I am spending the day preparing for my upcoming trip to Italy. Facemasks, hand sanitizer, etc. neatly packed next to my camera gear.

I had found a videographer in the area that could make a production video for the vekla sneakers. Protocols inside the factory are very strict these days, and unfortunately, I was not allowed to bring extra people into the factory. I'll try to entertain you with the best possible pictures I can take, and I'm even bringing flash lights and softboxes for that!

Alright boys and girls, so I can report that @Notch was true to his word. I'll have more words to share and pictures to demonstrate later. Unfortunately, her majesty's royal guard is on the loose and can lead to catastrophic consequences to my well-being.

Quickly then, the shoes are indeed in pristine shape. Shoe bags are a nice soft quality material as well.
The shoes look absolutely beautiful. The leather is very supple, think Utah Leather.

well, I believe you ordered my last (the more generous one) and probably my size (8.5 UK), so if it's such a problem, I can "take care for you"...

speaking of lazyman, just curious, what's the general consensus on the faux lace

with the center split (my terminology) on facing like this?

or without like the model shown, also reposting the original IG

p.s. if it's without faux lace, then definitely without the center split

Not a lazy man person (yet?) but I’d probably prefer it mostly looking like a regular shoe so with split

Really want a lazyman but question for you all? Will the elastic part stretch so much that you can't wear anymore? I imagine it's impossible to repair such issue as compared to those on a Chelsea?
