    I had this problem with my Belgraves esp on the left heel but it corrected itself after a few weeks wear(around the house). Very nice shoes btw, look well.

    I've been looking for a pair of Lowndes (benchgrade, last 348?), in size UK6. I'm in the USA... can anyone let me know where I purchase one without waiting 8 weeks for them to come and without paying a premium?

    I've never done proxy before. Where would I look for people willing to proxy?

    What advantage would there be to using a proxy? Can't you get as good a price as a proxy could simply by ringing up the store and placing an order? Why complicate things?

    Too late... I picked up all the UK 6 :) I recommend e-mailing the UK stores. I have ordered from them a couple of times and if they do not have a UK 6 in stock, they can call other stores and get them. The thing is you have to pay for shipping (which was 30 pounds I think when I purchased my Somervilles a month or so ago) and risk duty fees, but it is probably the best way to get our sizes.

    I have also pre-ordered from Pediwear for typical stock styles. You are correct that the wait can last months but if you are not in a rush, they have great customer service and free shipping.

    Let me know if you have any C&J you want to unload :smarmy:

    Thanks! Actually have too many walnut shoes and thinking of using dark brown cream (instead of neutral creams) and hopefully after a couple of years end up with a nice dark brown color...

    Or I could always pick up a pair of Finsbury! :slayer:

    I had my Northcote for one year and use them on regular basics but i have shoes i wear more often during winter. When i came home yesterday and took them off i noticed that the sole was a bit loose in the front of the right shoe. I was surprised to see this because i´m not a guy who wears out my shoes. I had sneakers when i was younger that i had everyday in school for several years... Anyway, below is also pics of one of the shoes i use very often, Loake Pimlico, and this shoe is two years old.

    Is this "normal" or should i go back to the store with them?

    Looks like the stitching came off the toe portion... Interesting. At least it might not be a major job for a competent cobbler.
