there is not much defference i feel between the 2 other that weight
Trunk show starting in New York, Wednesday at Leffot, then Thursday and Friday at the Benjamin Hotel in Midtown.
whihc one will you be going too? please take pictures TG said there will be some different shoes on show this time
I am no expert but most bespoke shoes uses lasted/hinged trees for some reason.
looks better - but having both hinge and spring loaded both from G&G i really notice no difference as they are both lasted
hinged is more sophisticated for us old schoolers
no offense, at this price point, i expect this to be given.
Ah ha! Gold! Black gold!
Deco Black looks really great. Purple-blueish in those pics.. might mess up my decision on racing green Vs Midnight Blue on Deco Cooper
great, i mean super sexy, looking shoes mang! somehow i missed your post last night. enjoy em broham.
i have only had spring loaded, but i would imagine the potential for a spring to go bad is greater than the chance of the hinge going bad. as well once a spring pops you are pretty much SOL, where as when a hinge come loose you can tighten it. small differences, but i could see the reason why at such a price point one would want the best possible options.
hinged is purtier n more old school as Gerd says but sprung is better 1. applies more stretching force = good esp for cordo 2. easier to insert n less likely to damage top of counter
if its really that beneficial, why do most bespoke shoe makers uses hinged trees? just curious.
tradition - my guess
From the G&G trunk show at Leffot...
