This, preferably round W1/WC1 or Kings Cross.
Need a pair of shoes resoled, got it done in Timpsons last time and lasted about 3 weeks.

Thanks

Anyone have the Mark McNairy x Goodhood derby boots? wondering if the quality is any good and whether it's a size down jobbie.

Gizmo I would stay true as they run quite narrow near bottom eyelets and toe - I have the tres bien x mcnairy and they are snug
