Try-on shoes round 2. Great fit all around. No gaping as well.
Need to adjust strap points but that should be an easy fix.

Timeline:
3/27 - MTO commissioned
4/12 - Received try-on shoes
4/15 - Consultation with cobbler via WeChat
4/26 - Received try-on shoes round 2



I've just received my shoes last Thursday. Been wearing them for a couple of days now and I couldn't be happier.

They fit great. Snug but not a tight fit. Feels great for my flat feet with high instep.

5/23 - Received completed shoes

These are Oct Tenth's take on single monks made in dark brown Janus suede. The Huang last with soft chiseled toe doesn't look so chiseled when in motion, really. I am wearing here with dark washed denim for some punk vibes.

Thought I'd chime in real quick. My name is Tom, I am the owner of Sons of Henrey and Vekla footwear.

Regarding my relationship with OT, this is actually quite simple. I used to be a proxy/agent for Vass shoes, and because of my experience there the people behind OT asked me to be their international sales agent. This was about 3 years ago. I had the chance then to help shape part of the offering, and advise on what sizing system to use etc. But I do not own OT or a part of it.

The reason why I decided to take on this challenge is because I believe they represent the highest value in the hand welted shoe market today. That has always been my main goal: to bring true value to the customer.

I will be the first to admit that things have been hectic and somewhat difficult since quite some time now. I am trying to deal with a family emergency that has drained out my energy. Things are improving now and I am looking at what to do with Sons of Henrey, and get back on track with OT.

Feel free to contact me by PM or email at [email protected]
