Gaziano & Girling x J.FitzPatrick Footwear Sample Sale

samplesale2017
The yearly collaborative sample sale between Gaziano & Girling and J.FitzPatrick has officially been set and it is at the end of this month, in exactly 3 weeks time.

As always this will be an in-store, first come first serve sale located at the The Shoe Snob Showroom in Soho, London on the Friday and Saturday listed.

What has changed this year are the hours on the Saturday, this time closing much earlier as we were always left twiddling our thumbs from about 2-3pm onward. So, do take note of that and make sure to arrive between the hours listed.

  • J.FitzPatrick Prices starting from £100 upwards
  • Gaziano & Girling prices starting from £250 upwards

For all of those able to get to London on that weekend, we look forward to seeing you there!

****AND REMEMBER, THERE ARE NO PRESALES BEFORE THE EVENT NOR ANY LISTING OF WHAT WILL BE THERE SO PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL UP ASKING THESE QUESTIONS.  AND ALL SALES ARE FINAL. THANK YOU. ****

Friday the 24th of February – 8am to 6pm

Saturday the 25th of February – 10am – 3pm

    In the days of the internet and we don’t have an inventory of what’s up for sale. From an internet blog, and a company that sells online. Creating hype or destroying it?

      id save your money, hard leather soled goodyear welted shoes are an arcane shoe construction method clung to for the sake of ‘tradition’. Makes a horrible heavy, inflexible shoe with no shock absorption. Exactly the opposite of what you want in a shoe! Just terrible.

        What a load of rubbish

        Than do not buy it. Why don’t you go to China and purchase a chip pair.

          Your all in a bubble of delusion fed by the industry and those that feed off it (PR/bloggers/advertising agencies etc.) Its all about cash at the end of the day. Very sad.

          • Ray

            You’ve obviously not worn any good quality shoes

            ive worn crocket and jones mainly which are the English GW industry standard. also JM Weston and have tried many others as well. the method of construction is terrible in itself. people who talk about tradition don’t realise this method of shoemaking is relatively recently invented post industrial age and ontop of this the techniques have been changed considerably in the last 20/30 years (I wont go into the whole rabbit warren around ‘gemming’). a truly hand made shoe is quite different in terms of construction but this has become a niche now for the super rich at ~£3000 a pop.
            advantages of GW: shoes last longer / look pretty good. disadvantages: uncomfortable as hell which isn’t a price worth paying in my book. if you want to take on this trade off be my guest. Just my 2c.

      No sample sale ever has a inventory list…ever. And this is not a sample sale for online. It’s in-store only. Hype is for those that know what to expect.

        Is it possible to have some photographs of the shoes on the shelves, if an inventory is not possible? Tks
