Wow those are some of my favourite shoes - classic lasts and designs with that extravagant French colouration.

How do they create a lighter colored spot on a dark shoe?

Does anyone have Marc Guyot shoes, and particularly, can anyone tell me about these beauties? I'm going to Europe this summer, and plan to start my nice dress shoe collection. I plan to pick up a pair of C&Js and VASS (maybe 2 pairs), then I see these. I really hope i don't drop 2Gs on shoes.

j,
Wasn't there a post by Guyot that had a description in English about that process he is illustrating. What he did to clean the original finish, how he removed some of the black dye, how he did the polishing, etc. The accompanying words really did add to the understanding of the process. Perhaps the post went into cyberspace with the crash?

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
