But should shoes be "soft as butter and fit like a glove"?
He's right when it comes to women. Sammy Ambrose frequently gets approving comments from female colleagues that he is 'smart from head to toe '. Women definitely pay attention to shoes.
well, than my work is done ..., here. teach/inform, at least it's your mother tongue.Fritzl used to love jokes as much as he did teaching the world about Project Paprika.
well, if getting laid is an ambition, gucci or ferragamo horse-bits would take the lead ..., probably.As the mighty Grayson (Marc Grayson) once said, "you won't get laid in Vass"
Sorry Fritzl, l know it is a sick joke and you probably won't like it, but l am just playing trying to amuse the average bloke with the tired old jokes.
Nah, it's our old friend fritzl/walker/Gerd Michael Wermescher. Austrian village idiot who seems to be off his meds again. Looking for an unwashed peasant with a know-it-all attitude on all things shoes, constant anger issues and a penchant for cheap provocation? He's your guy.
actually, I like the big picture of them, particularly the last shape plus the heel height and size ratio.
which colours does shinki offer?
phew, the information flow of shinki is still static and/or pathetic. bummer, their business model is not for shoe hides, unfortunately.Shinki is a Japanese tannery specializing in some really amazing horse hides in analine, veg and chrome tanned leathers as well as popular pigment died (‘teacore’) hides. They mostly seem to sell to the vintage leather jacket manufacturers. While the range of colours in other leathers is pretty wide, I’ve only ever seen the above brown (Viberg did a limited run) and a black in the horsebutt.
Benzein is a one-man (with some family helping in the front of the shop) operation from Indonesian doing custom, made to order boots. What hides he has available at any one time can vary a lot.

fwiw, I'd rather have shinki than horween. the latte doesn't appeal to me.
You gotta speak Japanese and know a guy.
It’s way nicer, though Horween CXL is great as a practical, water-resistant work or outdoor sports boot.
Hello! My name is Masaichi Hasegawa and I am the Founding Partner and Director of Asia Pacific of Gaziano and Girling Limited.
Since my last trip to Sydney and Melbourne was extremely successful and now that Australia is open, I wanted to visit Sydney and Melbourne to hold trunk shows in late September.
However, I need to know that there is enough interest before booking the trip.
Should you be interested in attending our trunk show, please send me your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. My tentative plan is to hold a trunk show in Sydney on the 16,17,18 of September, and Melbourne on the 20, 21, 22 of September.
Again, my email address is email@example.com.
Please send me your interest with which city you are from, your mobile number, and your shoe size.

What’s a woodsman heel? That just looks like it’s a normal heel.
I’m gonna guess they’d be around $700 shipped, MTO.The cognac is gorgeous. How much do those boots cost?
Look at how this great shoemaker describes himself,Shooey.Discovery of a great shoemaker in Rome:
Or perhaps Sammy Ambrose doesn't. I had always thought the term was restricted to repair. Merriam Webster, however, includes 'making'.Look at how this great shoemaker describes himself,Shooey.

But setting that aside, how do we know this guy is any good. Can we believe him and Crompers?
What do you guys use to clean your shoes and sneakers?
