    I don't have a picture of the model. I didn't consider Vass at all honestly. It sounds weird, but I like getting my shoes from places local and with Vass you just can't do that.

    Full bespoke is still considerably more expensive than St. Crispin iirc.

    G&G's I love the look and styling of a lot of their stock models, but unfortunately the pair I have is by far the most uncomfortable shoe I own. I rarely wear them if I am going to be on my feet for a long time. Don't know what it is, but I have a high tolerance for uncomfortable footwear also so this is telling.

    So I mailed my pair of shoes for last adjusting to Phillip recently through USPS, and the last information on the tracking info was on April 17th, showing "Arrival at pick-up point" and Phillip has not received it yet.

    In hindsight, I should have shipped it through DHL as suggested by Phillip :( Anyone has experience shipping to the StC office before (using whichever postal service) care to discuss?

    What method of USPS? Priority or Express Mail? Priority can take up to 1 month.

    It does happen - all it takes is a metal steel toe cap on the shoes and metal detectors at the airport be in melt down. Customs be holding on to them forever. (and maybe wearing them ;-) ...

    The Boston bombing effect....

    Priority.. It is already in Romania. Apparently they expect Phillip to pick it up, but he's not sure which post office it is.

    The price for shell cordovan with Saint-Crispin's is by request and is more or less dependant on supply. You can always e-mail LeatherFoot at [email protected] to request an exact price, and we would be happy to get back to you without delay.
