thanks for SIC.

wanna ask the people here

https://www.yeossal.com/collections/...-brown-boxcalf

Anyone has any comments on TLB MALLORCA STRING LOAFER IN BROWN BOXCALF?

interested to get a pair of loafers for causal friday wear

my budget can be up to $300 or abit more if it is value for money

appreciate your kind replies
Subjective to what kind of person are you.

1. TLB MALLORCA PENNY LOAFER BROWN SUEDE - Normal suede Goodyear welted
- Good starting point for suedes

2. Y BY YEOSSAL HOOPER - Handwelted with Janus Suede (really the cream of suede)
- For someone who wants better quality suede with handwelted workmanship.

Both are pretty good value. Won't go wrong with either. Good luck

PS: I would go for item 2 because of quality, workmanship and design.

Hi guys. Need advise for the above. Still a noob when it comes to working shoea. The above shoe has been worn for almost 2 years, Mon to Fri office job shoes, my only pair of work shoes.

It is GY Welted, with leather outer sole I think. No rubber on the exterior apart from the heel area.

I see a large crack at the front part of the sole, and some cork materials inside.

This kind of damage, how can I prevent it in future? Also, resole is out of the question? Just buy a new one better right? This shoe costs me below $300.

Yeah, just buy new with the 11.11 sale or upcoming black Friday sale.

If you want to resole in the future, its best to do it before the sole crack.

GGWP really curious as to whether the shoe can be salvaged. But salvaging it will cost as much if not more than the shoe's initial price.

That is until you find out the price to re-welt the shoe.
