I don't think you will be disappointed especially with the lower risk of free shipping.  

Thanks for that vote of confidence D.


I really appreciate the honestly, Justin. I definitely agree with your opinion on Carmina, I would pay C&J prices for them with no gripes. Your prices seem very fair for what you offer and the free shipping is a huge bonus. Thanks for the reply.

It's my pleasure.

If you do order, I hope that you will enjoy them!

My pleasure. Thanks as always for your support in the blog.
"As good as Carmina" is up for debate, particularly as I feel that Carmina undervalue their own shoes, by a lot. They could easily sell for +£450 and they would still be worth it. We have different traits that make us good. They definitely have more hand techniques (fudge wheel on the welt, nails on the toe etc) than my own do but I do think that my own shoes are a good price for what you get. Just want to be honest.
Interesting, so prices are similar I take it between yours and Carmina? So I guess one could argue yours are over-priced rather than theirs being under-priced.

I can tell you one thing that isn't debatable...the fact that you're a dick!

We all know that you don't like my Spanish made shoes, but please understand that we all don't care either...

Feel free to keep posting but I will say it now that if it continues on this path I will simply refrain from answering

Maybe @Beach Bum is just upset you don't carry flip flops?

I just realized that you were the person that apologized earlier yet you take stabs at me still.

Do you think Santoni's are overpriced? Or Crockett & Jones? Or any of the Italian brands that you seem to love??

To answer your question on public forum one can ague what he wishes but that does not make him right....

Just wanted to let you all know that this is the last week to receive free shipping on jfitzpatrickfootwear.com -- if any of you are at all interested in the shoes, now would be your chance to take a stab at them.....I will leave below some pics to show you what is new and interesting

Sincerely,

Justin

Hey Justin,

I placed an order last night but my card rejected the security protocol and I got a call saying my online transactions would be placed on hold. I missed out on the free shipping as a result :( Any chance it could be extended? I've sorted it out and can go throuh Paypal and make it work. Shipping is bit of a deal breaker for me since I'm in Canada.

thanks for the consideration, and I totally understand if you want to respect the cutoff point!

I will indeed honor the free shipping for you.

Please email me at [email protected] and we can transact a direct invoice via Paypal

Thanks for your interest and support

Nice shoes, love the loafers and balmoral boots. Been looking for tassel loafers like that without MTO markup. Too bad size 7 US/6 UK feet are out of luck as usual :(

Big fan of Justin. The cleaning products are great. The service impeccable. He will always take the time to answer your questions - no matter how silly they are or whether or not you are a customer.

My only issue is that I have a big and wide foot - as well as wearing orthotics. I don't think there will ever be a chance of getting a pair of those wonderful shoes in my size.
