Robert Land makes them. I think his are available through Fair Oaks.

Or look him up on Google.

Missouri Boot & Shoe also makes them.

Here's Robert Lands site.

He only made a few pair but Nick Sekela's blew everyone elses out of the water. Shoot him an email, perhaps he will make them again.

My endeavours into shoe making was purely for fun, as I found it to be too labor intensive to turn them around in a reasonable time frame. Only people that were close to me, knew that there was no way for me to produce them at a moderate price and quick turn around without substantially reducing the details. To know that, and suggest me as a source is done with pure sarcasm.

For my money, you can't beat Robert Land's price. I don't know how he does it.

I am, &c,

I'm anxiously awaiting a pair of Mr. Lands English import shoes.
I have shoes from Mattimore, and MB&S. Can't wait to compare Mr. Lands product.
From what I've heard I won't be dissapointed.

I recieved my shoes. they are top notch. The fit, and finish are wonderful.
Turn around time was 9 days, that's with Mr. Land adding hobnails. That's unbelieveable.

"For my money, you can't beat Robert Land's price. I don't know how he does it."

He takes a modest profit, which people find hard to believe. Unless its highly marked up it must be junk right?
