    A seller on the bay is listing a large number of Lobbs, which bear the Lobb St. James label. Anyone know the story on these shoes? They are all different sizes, and styles. Lobb St. James doesn't have a RTW line that I am aware of, and only make customized shoes. Are these shoes authentic Lobbs? What could be their source of supply?

    Probably rejected bespoke models.

    Probably pairs from customers that never had the shoes paid in full ...

    I would think that it would be a risky purchase as LSJ makes their shoes customized. Unless you're lucky to get someone with your same foot measurements, the chances of these shoes actually fitting would be astronomical.

    That's the reason why they provided exact measurements and all that. Other than that the shoes are looking custom grade.

    Borghini are having a Black Friday sale; 20% off already good prices. Plenty of EE for those amongst us with club feet.
    Picked up 3 pairs and a silly pair of c&j for a super price!
