Marrkt viberg sample sale looks good. Annoying it’s almost always all size 10. Viberg fit huge in my opinion.

Any suggestions for getting the stitching on a Yuk repaired? Probably needs the stitching unpicked so that the two sides can be sewn together again. Local cobbler is decent but not sure if I would trust them with this.

I live near Aero Leathers—thought they could be worth a shout. Any advice appreciated

https://www.marrkt.com/collections/new-arrivals/products/service-boots-27 These are a bargain true to size U.K. 8. I just returned them gutted too small. Viberg sizing is mental naw? I had an 8.5 once that fitted like a 10.5 so thought I’d be lucky with these but naw. Come with two shoe bags and really nice saphir leather insoles that cost £20 themselves.

They seem to offer lots of Vibram soles and presumably can fit them as well.

Anyone had their shoes done in here? If so, what's the quality like and how much are you looking at?

Somewhere on this thread someone says very very poor. Yorkshire sole is the way to go.

I got them to put some mini ripple sheets on some sneakers and some were good, others clearly rushed.


There's also a pair of Rick Owens OG geobaskets (the ones with the Nike tick) in there behind the counter that they said a customer never bothered picking up. Was going to buy them and flip but have no idea if they're genuine or not Laughing out loud

Think I also posted about this after going. Not good, did a different sole to what I asked for Laughing out loud

Old street Vibram, shit. Made my visvim’s look like moonboots and a nasty squeak.

If you need it to be in London, would recommend Kokos.
