    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    The shoe you posted looks like a Stan Smith.

    A lot of Chinese manufacturers already do the same sole 3-4 years ago but I can't speak on the quality since I saw them on display only at trade shows. They can do oem as well but again I did not ask about MOQ and what not. Maybe the italian rubbers more durable lol ?

    All Common Project shoes (men's and women's styles) are made in an Italian footwear factory in the Marche region of Italy, which made only leather dress shoes before Common Projects asked it to manufacture sneakers, according to Business of Fashion. The shoes are made of Italian leather and are stitched by hand.

    I like the mechanics boots. The sole will wear out over time, but it is not as fragile as you might think. The sole is replaceable.

    Crepe soles are actually fairly durable. They wear down, but fairly uniformly, and after a while, develope nearly a hardened outer layer,

    These are nice. Honestly, though, them make me yearn for the Visvim version.

    While searching Russell Moccasin options you invariably end up seeing stuff made just for the Japanese market....Very Nice indeed.

    I believe your only option is to contact Russell Moccasin and have them custom made...I think the leather is Tan French Veal and the boot is a South 40 Birdshooter...Russell prices are pretty good for a custom boot but is does take 20 weeks to get your boots.These Russell Moccasin Imperials are nice too.

    Well here's the website they were featured on...looks like 2012... Japan seems to be the land of exclusive ltd editions that simply come and go...apparently Russell Moccasin is very good with their custom options so maybe email them the link and see what they say...cheers.
