Thought that folks might want to know that Bodiley's (www.shoesnorthampton.co.uk) is about to launch a spring special on selected AS Exclusive shoes. As I understand it, they've had a number of Handgrade models made up to an Exclusive range spec (channeled soles, trim waist, etc.) and are offering them at a discount to regular Exclusive prices. I think they've made up about 10 models, including classics such as the Moore (adelaide), Milton (wholecut), Charlton (split toe derby). Flier will be going out to their regular customers today, so start your engines. For those who don't have any experience with AS Exclusive, they are, IMHO, at least at the same quality level as C&J Handgrade, but with better sole treatment and price well below Handgrades. AS always made good, solid English shoes, but have really stepped things up since 2010 when they refocused on the higher end of the market. For those who haven't dealt with Bodiley's, they are a real pleasure to deal with - professional, prompt, flexible, friendly. Sarah will take care of you if you email [email protected]. BTW, Bodiley's also carries C&J, Cheaney and have an own label line made to high specs by Cheaney (strong value for money). Disclaimer - I'm just doing this as a favor to SF and someone who'd like to see Bodiley's get their due, I'm not personally benefiting from this PSA.
