• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

for Styleforum members, I'll happily do it on all GMTO and MTO, not RTW as that would take me too far :)

Tomorrow at 15:00 CET the pre-order for the Vekla sneakers will launch.

These are difficult times, and I must admit I had my doubts about launching the project at this time. However, I believe that nothing good will come from me postponing the launch. It would only result in even more hardship and sorrow. I believe it is vital now to support the economy, both brick and mortar stores and online brands.

The factory in Italy has also given me the green light to launch the collection, and are in agreement with the delivery date. It is also in their interest that they are able to pick up where they left off before the crisis, as quickly as possible. Luckily, the factory is in a region in Italy where the problem is less severe.

I am finishing an important piece of the website, one where I will detail the entire journey of creating these sneakers, start to finish. I have attached a preview below. I hope you're all as excited as I am.

Stay safe everyone!

I have poured my heart into the sneaker project, and the end result speaks for itself. A unique, elegant and high quality sneaker at an amazing price. I will report back shortly with some more information, but wanted you guys to be the first to see it. Enjoy the website, the journal that I spoke of in my previous post will be published on Sunday.

Happy launch day, Tom!

Order placed! You made it a bit of a challenge to narrow down my final choice with those starter models :cool:

Likely a waaay too early wish, but throw my hat in the ring for a future Vekla Off White Suede.

Me neither, but I'm definitely keeping some for myself ;) .

Thank you M., much appreciated! I believe you picked out the all-time favorite (so far).

I'll have a look at what colours are available, I even think I have a sample that's close.

Thank you J. :cheers:!

From the pictures it seems that you are using margom soles, correct ? If so, you should add that on description. Sneakers aficionados love that. I remember that Great was building their sneaks with margom soles first before moving to a lesser quality in-house sole.

Correct, Margom rubber soles. It's mentioned in the text but I'll see if I can make it more clear. Thanks for the tip!

These look great! Definitely going to place an order. Do you have any sizing guidance whether that's relative to dress shoes or relative to other minimalist sneakers like CPs?

Sizing to SOH is currently TTS: if you are a size UK8 or UK8.5 in SOH then take a 42.

Sizing relative to CPs is also exactly the same, 42 in CP is 42 in Vekla. CP has changed their sizing a couple of times since their first sneaker more than 10 years ago, but that's based on recent sizing.

I have a friend who sizes as an exact 10UK in SoH, and he is a 44 in CP and Vekla.

You have Lorem ipsum stand-in text if you click on sizing.
