Coming Soon!!!!.... New Whydah Shoe

14 posts in this topic

So I have been working with a shoe designer and maker from Europe and after many late nights talking back and forth we came up with this. We are still working out the details of the final price and finding the best shipping method. They are coming from his shoemaker in Thailand and the shipping from there is not the best dollar wise. Worst case scenario these will have to be ordered in larger/bulk orders and shipped to me and then I would have to ship them out to the individual buyers. The shoe is a rough out with a stacked leather heel, hand butt stitching and straight lasted the latches are left a bit wider so buyers will be able to choose their own buckle size. This is his first time selling in the U.S and worried about the market so I am throwing this out to see how the interest might be in this shoe.

Right now its looking to be around the $220 mark but thats not set in stone a lot of that will depend on the shoemakers time on each set, the pair in the pics are the prototype so they took a bit longer to make.

Okay so we worked out all the kinks... The shoe price is $200 ou the door with a 1-2 week turnaround after the orders are placed. Due to the shoe being hand stitched and the shoemaker having to bring in assistance for this process there is a minimum order of 15 pair, these get shipped by freight to me and i ship them out to the individual customers. Feel free to look me up on Facebook ( Christopher Bell) if you have any questions about sizes or orders etc. If the moderators want to move this to the proper thread please do. Thank you..

Will they run in half sizes? I wear a 10.5 and have wide feet.

And...I'll move this to the Thieves Market as it's a run for sale.

Thank you for the move. I will check into the half sizes and also width as well just so we know all our options. Any questions will have a bit of a delay on the answers due to time zone differences.

So as for the sizes all U.S sizes get converted over to E.U sizes which means most half sizes get rounded up.

Wow, nice.

We (at the Whydah Pirate Museum) kinda wish you had at least talked with us about this first... we've been working on having official, exclusive replicas of our artifacts created... but nice job. I might even order a pair from you! LOL.

Do you have any pictures of the inside of the shoe? I am curious whether the stitching on the seam is piercing the inside of the shoe. I am not sure what it is, but something does not look quite right even though these shoes look great overall. I am just trying to verify whether this is butt-stitched or made to look like it is butt-stitched. Thanks!

The shoes are officially for sale on the maker and owners web site http://www.ms-re-enactorsshop.com/, as of right now im not sure if there is a minimum order, I have no stock or interest in the business I just brought the shoe to his attention discussed a few details with him and there was some talk of there being a minimum order and once that order was reached the shoes being sent to me in freight and me shipping them out to buyers via standard shipping. Any questions on the shoe or its construction or shipping should be sent to him through his web site.

Are they making these for women as well as men?

I don't believe they are specifically targeted to either sex, its mostly based on size chart conversion.

I had spoken to Christopher Macort over the phone about it during a long conversation we had about proper Japaning of firearms. Is there any legal issue that I need to relay to the actual maker of the shoe?

According to what I have been told these are hand butt stitched.
