These are truly incredible. It’s funny how some Yeossal SpTD’s have a seamless heel and some don’t. My pair that was part of the collection group order doesn’t but I have a second pair on order, so we’ll see how that goes.
Thank you so much. Hopefully your second order has the seamless heel and looking forward to see more of what you have ordered. It’s always so nice to see your videos on YouTube and especially for the SpTD shoes I always keep my eye on :)
As @Encore said, JEALOUS is the word here!!


One thing i've started to notice is how long the actual split toe is and how it changes the aesthetics. Seeing them all side by side shows how much longer the split toe is on the dovers compared to both the Y and GG. Also interesting how the pie crust has nice round shape on the dovers but the Thorpes is more squarish on the toes.

The GG rosewood kudu would make a nice addition to this collection. There's enough difference between them and the Oak kudu thorpe to keep both.:fistbump:
Thank you so much. I agree I would like the Rosewood kudu as well and maybe I will do a MTO at some point. For now waiting on two more SpTD orders.

oh yea I'm definitely getting OT on horween espresso hatchgrain, just as a "2nd" one I would get AM as the "dressier" option (smooth calf, and i like dark burgundy), probably settle with Argenum Welt rather than handwelt with AM
That makes sense and looking forward to see your make up.

Here's a picture of my GG oak kudu Thorpe and rosewood Isham. Couldn't capture the colour properly.

STC also makes a pretty badass split toe. Although this one is machine stitched, I find the proportions were nicely executed.

Thanks, bro! I’m editing the OT unboxing now, so that should be out this week.

The Ishams are actually half a size bigger but that's because I had missed the original GMTO and looked for one used. Couldn't find one in size 9, these are 9.5. They're a bit longer in length but not too bad, and definitely not unwearable.

Do you take the same size for GG shoes vs. boots in same last? And if so, do they feel the same inside?

Cross post from the Yeossal thread.
Just took delivery of the Yeossal - Thomson shoes (SpTD) and following are the specs:

Leather: Chestnut Utah (Hass Utah Grain Leather)
Size: 8UK/42
Sole: Leather (Black/Natural Color) + Metal Toe tips

Extra: slight burnishing and shine on Toe/heel

Please Note pictures posted below are taken inside so they may look slightly darker than when taken outside.

My main concern was the fit and they fit perfect.
Good enough room in toe area and very good fit in length/heel/instep areas.

I am glad i didn't order the SG65 last as that would have been tight for the toes for sure as i feel the toe area is very tapered on that last and i think YC3 last is better suited for SpTD.
The only negative thing i can say for this order is the burnishing was done darker than what i had asked for.
After wearing for few minutes i feel i am fine with that burnishing and can use some Saphir Reno. conditioner to lighten a bit in future. Overall i am very happy with the shoes and i highly recommend Yeossal Team and Jackson.
These Guys are fantastic !!
I will post more comparison pictures with EG SpTD and G&G SpTD as well sometime soon :)
All look fantastic! 👏🏻

If you decide they just don't fit like you want, let me know ;)

thought in general saurabh is half size smaller than you and me (we're 9.5D US, he is 9D US)?

edit: as I used to watch his B&S and magically hope it was half size bigger
