(13th May 2016)
Hi Allan,
Thank you and extremely pleased and delighted with the shoes, wearing the business ones today with my Hackett Suit and looks great. I love the attention to detail, the soles are very impressive too, feel snug on first outing but will I know soon give to my foot and I can tell already just how comfy they are.

Dear Allan,
Thank you for the masterpieces you have crafted, very well received, and beyond all expectations. I've never had or even seen a pair of shoes made to such an extremely high standard.
(15th April 2016)

 Hey Allan!!
I got the shoes last week, and I put them on for the first time last night when I went to the casino & bar, They are Absolutely Perfect!!!!! Omg I love them!! I think these are a little more elevated than my last pair (which I love)!!! I had  my shoe smith put this (Goodyear rubber) bottoms on the soul and heel to protect the leather. It's Amazing!! 
Again Allan they are perfect!! Keep my size in your computer, and the elevated amount as well cause I'm going to order another pair, I just need to pick another style out.
Fabulous work Allan!!!!! Even my shoe smith complemented on the workmen ship!!!
(10th April 2016)
Shoes came in perfect timing, really loved them. They were excellent dancing shoes as well. Thanks again for everything.😄
Take care
(2nd April 2016)
Two weeks from our last email and we received the shoes yesterday!!!
First, thank you for shipping the shoes expedited to me. 
Second, we will be purchasing shoes in August for the Fall.
Third, I can't express how much I appreciate your fast service for a well crafted hand made product!!!

(1st April 2016)
Hello, stumbled upon your website.  Your shoes look amazing and the craftsmanship is quite exquisite!  I look forward to ordering my first pair someday.  Thank you
(31st March 2016)
Allan!  Wow man I am completely blown away at how tremendously awesome the shoes are.  They arrived at my folks house and they brought them to my place last night.  They are truly the perfect wedding shoe in every way.  I love the color, fit, and feel like a new man in them.  Without a doubt the finest pair of shoes I have ever owned.  I just wanted to send you my thanks and appreciation for working with me and for all of the hard work you and your team put in.  I have been bragging about how excited I have been and how truly awesome the whole experience has been.  I can't wait to get my next pair soon.  I hope you are well this week and thank you again for everything.  Long live Don's Footwear!

I'm very grateful for the MST Classic 512 shoes you handcrafted for me. They were very comfortable to wear on my wedding day and  I owe that pleasant experience on the most important day of my life to you. I was able to dance in them for 2 hours and they felt like sport shoes.  They also looked very nice with the tuxedo and received many compliments.
(17th Feb 2016)
Hi Don -
I've bought a pair of shoes from you before. They are the best pair of shoes I've ever owned. Thank you for a great product.
