|Pete's shoes right before shipping them off for bronzing|
Ordering the shoes on the website and shipping them in is easy. There are options for mounting and finishes. Pete's are loose with the antique finish; there are also option for bright and for a bit more pewter and porcelain, lots of different options to fit all the styles of shoes.

I was impressed with how carefully they were shipped they came back to me in an oversized box full of packing peanuts and wrapped. I liked that they took care of shipping it back carefully so it couldn't get damaged.
|Can you still tell the brand?|
The overall look of the shoe is amazing. They took the care to adjust and line up the straps, stand up the tongues and the back of the shoe nicely. I find it amazing the amount of details that come through; I can tell the difference between the fabric used in the shoe, and the logo of the shoe's brand is still there and legible. For the unmounted shoes, they have adhered felt to the bottoms to protect the finish of furniture or wherever they will be displayed from the metal scratching the surface. It wasn't an issue I had considered so I'm glad they did! They also put his name across the strap of his shoe since the toe wasn't conducive to it.
