    Hi patliean,

    apologies, just recognized your comment today.

    No worries, something went totally wrong here. The Milano Captoe AC will stay alive. I have to check this with our IT-guys.

    Hi Guys:

    Thanks for joining Styleforum Mr. D.

    I am the proud owner of a pair of Dinkerlacker/Apollo shoes which as you know, are many years old. They fit like a glove and are extremely comfortable.

    On of the things which North Americans have a little difficulty in understanding is that while Dinkerlackers look heavy and substantial in photographs they are actually quite understated and elegant in person. Let's hope we all get more acquainted with your shoes.

    Do you have a system in place for repair and restoration? Please let me know.

    Thanks for your kind words, Mr. kilowatts.

    Dinkelacker/Apollo ... this really is a long long time ago. Your shoes should be at least 30 years old (and yes, i´d like to see a picture of them here).

    Please have a look at the good old times when Dinkelacker/Apollo placed a shoemaker in a store window of a shoe store in the pedestrian area of Munich. ;)

    Hi Kilowatts,

    thanks for the friendly words. We actually have a repair shop in Germany for Heinrich Dinkelacker. It's our shoemaker in Bietigheim who takes care of this. For the moment he is only accessible via our German site: http://www.heinrich-dinkelacker.de/reparatur/

    We're working on a solution for the american market and will post the information as soon as possible.

    It's true that some Dinkelacker seem heavy and that's not a bad thing. You will never have the same feeling of stability as in a Rio or Buda last. But if you prefer a lighter design there are always our elegant lasts as the Luzern or Milano. I'm glad that you're also the opinion that they look quite elegant in person.

    Greetings from Berlin,

    Veit

    That's a nice example of our Luzern last. Perfect for the slimmer foot with enough space for the instep.

    Hi Guys:

    Thanks for the info Mr. D. I look forward to hearing about future plans for authentic repair. I'll get on with taking pictures of my shoes and post them as soon as I can.

    Could you tell me the model number of your shoe?

    Sure. Where would I look?

    The photograph in your avatar, was he an actor in the move Metropolis?

    Normally our shoemaker writes down the product number in the inside of the shoe. You usually find a four digit number on the side where your ankles would touch, if you put your feet close together.

    That's an interesting guess. The actor in Metropolis was called Gustav Fröhlich. My avatar is Willy Fritsch however. Actor and singer around the same time.

    I thought you might be interested in a 'live picture' of our newest model, the Wien Plain BD.

    Hi Guys:

    The numbers on the inside of the shoes are:
    10-3681
    I hope that helps.

    Nice loafers.

    Thanks kilowatts, that's an old last of ours. I will ask our Dinkelacker veterans about the name.
