    medtech, you've some smart pairs there! Wear them in health! I especially like the strong shape on the instep.

    I can't recall if this SC 2012 workroom video has been shared on this thread already, but here we go:

    Chukkas look great Eddie! I will probably order a pair as well at the StC trunk show in Stockholm beginning May.

    What are the modfications you have done on the Classic last, slightly elongated I believe? Anything else?

    if you look at
    where the upper
    meets the heel
    from the back

    it looks from the photos
    as if the inner (arch) side
    is much higher
    than the other

    so it looks
    to me like
    sadface
    or
    sad eyebrows

    I think that might be because it follows the human leg contour better? I know for one I tend to finish my sole in that slanted (sad face) way on my other shoes which has flat heels to begin with

    I don't know where I'd wear these, but I saw them in person and fell in love. Must.... resist.....

    Well in my case (and many others i believe) , I tend to finish my sole with the sad face in the opposite direction. So it seems odd to create a shoe that does not start off from a neural stance. Is there a clarification from StC on this matter?

    I am sorry chogall, it is not clear to me what you mean by your statement

    Could you clarify it?
