These last 6months of my life have seen some extremely monumental changes in perspectives on footwear.

I used to go to DSW & and find some mercanti fiorentini $200 shoes and think they were Gods gift to man, hoping to catch them on a 40% off week-end discount opportunity.

I now will refuse to spend even $50 if I ever saw those same shoes on sale. I am now very much into goodyear welted, quality crafted footwear (in the affordable sub $350range), with a particular interest in vintage brands. Even the Made in the US Red Wings & Thorogood boots are my minimum for boots, Allen Edmonds, etc.

Those brown ones were of my pre-awakening days., Broletto, cheap made in china/made in india. I think they go for $120'ish at DSW or Nordstrom Rack or Saks off - I forget exactly where. I've been selling all off my pre-awakening items, I think I'm down to maybe just one or two left overs. These ones were, though stylistically very nice, just not quality based - so they got the boot.

I do have some various pre-worn (but also some new) shoes in various sizes for sale, if anybody is interested. Message me with your cell# & size & I'll MMS you what I have. Can courier to GTA and anywhere in Canada no problem(I use freightcom, RFD hook-up ;) ). Prices from $50-$250'ish. I've started sourcing quality second hand shoes & selling them for shitsngiggles. I LOVE finding our own Canadian Vintage legacy items, Dack's, Hartt. Simply fantastic to get those puppies back in circulation and out of dark, dusty deceased relatives' trunks and attics. Red Wings, AE, Wolverine 1000mile boots, FRYE, to name a few., vintage Bostonians, DACK's, etc etc.

I currently have from a Sz 3D to 13D.

Folks, buy the best quality shoes you can afford, even if you have to save or stretch a little. That is where you’ll find Value. They cost money, they cost money because they save money.

Take for example this pair of Edward Green, Galway boots. They’re not inexpensive by any means. But the value is that they can be re-crafted over and over. You’re in your shoes all day. It pays to invest in them. Take care of your shoes, and they’ll take care of you.

Did the whole Jermyn St shoe store tour last week, C&J, Edward Green, Lobb, etc.

Went inside Lobb and it was like Mecca. Met the bald shoemaker in the video posted above. Ran into Christopher Nolan and his wife doing shoe shopping, shook his hand and had a short chat with him. Super surreal.

Can anyone recommend a good cobbler in the Kitchener Waterloo area that does good resolve work? Ie they remove the old welt stitching and reuse the same stitching holes?
