Hello

I have just found out that SOF offers now ATS shoes: http://www.sofmilitary.co.uk/womens-ats ... ct,14390,1
I remember that some time ago they were offering only US female shoes replicas.
So, I was a bit surprised.
But I am not pretty sure about SOF products quality - have you already seen them?

Thank you!

Blanka

Look at the SOF pic, the heel looks a bit too high, the front of the shoe is a slightly higher dome and the colour is a bit too dark. Cut looks slightly different too but could be the perspective?

The correct polish may make a difference to the colour but the toe does look too pointed.

I don't think polish would help too much, originals are a much lighter shade of brown/tan.

The front of the toe cap is too tall, the cap should arc down to the front of the shoe.

Sadly Jens originals are stored away in a cupboard somewhere otherwise I'd get them out for a direct comparison.

I agree. The shoes look to me a bit different then they should look like.
I must admit I prefer vintage 1940s brown shoes of much more similar shape and colour.
