Cross post. MTO St. Crispin's from Leather Soul.
Nice shoes, JB.
User "Posh" from www.newsaboutshoes.de once repaired a St. Crispin.
She documented the whole process and revealed some details that she wasn't very happy about quality-wise. Anyway, if you're interested, here's the thread: http://www.newsaboutshoes.de/showthread.php?t=804 Maybe Google translate helps, otherwise PM me and I'll help as much as possible.
Great stuff guys. Love the captoe and medallion. that shoe is perfection, imo
That split-toe is absolutely terrific. It reminds me of the JM Weston Hunt Derby. It is a much better looking split-toe derby than the EG Dover, in my opinion. Wear it well.
I really dig the grain on these.
+1. They actually look Russian Reindeer-esque, just without the scoring.
+1. I can't get enough of that Inca calf.
it's the handmade factor, but i'm sure you knew that already...
that's too easy, imo.
What would be better competition? Just curious.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
A great choice!
What's the configuration? Shoe looks amazing.
p.s., Fritzl EG Dover sets a pretty high bar for NST
Thank you! Tom and I designed it by taking elements of the Dover and incorporating it into the JM Weston Chasse. We then added the Norwegian welt. I have a last at SC- not bespoke, but they took a standard last and modified it. Not sure what to call it. Anyhow, the shoe is available for special order at LS.
^ well done man. how is the fit?
The fit is great- SCs have a ton of stability at the arch due to wood pegs they put in at that area. While this pair lacks the pegs, it remains very stable at the arch. I wouldn't consider myself someone who needs arch support, but for some reason the added stability makes SCs extremely comfortable. SCs are the most comfortable RTW shoes IMHO.
