 You do realize cosmetics has little to do with the quality of the leather upper, ya?
There are creepy sartorial pictures and then there are people of Walmart pictures; not the same thing. Wrong threak.
Yes. Celastica is the proper term. It's not exactly plastic but as you said its celluloid based. So is ping pong ball celluloid based.JL uses celastica for heel counter and toe boxes.EG, G&G both use celasrixa at toe boxes only
Just wear whatever shoes you want. But some shoes look much better than others. And don't believe anyone who tells you leather outsoles works well in wet/rainy conditions; it doesn't. Your feet will be so wet even in storm welt leather sole shoes. Don't wear leather sole shoes in inclement weather conditions. And hand welted shoes can be made to have thinner and more elegant sole than any cemented or Blake stitched shoes.
Manggings anyone?
Reminded me of certain types of lingerie....
Depends on how much you prefer heat form plastic toe box and heel counters. If you don't want man made materials inside the guts of your shoes then you should go for Vass.
I find the last several posts very disturbing. Someone please post some brand whoring comments and sponsors pictures.
Bespoke isn't always expensive unless you talking to either the top makers or the top luxury brands.For example, Trickers charges £1,500, Vass charges €600, many Eastern European makers charges around €1,000, and some Italian makers charges less than €1,500. And some upstart Japanese makers have prices notably lower than the west end firms.Not all bespoke work is done at JL, JLP, Berluti type prices.
Made to order? Thought that's been around for a long time along with semi bespoke and full bespoke. I think lasbar has some Gomez shoes. Or it's rjman. Or some other French forum members. If you are truly interested, just talk to the maker directly; you won't find much info on the forum.
