    Well done. You really nailed that Lobb Museum calf effect.

    What happened to them and why do they look so freaking long?

    They are a size 10.5 and the owner (a friend of mine) strut around with them in the snow. The salt and chemicals in the snow are nasty when it comes to shoes.

    Outstanding job, Crat. That's simply amazing. Just goes to show how resilient and beautiful leather can be. Just needed some TLC to be ped-art!

    Thank you. Is this new? I might have seen it if you've posted it before in this thread.

    EDIT- didn't realize that was you that posted on Sizzle. Checking thread on phone while on light rail home.

    I don't know. I think that when he linked his blog, people wandered onto it, but it was only added to youtube a month and a half ago.

    Indeed, Crat has great accent ( for us US guys anyway). Great video Crat. I'll have to do one one of these days too.

    Indeed and not just for you US guys. I think he's got a great voice for voiceovers.

    Pardon the pun but he sounds very, um, polished.

    I think the accent makes Crat more adept. He certainly *sounds* more adept/expert :)

    I made the video a while ago and posted it here at the time. Decided to start a blog later on later and put it on there as well.
    I'm glad you're finding it useful. :)

    And yes, leather really is a lovely material and can take quite a beating. The chemicals and salt in snow are terrible though.
