    I bought a pair of John Lobb Newland monkstrap shoes on eBay a while ago. They never quite fit me, so now I've decided to sell them on B&S. While taking pictures, I noticed the soles were different than the two other pairs of Lobbs I have. Anyway, has anyone seen these soles before? Are these signs of a resole, or what I'm really hoping isn't the case, counterfeit?

    Those are real. That's their standard sole.

    You should look it up next time: Link

    What originally concerned me was after checking the Shoe Pictorial Index and the pic for black Newlands, pic, has the black/light tan sole I was more familiar with; also, the stitching of the logo patch on the yellow bags is uneven.

    Thanks for confirmation.

    The Newlands are from the Prestige line which has the two-toned sole. Yours have the standard sole.

    What does that sticker on the sole mean? I have that on my C&J Belgraves as well.
