A day or two of delay, but I expect to receive a big part of the shoes this Wednesday. The others will follow before the end of September if all goes well.
Just ordered a pair of the kudu chukkas - can't wait! Looks like you're building a great brand. Best of luck

Just ordered a pair of the George STD in mink suede. This will be my 5th pair of Sons of Henreys. I guess they hit the sweet spot for me. Apart from the nice designs and great leathers, the best thing for me is the fit of the lasts. Because in the end you also want your shoes to be really comfortable...

Fingers crossed for the suede chukkas
Those should be in the first batch!

Thank you for your order, I appreciate the support!

One of the larger collections of SoH at the moment, thank you for your continued support. I agree that fit is important, and if you have found a good fit in our shoes then I'm happy to hear that.

A small update of how things have been progressing these past couple of days:

Today, I'm waiting for the first batch of shoes to be delivered. The photo studio is set up, so I'm ready to start shooting either today or tomorrow.

Display shoe trees arrived through a friend (@WilYa), and they look amazing. Quality wise they're some of the best I've seen, sizing was spot on and finishing was just out of this world. I'll post a pic or two later. These display trees will be coming with me to Stockholm for the Trunkshow, and then to the pop-up in October.

Pop-up is taking shape, although I'm a bit on a budget as it's only for one month. I'm re-painting the walls and then have to bring in some furniture. For all the Belgian and Dutch members out here, if you're interested in visiting the pop-up, send me a PM! The city where it's located (Knokke) has a lot more to offer in terms of menswear than before, so it could make a nice day trip or weekend.

The shoe-ID's are finished and I'm going to the printer one of these days. The idea is to display the ID's next to the shoes during the Stockholm Trunkshow, as well as including a printed A5 ID-card with all the shoes I sell. I think it will be nice to know the exact details of your shoes, the different materials that goes into making it and the special features of the shoe.

Packaging is slightly updated too, but more on that later!

Thanks for the update. What exactly do you mean by display shoe trees? I'm guessing they won't be for sale?

They will be used for trunkshows, and for the pop-up. They won't be for sale, that's correct.

The moment they get here I can start taking pictures. Couple of days :).

I also think SoH should start selling if there is enough interest.
Disclaimer: I supply the trees, lol
And I'm very grateful for it! If there's enough interest I'd be happy to start selling.

After a failed delivery attempt today, I got tired of waiting and decided to drive to the fulfilment center and pick up the shoes.

Bit of polishing tomorrow and then I can start taking pictures :fistbump:

Amazing how an order of shoes placed at the end of May, arrives exactly 2 days before the shoes need to be forwarded to Stockholm.

Slow goings: final hand polishing on the shoes that need to be photographed and that I will be taking with me to Stockholm; I hope I'll be able to take some pictures later this afternoon.

Quick and dirty iphone picture of the George STD on Soft Sqaure last in Sienna Hatch Grain:
