The best part is that they are not available in my size. They are gorgeous. Amazing make ups yet once again

The Kingsleys have exceeded my expectations. Very happy. Great value!

E-mail sent for an MTO!

Great work guys.
Love the Tarjno leather - any chance of putting the Kingsley with storm welt/danite on tarjno leather on the MTO page?

You mean GTMO? Yes, if there's enough intrest.

Have been wearing these Iriwins for a few weeks now. Virtually no break-in needed and the Tärnsjö seems like a nice low-maintenance leather. The double sole keeps them winter-ready rugged but they don't look clunky on the foot. I'm planning on getting a ton of use out of these over the next few months :fistbump:

Hi shoe fiends,

Just received some lovely cordovans from L&T, but I was concerned about some odd creasing on the inner vamp of the left shoe. I reached out to Olof and Patrik, but was told that nothing was wrong. I've been on these forums for a while, and feel like the creasing you see on the top shoe isn't to be expected from cordovan--it strikes me as a flaw. I wore the shoes twice for partial days.

I'm concerned about the three parallel creases/bubbling you see in the upper yellow box, which are not replicated in the lower yellow box. I know that all shoes crease, I'm not a total fool. But these creases don't match any of the shell photos I've seen posted here or elsewhere--it's much more about the creasing around the roll (which I expect and welcome)

I realize that posting a service question here is probably somewhat out of the ordinary, but I felt that my concerns were ignored or thrust aside. The shoes are not cheap (for me, anyway), and I'd value anyone's feedback that you choose to share. Please feel free to DM me with your thoughts.

Apologies to the thread for bringing this up, but I was taken aback by the dismissive response from Skoak. I'm only a first time purchaser from the store, but have second hand L&T shoes that I've loved.

IMO this isn't something I'd worry about. Sometimes shell creases like this given how your feet fit in the shoe/boot. Too late for these, but some people use the "pen/pencil method" to make sure the creases in their shell are where they want them: https://shoegazing.com/2016/03/20/the-tip-place-the-creases/

They look good. Embrace the rolls, your shoes will have character and it isn’t anything to worry about IMO.

These look fine. I have a number of shell cordovan shoes that look like this after a few wears.
