A while ago David Kramer bought a pair of shoes from me. The shoes he bought is called 'David', yes I named the shoes after him, why? The 'David' is based on the classic vellie, which never quite went out of fashion in South Africa. All I did was refine the vellie and made it more modern.
To finish my David Kramer story... I told him that I have a piece of red patent leather if he was interested in having a pair made up. He said he would think about it. A day later he phoned me to say yes, he would like a red patent pair made up...and the rest is history.
