    Now that the revamped forum makes picture upload incredibly user friendly let's start a new shoes thread. Got some new shoes? Post some pics! Everyone loves pic threads and everyone loves shoes so it's the best of both worlds.

    I'll start.

    These are a birthday present from my wife from last week.

    I officially have shoe envy, @CLTesquire! How am I supposed to follow that?

    Two handsome new pair(s) and a loving and generously giving better half to boot. A birthday just can't get much better than that! CLTesquire, may you long wear those new shoes and may you do so only in good health.

    Nice kicks CLT.

    While not anywhere near the same category of shoes, I. Received an e-mail today that an MTO Meermin just shipped. I wonder what they are. It's been so long it will be a surprise. I think they are navy double monk boots, but I'll know for sure soon.

    I look forward to seeing some pics!

    Ha. I'm hoping you'll follow it anyway. There are many beautiful shoes in the world that aren't super expensive English shoes. The majority of my collection is Bonafe and Vass after all.

    Surprise shoes sound fun. This is a situation that would only happen to you. :icon_saint7kg:

    CLT - of course you start this thread just after Paul Stuart announces a 60% off sale on a large number of their shoes - doubling down on temptation . . . :crazy:

    Shoes were purchased - photos will be taken later this week, when it cools off, and one can dress up without sweltering. For the record, there was a selection of high-end shoes on sale at 60% off that, from what I can discern, were Gaziano & Girling, (I mentioned Edward Green or Gaziano & Girling to the department manager, and he said "yes", without qualifying which maker, but which, after a short Google image search, would apparently be G & G). Unhappily, the last on which they were made on the MH71 last, which is at variance with the shape of my foot, making the potential expenditure not worth it.

    I had heard there were good prices on G&G models carried by Paul Stuart. Sad to hear the last doesn't fit your foot. Someone told me all of the G&G shoes carried at Paul Stuart were on the TG73 last. I guess that was incorrect.

    If you have definitive info on the last model used for Paul Stuart's G&G's, I would take your word over my own - I was doing guesswork from photos on Google with reference to the various lasts for G&G.

    As for the price reductions, $569 down from about $1400 is a most pleasant discount.

    Paul Stuart shoes are excellent and during their semi annual sales, very well discounted.

    If one knows what to look for, some excellent brands can be had at prices not often found otherwise.

    I, too, got that email. I believe it was only good instore on Mad Ave. I wonder when they'll be done with the remodeling.

    These are not as nice as the first couple of shoes we started out with. But they're new. And they're different. And we haven't had a picture of new shoes today.
    Here are my Allen Edmonds Saukville boots.

    Like you, I had thought they were all on MH71. But folks at TOF said all of the models were TG73. That was a dealbreaker for me as that last just looks too narrow and confining. Incredible price though.

    I did email Paul Stuart this exact question but never received a response.
