Shoes that look better with age...

Recommended Posts

I've been in tokyo for a few days and had a look at viberg engineers in the warehouse store and Buco's in the real mccoys store... I gotta say those Buco's are damn nice. Unless White's and Bakers can tempt me in the next year or so, I think I will have to stump up the crazy cash for those.

The vibergs didn't do much for me, I'm glad I gave up on the group buy.

the Vibergs posted above didn't do a thing for me Fresco, so I get what your saying. But their was a picture of a Viberg Engineer next to a Service boot, and that particular pair of Viberg Engineer's were sweet!

I finally got my Road Champs this week and I am in love with them. Pictures will come up soon!

man, sizing was a bit tricky! i talked with kyle (rancourt) via email a few times concerning size. i measured my feet, even, and sent the measurements to him and he told me what size to get...like a fool i disregarded his advice and sized down half a size. he rec 11.5 (my right foot is a true 11.5, my left a true 11). for comparison's sake, i wear 11.5 in quoddy bluchers. since they're loafers, though, i thought i should size down half a size because there are no laces...wrong. best to go true to size, if not half a size up (to account for socks). my right foot was waaay too snug with thin uniqlo socks on. so, i told kyle and he was kind enough to take the right shoe back and stretch it out to an 11.5 all for the cost of shipping back to maine. the shoes fit perfectly now and you really can't notice that one is slightly larger that the other. of note, the leather is buttery soft and will likely stretch a bit from wear, also you should be able to have them stretched at any decent cobbler. hope this helps!

Are those rancourts? How did u size them?

hey guys, hopefully this is the right thread to post my question..

just curious is there such a thing as re-dyeing your suede shoes?

if so, how do I do it? just simply buy the dye or do I need to go to shoe cobbler for the re-dye?

thanks guys!

I'm really grateful I bought these off the internet, I would never have bought them in a shop because they were killing my ankles from the second I put them on. They have softened up beautifully by now.

The Yuketen mocs are great. I picked up the green chromexcel version from Woodlands a while back.

I just got these a few days ago, but only got around to taking decent pictures today. They already have a lot of age on them (70 years give or take a few), but I'll be the only one putting any wear into them.

Anyone have experience in shining Chromexcel? Can I do it just like a regular shoe?
