First off,

I do like these but if I recall correctly they are $500-600, which just means it’s supposed to be a hype shoe and nothing serious. Other than that I think it’s nicely done. They used a different last and some really nice looking leathers.

Can someone tell me to what the lower stitching on the foxing is attached or is it just show?

what’s the insider info on these…did you guys approach him to build the shoes or visa-versa?

while i’d agree that $600 doesn’t make these a feasible pair of shoes for my closet, I think they are rad.

Very cool.
