The Shoe That Defines Me

(Video by James Cole, for WatchAnish)

Dear Readers,

Here is a video I made as a profile to really explain how I came to be where I am and why I chose that route. I hope that you all enjoy it. To enlarge, simply click on the bottom right emblem on the screen.

Things are a bit less manic now that I have had my launch and after this weekend (pics will be up soon), I will be cracking down on finishing all of my pre-order shining (some of which have still yet to arrive but will be doing so on Monday). I thank all of you for your patience and understanding and know that I will be in contact soon to send off your shoes.

For those waiting for my shoes to be put on the G&H website in order to get a pair, we are having some logistic issues as they have just moved their “online center (and inventory)” to a city a few hours from London. Until that time, I am happy to accept orders through my company, through Paypal should you wish.

I will be away this weekend for some much deserved relaxation so emails and comments won’t be attended to until Monday.

Thank you all and enjoy the rest of your week!

    Justin, you are truly a fantastic ambassador for the craft.

    Every thing you had to say was so interesting but ruined by that overpowering background music. I tried to hang onto every word but lost so much of your shoe passion by somebody else’s music passion. Please reissue it either without the music or greatly tuned down. It’s you we want on The Shoe Snob blog not Liberace tickling the ivories!

    Best regards,

    Gotta agree with J there! Your shoes look great in a natural setting.

    Any idea when that webstore is coming?
