I am going to leave my little rant below here on my homepage. Many people have given me congrats for coming right out and saying this. And I stand by it 100%
I am not Walmart, or Amazon.com. They give you low quality, but they give it to you cheap and fast. I'll speed things up. But, I won't give you crap. I don't have 30,000 employees or sales greater than the GNP of some small countries. I am ONE man who makes good handmade shoes. If you don't want to wait for something that is hand made, goodbye, and go back to Walmart. Sorry for the rant. I do my best. It's been a long hard year.
Please note our shipping charges, methods and policies HAVE CHANGED AS OF MAY 01, 2013 Visit the "our policies" link to view.

I prefer email over phone calls as I can review and print messages.
