    Excuse the amateur-hour photography and the lack of natural light.

    I don't like sophisticated monks.

    I'm betting you really hate the Jesuits then. [​IMG]

    Sorry - What I meant was - Please tell us the story of how you obtained these shoes, from start to finish - Did you visit him? Was it bespoke? How long did it take from start to finish?, Cost? Things like that.. [​IMG]

    From another post of his in the $300 vs $1000 shoe thread:

    Rimshot worthy. Definitely. Well, not hate; I just don't like them.

    That's about the long and short of it - somehow I think the fact it isn't bespoke will disappoint some, but will also make some happy. [​IMG]

    That said, I did get Hidetaka Fukaya's details from the salesman, and will be making a visit to the man himself later on in the year, where I hope to make myself a few pairs of actual bespoke shoes.

    Feel free to discuss these [​IMG]

    John Lobb Redmire - 7000 last

    The pictures don't really do justice to the effect of direct sunlight on these beauties.

    I couldn't wait to wear them so these pictures show some slight creasing from the first couple of wears \t[​IMG]

    Thanks - just 2 more questions if you dont mind - price, and fit? Example, if you are typically a US 10, does it fit true?

    HA! Maybe ugly shoes are like ugly women, they just try harder. Actually I'm a fan (NOT surprising, i'm sure). You KNOW I'd rock these all day long!

    You never fail to deliver words of praise whenever somebody posts super ugly "unique" or "crazy" shoes. That is of course when you aren't posting them yourself. Shine on you crazy diamond.

    Around or just under 1,000 USD if my calculations are correct. Some models in the line are slightly cheaper, some slightly more expensive [give or take fifty dollars].

    As for the fit [where my own feet are concerned], the shoe is just about slightly [and I do mean slightly - a few millimeters around the widest part] wider than the same size in a G&G TG73. I hope this helps.

    Thanks for sharing the info, and the pics of those wonderful shoes. Enjoy them!

    [​IMG] Love the shoes but I can't believe no one has commented on the rug. I hope Vox is okay. He is missed.

    Back to the shoe at hand, so to speak. I'm not a monk fan and I like these a lot. I guess what you call "sophisticated" appeals to me in this case. To each his own. [​IMG]

    Makes sense. I don't think these are overly affected, like the Chapel, which I really don't like. I am a monk fan and like them simple and single.

    Ah, I see you belong to the "Tintin" school of monk strap philosophy.
    In which case you won't approve of my recent purchases. I think I'm becoming a prima donna lately. [​IMG]
