1035 bourbon shell Grails courtesy of Calvin. Do I wear them or construct a shrine in my living room?
MonsieurLeDude (I don't remember his handle here) did both, so do both!

Ah ok was hoping you had some intel on upcoming SMUs for the fall.
Everyone's SMUs were cancelled or delayed from what I've been told. DR is getting some variations of seasonal drops, but that's the extent of it. I'm pretty disappointed as whatever 2040s S&S were working on definitely would have been amazing.

Damn, any reason given? Factory still trying to catch up from a reduced capacity or did Brett use this a reason to end SMUs for good?

Same reason we had no shell preorders for those 4(?) months. Factory is catching up. They've already started shuffling their release schedule around. We're missing some Halkett sizes still (including the one I want fml) as well as the full black comipel halkett run; every single regency calf model is missing still; the dark rubber dublin WSBs got delayed to the end of this month, no idea when the natty essex WSBs are sleighted to drop; and they'll be going into SS22 production pretty soon too. Hopefully everything gets sorted and stuff gets figured out.

Recently reached out to viberg about having my mini-ripple slippers resoled on lactae hevea. Apparently they're not doing LH resoles. Also not doing mini-ripple resoles. So they'll happily sell you a new pair on either sole, but won't resole. Any suggestions where I can source LH soles?

Looks great! Did you do that yourself or take it to be done professionally?
I took to cobbler and cost me $30.

Did some research and seems multiple passes of different grit sandings are required (often quoted to be 1~1.5 hours) and then edge dressing is needed to seal (which I need to research and buy). Figured it’s not worth the trouble or frustration if screwed up…:D

I ordered 10 or so soles (the minimum) directly from LH a while back to do my boots resoled. It was probably not a cost effective solution, but I really wanted to try it. I have a few left over Cricket and Walker soles in natural if you're interested and in the U.S., I could sell/send some to you at cost, though not sure these two models are what you're looking for on a slipper. The Walker could work without the heel (how I used it, as an experiment, which is working so far). Otherwise, I emailed LH here and they sent me an invoice for what I wanted. This was before they were more available in the U.S. Or Viberg started using then. Took about 1 week from France:

Interesting info, I appreciate the offer. Do you have any pics of how they turned out? Is the Walker heel a bit thicker than the Viberg specific LH heel?
