Hi all, apologies for the complete lack of updates, I was traveling across the pond to the UK, France, Germany and Italy recently and didn’t find time to post anything. I did however find a pair of green classic car 576s in a size 13 at a Schuh’s in Edinburgh which had me chuffed as no one seemed to be carrying above an 11! So yeah.. updates and replies to emails will be coming shortly. Peace
