Wow, what an opportunity. I hope the result is even better than you imagined.

Where are these being created? and if you wouldn't mind sharing, how much does this cost both in time and money? I would love to have a pair made for me so I'm very curious.

Why so much worry? It seems like shoes in this shape would go great with just about any kind of pants. You'll love'em.
May 23, 2011 at 4:55 pm
what fun!! I'm sure you will rock em.

My husband's dream is to have his own cordovan shoes made. For now, he'll have to stick to his Alden's.

Scott speaking as An English guy who has been wearing cordovan's for longer than I remember I am so pleased to hear about your shoe's sole. the current trend for thick chunky soles really is unfortunate.

There is something so liberating and nerve-wracking with a custom creation. I hear you when you wonder if your vision will become realized! Good luck!
May 23, 2011 at 7:32 pm
I'll be eagerly following your progress with this project and will be enjoying it by proxy.

Cordovan is the best color for shoes. It is elegant, versatile, and comes in a spectrum of beautiful shades. Please take a closeup of the leather.

WANT TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE A PAIR.
May 24, 2011 at 4:01 am
Amazing! My boyfriend loves to have one of those shoes…
May 24, 2011 at 4:27 am
which model do you choose?
May 24, 2011 at 7:36 am
That is so cool and super oldschool! Can't wait to see your new shoes!
Love Despite color
May 24, 2011 at 7:46 am
I can't believe that getting a pair of shoes generates such excitement – soooo many more important things in life!
May 24, 2011 at 8:41 am
O.K., the question we're all afraid to ask (or maybe you're not willing to post) is, "How much?"
May 24, 2011 at 8:44 am
Keep posting! This deeply interesting. A client that knows what he wants + great artisans + an exiting project.
May 24, 2011 at 4:50 pm
Horween leather rocks!
May 24, 2011 at 5:08 pm
You're sure to love them when they're done and you're sure to improve them for the next pair.
May 24, 2011 at 5:38 pm
Am I seeing that right? You went with color #4? I think you made the right choice. It is beautiful in person.
May 24, 2011 at 7:24 pm
I think I would have played around with some ready-made Aldens before jumping in to custom design. But I give you credit for knowing what you want. And you're a lot braver than I.
May 25, 2011 at 12:54 am
That's really great and i see that needs enormous talent like that!
May 25, 2011 at 9:49 am
looking forward to the result. i'm planning to have made some bespoke shoes for the next winter, but for know i still enjoy my rtw edward greens :-)

The color of that leather is exquisite!
May 25, 2011 at 9:01 pm
I love this! Does every customer get sent pictures of their shoes in progress?
May 26, 2011 at 5:47 am
well, if he makes shoes as well as you take pictures, you have nothing to worry about ;). I think it's kind of cool too that your get your own personalized shoe.
May 26, 2011 at 4:23 pm
Some of my Alden's are made out of cordovan (horse leather) and the soles are thicker compared to calfskins. Isn't in the nature of cordovan shoes to be chunkier?
May 27, 2011 at 11:29 pm
that's awesome! hope the shoes are better than expected!
May 28, 2011 at 5:12 am
can't wait to see the finished product… Dude, you are an inspiration!!
June 1, 2011 at 7:45 am
oooh~ This looks very interesting, how fun!
June 3, 2011 at 10:48 pm
I just invested in some Alden Cordovan Oxffords and I love them. I'm really interested to see your design.

…"a lot like making a photograph – technically, it's not that difficult"
That's a dangerous statement my friend.

That's not an easy job to do.
