For Sale: Handmade Goodyear welted shoes, these are hand made to order by a mom-pop shop I've worked with several times in China.

Details: I have a really good source for hand-made Goodyear welted shoes here in China. I bought a few of them myself and others on StyleForum and the quality is really really good for the price, I'd say it's about similar with what you expect from typical American lower-end handmade brands like Allan Edmonds. Goodyear welted, cork bedding, channeled soles, etc.

But these are ridiculously cheaper. I thought you guys on Styleforvm might be interested in trying out a few pairs. They're made by a local mom and pop shop in Beijing that I'm really good friends with, who I only discovered after learning about all the benefits of Goodyear shoes from you guys on the SF and finding that they use the same craftsmanship.

Price & Shipping: $165 including shipping via Registered Airmail w/ tracking. Approximately 10-15 days for shipping. Express shipping is about $45 more and takes 4-5 days.

Size: Any standard sizing is fine, these are MTO. I can get them made narrow or wide as needed, and best if you can give foot measurements. About 1.5 to 2 weeks time needed to make the shoe.

Style: Basically any style they can make, and with your choice of color. The photos listed are a sample of what they can create... Oxfords, Bluchers/Derbies, Monk / double monks, cap toe, wingtip, longwing, etc. Any standard style is OK.

Materials: Full grain cowhide leather (locally sourced), and leather dye hand applied. Quality is pretty good considering the price.
