Thanks for the feedback. Yes all our GYW shoes are fitted with a special comfort sole that makes them a bit more comfy than what you'd normally find in GYW shoes.
Can you tell us a bit more about the construction? It feels a bit like a poron insole. Is there a full leather insole below it too?

I agree that it is very comfy. Also feels warmer than regular leather insoles in my experience when I walked outside today in a pair of Clark boots.

Managed to get me a pair of Kingsleys in black Utah/suede. Since it is my first time handling Utah I was wondering how do people care for their Utah leather? Regular shoe cream? Bick4? Educate me please.

The same size.

Bick4 is enough.

Dear friends and fellow shoe nerds,

February 19th 2022 marks the end of an era. After almost ten years as a brick an mortar store, we are converting to an online only store. Of course the pandemic has fueled this change, but even before the pandemic we saw a decline in demand for premium grade welted shoes so the change would have come sooner or later. It's just not possible to sustain a large store in such a premium location in Stockholm, where sadly more and more people are just trying to make a bargain. Of course, running a dress shoe store in a country where even bankers and lawyers wear sneakers does not help. ?

So going forward we will focus our goods to cater to fellow shoe connoisseurs and clients who appreciate craftsmanship and sustainability. This means slimming down our range of products and offering more MTO and GMTO goods. In order to cater to this group I will have one of my staff members dedicate themselves to this segment, which I hope will improve service level and professionalism.

We will host a sale in the store on Nybrogatan from Tuesday January 25th until we close the shop. Feel free to pop by and say hello! As of this date there is no online sale planned.

And please remember to support your local #menswear (brick & mortar) retailers, everyone is struggling right now. Take care and let me know if you have any questions! We will continue to be SF forum members and affiliates as long as it continues to be a relevant place for us to have a discussion about quality shoes in general and our products in particular.

Kind regards,
Patrik a.k.a Leaves

StC, EB, L&T mainly as well as all our accessories brands. We might have to let Saphir go as many of their products are flammable and thus we can’t export them hassle free.
