    Andrew, what kind of money are we talking and do you pay upfront?

    Hey Ed...

    From what i've heard, he will be pricing himself slightly below what EG charged for his services so I would expect to pay something slightly south of$3k (which would include shoe trees). The deposit would traditionally be half.

    Thanks, slightly south sounds like Virginia to me, I need them to go as far south as Argentina!

    Andrew's figures are right, and the first pair of shoes will take about 9 months to a year to complete. But it's pretty cool to have 1 of only about 100 pairs made a year.

    I expect the price to be 1,400 GBP, which includes trees. If I recall correctly, EG was 1,550, and Tony said he was going to charge 10% less.

    So much for 10% less. Unless EG's final price was more like 1,700, which I do not recall.
