Had a feeling it might be the repair shop. He did a couple of pairs of red wings for me a while back but there was a delay as he was off filming but said he couldn’t tell me what it was.

Cheers for the heads up, the finished piece looked great! Only spoken with him a bit when he did my repair through IG messenger but definitely a decent guy. Hope they got some more pieces like that in and it can increase his profile. Mind you I think he is always flat out anyway!

Yeah, I think he’s always got as much work as he needs, probably as he’s very well regarded and a thoroughly decent guy. He ended up offering to do the second pair at cost or to redo them because of the tiniest stitch out of place. Really nice to see people with that kind of standard of work.

Anybody got a pair of the Clark's Trek Taiyo?



Saw them a while ago and thought they looked interesting but price was mental (£250 for Clarks!). Now down to a much more reasonable £76 in the sale and quite tempted, be good to see a pair worn properly though.

I'm gonna get a pair in black gg, I like them but have a feeling they won't be too popular on here. Think they're a size up half/full job

Look a bit like the kind of thing someone who gets their kids around in a cycle trailer might wear.

Price is steeep on those, but decent at the sale price. Fit will be similar to the usual desert trek

Remember similar sentiment about Birks in any shape or colour but consensus has shifted on them now…

Just a reworking of the Suicoke ones aren’t they. Even Vuitton / Virgil have a pair out.

Shades of the Reebok beatnik too but don't think they've taken off as much in the west as the release did on Japan

Leather looks great, one that will improve with a load of creases and scuffs

Laughing out loud Northampton is probably the world capital of mens' shoes.
Decent map here: https://northamptonshoes.com/pages/factory-shops

Definitely check C&J opening hours because they were weird when I went but def worth a visit.
What size are you? I'll keep an eye out for decent deals.

Haha! Cheers dude. UK8. Will go have a look in a week or so Cool

Anyone got a pair of the black Wallabees with the painted sole?

Reckon it can be sanded off?

God knows what they were thinking. Gum looks 100x better.

Anywhere in London that can slim the shaft of a pair of RW Peco's? It's a mod I have seen some US folk have done, where they remove some of the leather and add a press stud closure. Was thinking Felix J perhaps.
