    Those are nice looking, especially with the wear on them. Nice.

    It's been years, so I no longer remember. With the service and shipping though, it ends up being something around a couple of hundred dollars. Don't remember exactly.

    If they were lightly used then I take it that the resoling and recrafting was purely in aid of the sale?

    They look pretty darned good.

    Agreed, I've only had shoes re-lasted after modifications were made to a last. It made a "modest" difference.

    My latest order will be made with those modifications. Should be a true test of this service.

    I've just received two pairs that were relasted to account for fit adjustments. These are pret adjustments not last modifications, but the results seem pretty good.

    I think they are either 8F or 8.5F - best for a US 9D or 9.5D.

    Wait - this is a thing? What kind of adjustments can be made, and what was the approximate cost?

    ~$50 per adjustment. Or something like that.

    This is a thing. Multiple adjustments can be made, as indicated in the pic posted above. If you're not a really super difficult fit, these adjustments can make a standard last fit you as close to perfectly as possible. I had a couple tweaks to the classic last in an 8.5G and the shoes fit like an absolute dream.

    Oh wow. If I can get some Fit 5 and Fit 6 adjustments, I might wear these more. :slayer: Sorry for the noob question - who do I contact at StC to get this process started?
