Probably because I do not like trying new things. I was really hope they can create a outlier for price or quality. Like hand welted shoes for $400, otherwise I would just stick with what I know, Yanko, Carmina. I'd rather let other people try them first and listen to their feedbacks, rather than test something I do not know. Switching to a new brand has potential cost, why would I switch if nothing spectacular?
Very understandable. It's the availability of Ridgeway soles and Utah that are appealing to me. One brand you might want to try then is Meccariello new Aeris range. In my mind, they're end-game quality shoes, but for under 400 euros. If you're happy with the brands you know, then maybe no need to try.

SOH's lasts and models are much nicer than Yanko's, in my opinion.

What’s so special about Aeris line? I think AM lasts only fit for people with high insteps like other Italian brands, that’s why I never try them. And that’s the problem of switching to something unknown

Obv fit is king. I have a high instep so works great for me. Aeris is actually his cheapest line, but it doesn't pale in quality to his more expensive stuff imo. The last thing I will say is that it's just very obviously a step up, just like how you hold a pair of Carminas for the first time, it's very obviously better than a pair of Cole Haan

Hi everyone!

I will not go over everything that has been posted here, as it would not be fair to Affiliate Vendors.

In short, yes, I will be an Affiliate soon. I'm working out the details with Fok.

I owe a lot to the forum, and would now like to give back. I hope to have your continued support.

When the Affiliate Thread is up and running, I will do a proper introduction. Until that time, there are plenty of ways to reach me.

Thank you!
Tom

Hi Gents,

I just broke into “shore society” with a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo’s Oxfords, in pursuit of new pair of shoes I am considering also Meccariello Aeris Equities 2 (ready to wear).
The selection is narrowed down to Crocket and Jones and Salvatore.
However, after Meccariello is a game changer with price and quality you write about hear.
Advice, most substantial differences etc. would make my purchase as a rookie (for now) much easier.

Sub-question, is it recommendable to put a very thin layer of rubber on the leather sole in order to preserve the shoe? Or is this a no go, if so how can one keep the leather sole in good shape?

Yep you can get a cobbler to add a rubber half-sole (also sometimes called a topy)

This is not the appropriate thread to post this.

How did the Adelaide fit in the instep compared to the Rain? I can’t wear the Rain as the instep is too formidable but fit comfortably into the Inca with an additional insole/tongue pad. Have narrow heels, minimal arch, low volume foot with wide forefoot. Best fit is Alfred Sargent 87 last, Inca close second.

I actually had a pair of Adelaides made by Tom when the shoes were still in production. I took the same size as I do in my Carolina Rains, and the classic last on the SOH shoes feel more roomy in the forefoot.

Otherwise, the craftsmanship is excellent and the value is there. I am not sure where the leather was sourced for the pair that was made for mine, but it feels on par to my Yankos and a step down from my Carminas.
