    My wife has been asking this question for years. She has bought a few shoes from the Crockett and Jones womens collection. Yesterday we made a trip into NYC to see the Varda store. She bought two pair, and is happy with them.

    1. Don't sell your cigar LWB! (this is such a classic model, even if you have multi cigar colored shoes)
    2. Not sure, but that's crazy enough that it just might work.

    If made in USA is of real importance, look at Munro American. In truth, we've never found anything comparable to men's shoes except for Crockett and Jones women's line. And we've been looking for years.

    Holy crap! Are your shoes OK?

    **Edit**

    Have you tried wrapping the laces around the top?

    Haha literally the first thing I wanted to check was my shoes. Everyone around me was like "are you okay man you should sit down!" but I just wanted to flee and make sure my precious shoes were unscathed. Turns out I got a bit of chain grease on the ankles...but after a bit of brushing it left a unique patina so i'm okay with it.

    Anyone have shipping times/info from Tom Austin? Bought a pair last Thursday and NY is usually a 2 day transit.

    The way I walk seems to put a lot of wear on the toes of my Aldens, and all pairs that I own have this same trait, but this pair has it the worst. Will toe taps fix this issue?

    I've only worn these five times, it would be a massive shame to have to do a premature recraft.

    They have been pretty busy so I would give them this week. It was also Memorial weekend so that will delay things.
