I am happy with the work. I am less happy with the price. I totally understand the price as he has a proper store on the escalator and I dont even want to guess what the rent is; then again maybe he owns? Its nice to know that he is a reliable option. Still, he is not going to be my first option. I might use a mail order service in the USA next.
Ill probably end up putting on topy soles. While Ill enjoy the feel of walking on the leather sole, I need a shoe rotation for those wet days and Ill save the Aldens for the dry days.
@TLP He did not use JR soles. He quotes that he uses an italian sole. Also, I dont know if he uses original lasts
