This shoe is EE head with blue patina. The sole at the bottom was done by my request at the workshop to cover the leather.

Hi all, would like some advice regarding if i should resole my shoes now (or recraft? not sure about the difference) or wait for a few more months.

I've owned them for about 2 years but only started wearing them regularly 6 months ago. I rotate between the 2 pairs + another pair of danite boots everyday for 4 days a week.

One is a loake 1880 the other is a Loake Royal Brogue. Also, any tips on where i can get a resole or recraft beside Ed Et Al? just looking for options.





also will a resole change the heels also or is that a seperate job because the rubber on the back heel is worn on one side to about 20c coin thickness due to walking habits i guess

No need to resole. Just ask for a sole protector. Your shoes are in good shape.

I tried one before, not very comfortable for me. In the end throw away.

Try the brand tuv got? Jonathan Abel.

If he can get MTO for 400, RTW is likely to cost no more than 350.

Hi all, I've a pair of Yanko's that have been scruffed up at the side. Have tried to put Renovateur and shoe creme, but the scratches still seem quite obvious. Any recommendations for who or where I can bring this to for repair?

Seems like the leather is somewhat “cut” alrd, can try to cover over with creme and wax to mask it as much as possible and live with it. Don’t think much other options imho.
