I think it's right next to the old Mandarin Oriental. IFC Mall's Lane Crawford carry JL as well. For $500-700, your other possibility is Tassels at the bottom of Wyndham St. (http://tassels.com.hk/) or the various MTO folks in HK like Zee's. Oh, and also JM Weston in the IFC as well.

Their shop are located at G/F of Mandarin, just oppsite of Prince's building. You can also found it in Lane Carwford.

Around 8k-12k HKD.

You won't get Lobbs for that in HK, they were about 12000HKD and not on sale at Lane Crawford at the weekend. I don't know if they'll be on sale in their own boutique or at the airport, but it seems unlikely. For your price range hit the sales at LC and Seibu, you'll find Santonis for that price, and other 'lesser' brands for less. JM Weston is pricey too, and I didn't see them on sale at the IFC.

they were apparently up to 60% off during the cash sale frenzy at LC a few weeks back. Lobbs at ~5000 hkd and less.
Or at least that's what my friend told me...................on the last day of the sale no less.

I will check out IFC2 and LC and report shoe sales tomorrow.

I don't know much about high quality shoes (only just started to pay attention to them), so maybe someone else with a better memory of names might do the same!

I'm loving the shops here... I havent been here for a few years. Landmark is flipping amazing

Where is Zee's and how long do they take to make shoes?

LC Pacific Place has the Santoni Limited Editions on sale!!! These were the only Santoni's NOT to be discounted last year. I guess times are getting tough. I think they were about HKD5,000 down from HK$8,500 from memory. Which is not a bad price considering the goodyear construction and unique finish of the Santoni limited edition.

I am not sure if that is true. I have yet to see Lobbs on sale anywhere but at the JL store at the Mandarin Oriental, and even then the selection is limited. If they were, good for those who scored the bargain.
I must be out of the sales loop.

Same with JM Weston, the sale models are normally stuff they can't move. Weston's retail for HK$8,900. For the price of Weston, I'd rather get G&G's given the current exchange rate, or about HK$6,500 with a mahogany shoe tree to boot (no pun intended).

Are you serious? It is located at the sushi section of GrEAT Food Hall between the freshwater yabbies and seaweed salad. Alternatively, dial the concierge service on your Vertu.
