    On a separate note, does anyone know if Dean or Tony have ever stumbled upon this thread?

    You should post these in the Norgovese thread. I personally would never in a million years wear these - but to appreciate this craftsmanship with this leather - for sure. Ive never seen something like this from G&G. Congrats on a unique piece!

    Those look amazing! What kind of finish did you have them put on the Russia calf? It looks darker and smoother than other Russia calf that I've seen.

    Looks very nice, but not a fan of the braiding near the bottom of the shoe.

    i ddn't ask for any thing, they just how they came but these pictures were taking in crappy light so they are not really as dark

    lasting generally smooths out the grain

    ^ L-C, isn't the Norvegese stitching usually flush against the welt, i.e. is it normal that there appears to be a gap between them like that? In this case, does that stitching actually serve its supposed function or is it just decorative? [​IMG]

    Was going to stop at Leffot this weekend to order two new pairs of lace-ups (brown and black). I am leaning towards the Hayes. I assume the oak bark style sole is pretty standard for what people get. What about last style? Those Hayes in DG70 above look great. Does anyone have any good real life pictures comparing the lasts side by side?

    Thanks!
