Put 2 pairs of visvim boots in last week to be resoled, due to get them back tomorrow. 50 quid each.

Will let you know the quality when I get them back if you like?

Cheers bud

Picked them up and they are spot on, would definitely recommend using them

Assuming they can do it does anyone know the price of a leather sole + Vibram outer? £50 for that would be a bargain.

Looking for something like these 3-eye lugs but better quality and more interesting (read: cooler brand).

Lugged or wedge sole. Not Yuketen- too heavy.

Any bright ideas?

Russel Moc

yeah I like the Timberland brand but all the 3 eyes look poorly made.

In actual they're probably not bad, I have some waterproof chukkas that are really good.

Bass do some similar. I think they are having a resurgence with a new shop in Soho etc. Not a recommendation though. https://www.ghbass-eu.com/ranger-moc-montgomery-dark-brown-leather.html

Cheers but the leather Bass uses sucks big time. Proper cheapo stuff.

Will look at Russell. Other than Alden and a handful of others, it's almost impossible to find stockists for many of the Yank shoemakers outside of the US and Japan.

Until I move to some new hosting site, anyone interested in a pair of these Fratelli Rossetti oxfords?


https://www.yoox.com/it/11274552IQ/item#dept=men&sts;=sr_men80&cod10;=11274552IQ&sizeId;=5&sizeName;=40

Got them off Yoox before summer for around £350, used for a month or so but unfortunately they are a touch too small.

UK9\EU43, classic shape, great quality and still in great conditions.

Looking for a quick sale so after 200£ all in shipped from Italy. If anyone is interested will take some pictures

I need some more boots without a slim profile like chelsea boots. have to work with an our legacy aesthetic. really really struggling. always found red wings a bit too h.i.p./nan. found these docs which seem alright, I like that lack of lame yellow doc stitching. anything else in that sort of military style? or anything else I am missing. dont have to have laces

Common projects? I’ve got the combat boots and they seem to fit your description.

CP combat boots are very slim fitting imo, so wouldnt suggest them if looking something a bit chunkier.. This was the exact reason I sold mine.
