    Fritzle brings up a point that reminds me of a question I've been meaning to ask: do many of you guys wear orthotics in your shoes? I've worn orthotics in my dress shoes for the past 15 years, which has created a whole new universe of comfort in and variety of the shoes I wear.

    Do you have a pair of orthotics for every shoe?

    No, I just switch them from shoe to shoe. Since I put in shoe trees, I have to take them out anyway . . . Sorry for hijacking this thread.

    Here's the information on them:

    The great thing about this orthotic is that you can wear them in dress shoes, but also put them underneath the athletic shoe insole and play sports, run, whatever in them.


    Thanks for the link. Any idea if they take orders directly or which online shops stock them

    Funny, Michael ay329's avatar, above, brings tears to mine. Just different, I guess.

    Where can you get hold of shoes from Demeter & Halmos? Over the internet?

    http://www.demeter-halmos.com/webgalery/index.html They don't have an online store and unsure about RTW stock availability. My 3 orders have all been MTO, via e-mail communications and PayPal payment. They make classic Central European designs using traditional and progressive (squared & chiseled) lasts. See D&H as another option from Budapest...not a Vass alternative.

    can you describe how well made these are? specifically, do they have a closed channeled sole? I'm tossing up between the carmina monks at the armoury or the AS exclusive at A Fine Pair of Shoes. O also are those lasted shoe trees and did the shoes come with them? thanks!
