    Because I don't know how to post larger ones that's why.

    Because I don't know how to post larger ones that's why. Doesn't appear to be a way on the site so I'm stuck with thumbnails. Any assistance would be gratefully received.

    1) open photobucket account
    2) upload pictures to PB
    3) resize if needed in PB
    4) post link of pictures in thread on SF

    hope this helps!

    I'm gonna be in HK in a few weeks and was looking for a lightweight, more flexible 'sporty' dress shoe, does Zee's have soles like that or do they just do traditional construction? I know little about shoes, but I've always associated the latter with being heavy, clunky and stiff things.

    Ok Photobucket worked. Thanks for that Luk-Cha.
    These are leather soled but I asked for Topy to be added to make them a bit softer on the foot.
    Wearing them today, so we shall see. At US$180 I reckon they are a bargain. I did look for a pair in stores and equivalent quality were double the price IMO.

    a bit better but still a tad small

    Zee's are good value for money not the best buy along shot but you can not get better fitting shoes for the money any where

    Would a place like Zee's have rubber soles available or would they just do leather ones?

    If not, could I acquire them elsewhere in HK and bring it to them to build the shoe on top of? It seems impossible to buy Vibram soles for some reason... no one sells them.

    Zee's starting price is $200 now, not the $150 mentioned earlier in this thread... I just talked to him yesterday. Anyone know of a HK shoemaker who's still around the 150 price point? Thanks

    Got a quick question regarding buying shoelaces in Hong Kong. Does anybody know where I can find flat waxed laces? I've tried looking for it in a couple of places around the island, including the alley behind Shanghai Tang but failed to find any.

    Furthermore, does anybody know where I can find Dainite rubber soles as well? I'm hoping to have Zee's make a pair of rain-weather shoes.

    I apologize that these questions don't really have much to do with Zee's. Will post pics of my recently commissioned captoes to make up for it!

    Benjamin,

    Sorry, both your answers are no.
    Except if you want to pay HK$75 for a pair of shoelace(JLP sell it).

    I bought about 10 pairs of flat wax laces in 3 different colour when I was in Japan last month, you can find them anywhere in Japan.

    Here is the dainite he resoled for my Alden:

    I am talking to my cobbler about ordering Dainite to HK, however, he is worry about the sales, since not many pals in HK knowing it. The big trouble is he don't have the space to store the stock. You know space is money in HKG.
