I’ve read a lot of… dubious… narratives regarding premium boots to justify their own importance, but this was hilarious!! 😂 😂
I don’t know, the pics of the boots at Bedos, which is like 10min from WF, make me think it could be true.

EDIT: but then again, he’s just holding them.

I don’t think Bedo could relast and resole a full size run of stitchdown boots nor would they be able to source a full size run of 1035 lasts. It’s a funny post though.

He cooked up a funny story to explain why he has a make up so similar to the recently released Stitchdown x Standard & Strange offering.

Come on guys! There's no way he really bought out the SS stock and had Bedo change the sole and relast it.

I WANT it to be true!

I mean, luxury goods outfitters often take themselves too seriously (let’s not revisit the PNW homeless video drama), so it’s definitely refreshing to see quality effort put in when stockists release similar makeups to keep things light - it’s a small community, after all!

But putting the pixelated pics of Steve in the narrative? Genius… pure genius… 😂

For real. It’s way refreshing considering the nonsense DR writes ad nauseam.

This. I could really use some inter-stockist drama. Lol

I’ve been passively recommending Georgios Bottega as a good west coast cobbler alternative. This is my first resole I have received from him. really great work 👍


I had him hand stich the dr soles corded to keep the 9-10 stitch per inch original. Turned out great.

Wow, those turned out fantastic!


I’m totally going in on these! I mean come on… View attachment 1642459

It's all fun and games until you're betrayed by the guy who cleans up the outsole trimmings after the Viberg factory closes. :D

(Yes, that was super-fun to read -- both the email and the post.)

If I didn't already have the Midnight Gasfires (which I love) I'd definitely be picking up the Noontime Waterdowns.
