yeah..I saved these pics in 2016, and now that I contacted the guy on IG he won't reply lol. Not sure if they are even being produced now. The balance of the sole looks perfect IMO.

Nice Pad.

Waiting for my Mccoys N1s to come back. A little nervous as they were expensive as fuck.

I'm looking for similar soles. I have a pair of 7 holes coming from Japan that new a new midsole as well, so may just go with Christy's.

Nice job Pad, had similar done with my old kgrs

Clivia Morflex is a good sheet.

Also, 865CS Milton units don't look too bad for a wedge, not sure if they come in cream tho.

I got mine red wings back from Yorkshire sole , unfortunately can’t get on with the white souls

Got a pair of barley cords redone at same time, second to none work and very pleased with those

I'm planning on sending the 7Holes to him. Seems like a decent guy from the chat I had with him.

Like the Milton dee. Could be a contender. I'm essentially having to start again as the shoe looks like this atm! Laughing out loud

Yeah he’s sound, work man ship is great, I just wish with the red wings I had given him more direction on the colour. Not sure if there is an option for black but on reflection for me I should have asked

I think the brick coloured soles that Trickers use would work well on most redwings.

Gave up trying to keep the original cream soles clean along time ago.

@hanto almost kopped these 2 weeks ago, but having them resoled would have added too much to the price as i would do a full rewelt (the stitvhing looks terrible here) . anyway commando sole all the way i would say!

The stitching is awful. No ideal who did it! Will have to see what the crack is when they are done, but the Commando is tempting!
