    i'm curious about the insurance.

    where do u get insurance for shoes--is it some kind of a comprehensive property insurance? under what circumstances would you be covered--fire? theft? mugging by SF members?

    Yup, and I save receipts else who'd believe me.[​IMG]

    Please also let me know if you guys prefer the photo with the flash, better detail, real color distorted or no flash with less detail and truer color.

    Do you remember that three-headed dog form the first Harry Potter movie? I have his big brother guarding my shoe closet.[​IMG]

    Thanks GS, it's good to be back in the fold.

    VR...Lloyd's turned me down after they got so badly burned on the Lachey/Simpson marriage.[​IMG]

    Andrew, where did you get the Clevelands? Shyam does not show them on his site. Were they an ebay purchase or did you find a German source [​IMG]

    Also, what last are they on?


    Nothing so insidious Ed... though the Clevelands were not easy to obtain. As you mentioned, Plal and Pediwear don't carry them. I tried the C&J boutiques in London and Paris and no luck there either. I finally tracked them down on this French shoe store's website:

    http://www.la-botte.com/4DCGI/voir_u...0Jones/Homme/1

    And the rest is history. Though they did get lost in the mail and took over 6 weeks to finally arrive.[​IMG]

    Edit: Sorry I forgot to answer your question re: the last. They are on the 337.

    Andrew,

    You are a better man than me. I have a tough time now paying retail prices for shoes given PLAL, VirtualClothesHorse, ebay etc. They are very nice though and definitely worth it but that extra three bills over PLAL's price is a hurdle that I just can overcome [​IMG]

    These were definitely on the pricey side Ed, no doubt. But I did get the VAT taken off and I really couldn't find anything locally that move me.

    I thought the Clevelands were on the 350?

    Great shoes by the way, and good to see you back. [​IMG]

    Me three - when I was in Paris I was told that they (and a couple of other pairs) were on the 350.

    The 348 is apparently already passe in Paris...

    Yikes! I'll have to check the box/shoe. I could have sworn it said 337, but it sounds like I'm mistaken.[​IMG]

    I also have the Balmuir II which is on the 350 as is the Portman.
