This is what I can add for you (pic from a santos Chelsea) and it’s about 80$ with a vibram heel. 1.5mm thick :)
As retailers go, definitely impressive you can sort out a lot of the additions beforehand. AFAIK, No other retailer does or offers this. Class of his own.

@BColl_Has_Too_Many_Shoes

I believe someone is ask you to step up the game!
I better change my username to BColl_Has_Too_Little_Shoes

I can do this in just 3 business days actually. Superb cobbler here in Stockholm
Again, class in his own to offer the service this quickly.

hi, you enable me, I enable you, it's a forever constant greater feedback loop...
At that rate, it definitely sounds like the elimination of storage space when storage space in my household is at a premium is inevitable. I'm waiting for my little ones to charge me rent, especially since I have a few hidden shoes in their closets.

Loving the banter!!!! And agreed that Kostas and the Noble Shoe are in a class of their own. I have purchased 6 pairs of CS and 1 CJ from him. No toppies or toe taps... yet heheh Once I get the guts and the funds, maybe PS and/or Zeb next. The sickness has set in for me too... m

For those of you interested on the Paolo Scafora Sizing. Germano told me that their shoes are G Fit and correspond to the English way. Here's what I asked next:

"So I was correct that G is wider fit! Example, Crockett & Jones has E (regular), F (Wide), G (Wider). Correct?"

And this is the answer:

"Dear Mr Kostas,
Following your example, our G, corresponds to an F or better an EE."


Basically, he confirms sizing down half for sure unless I am mistaken.
I have a lot of friend sizing up a half for Q last (compare with other lasts on PS), is there something you/ Germano would recommend or you think its better to take the same size on Q last.

I will be able to give a much better suggestion when I get my hands on them in July. Your friends are probably a better source of sizing information at the moment, although it could be possible due to the soft square nature of the last.

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
