Good Evening Tom,

I recently brought some semi brogue mink suede shoes in size eight
I have discovered that the soles of the shoes have started to come away at the edge after wearing them in the rain once
What would you recommend?

Kind regards

Paul

Hi Tom, Can you say what leather the black sneakers will use?
Black calf leather (full grain) from an Italian tannery. I should have pictures later today.

For Black Utah, we'd need 30 participants to pull it off, it would look something like this:

These look great! These have 4 eyelets/4 hooks if I recall correctly versus the 5 eyelets/3 hooks combination on the stock fieldboot?

Looking forward to my pair (on ridgeway) from the summer GMTO.
These have arrived last week by the way, will be sending them out this week!

Thanks and yes its 4/4 combination of eyelets/hooks.
I have other kudo boots from G&G which used Peabody Kudo i think i.e Arran Chukka and Thorpe which i absolutely love.
This one is great with shearling lining like Galway and will serve its intended purpose in very cold weather/snow.

The commando sole and shearling are definitely definitely ideal for your location and intended use.

I regret not getting into G&G until very late into my footwear journey. I missed out on a lot of great makeups that were (probably) easier to attain via Skoak, Leffot and Mehra. I do have a pair of NOS Burnham via ebay, believe they were a Leffot makeup from back in the day.
