So, I can get these for 700 - what do you think?

Looks like a possible scuff on the toe..

There's some creasing in the vamp, as you can see.. which doesn't bother me too much as it is inevitable after I wear the shoe for a month or so, right? Anything else? Of course, retail on this shoe is like 13-1400.

That's what I thought - I plan on getting a blue this year.

Love the blues... he's my 7th Dane. I also have a black dog out of the same pair breeding from last year. Last year I lost 2, a harl bitch and a blue dog, 12 and 11 years old respectively.

I just got a pair in London a few days ago for 770GBP with trees. I think I got about 140USD back in the form of a VAT refund (or they would have changed 50GBP to ship them and I wouldn't have had to pay the VAT refund adminstrative fee bulls...) Are they worth it, probably not but they made a good souvenir. They're definately worth $700 though! The ones at the Jermyn St store were slightly creased like that. I imagine they're all tried on a few times and only bought once someone forgets to ask the price.

Fit wise I'm a pretty true 10.5D. The 10E in Lobbs 7000 last fits me well as do 9.5E in Lobb's loafers.

Awesome - hopefully they work out.


By the way, nice to see another DC metro'er.. I'm in Fairfax.


Anyone know where I could get a 7000 last pair of shoe trees? I emailed JL; haven't yet received a response.
