What can I say??? I love Wallabees big time, but these days they're made in China, and although they are trying (as far as I've read) to construct them on the original lasts, they just can't get anywhere near the quality that Padmore and Barnes did by hand, back in the day. Excuse the dodgey camera phone pic – P&B Irish Wallys have that low profile toe box that give a really snug fit, plus the range of leathers and suedes they had back on offer those days were great...



Keep an eye out on ebay, especially for the insole print which will indicate Irish made...



Plus if you bid on P&Bs you might outbid me and save me some coin haha!

Anything with the name Padmore in it has to be quality.................

Cheers AFTRMTH and Monday.....as you know, denim and shoes are pretty addictive and make the wallet light! WANTS beats NEEDS in this case...I'm kinda looking forward to winter so I can get em back in rotation.

My new Navy Canvas Torpedo's....worn only 5 time so far with great fading in jawnz rub areas.

If I knew Clarks were this comfortable, I would have purchased them long ago....

I noticed that crisone recently got some light tan Wallabees. Does anyone know of a UK source for these (Clarks only stock the black and chocolate)?
