Hi @kevenmee - any additional info you can share re: fitting issues? Lasts that do fit and sizes, as an example? I can try to help, but the general set-up for 3B last is it runs a bit large. Most trade down 1/2 size from standard (nevermind that there really is not a standard....) unless they are over size 11 - then stay the same. Most of my lasts fit larger over the instep than you would typically find in a US style last (like A/E) and this is available for making in...
Ha...I didn't realize FOK had started this! I thought it was for later.....but this model has always been built on 3B last: http://riderboot.com/lasts-sizes/ Usually this last is fit 1/2 size down from 'standard'.
Just popped in to look around and caught this. Not going to read the entire thread as it looks to be another pissing battle mostly, but - just so maybe someone learning from afar will notice - this comment could not be more wrong.Arch (heel-to-ball) is the most critical measure to long term foot health, not to mention proper fit.Most foot problems are caused by poor fitting shoes.....the amount of people who still sit and pinch and pull at the toes and declare 'these are...

Nice. If they can get that finishing across a whole run, that's one hell of a good looking make up.
Actually, these perfed wholecut patterns go back a long time.....here is from the Romano Martegani archives - 1980's. This is when a line builder named Bruno ???? (just can't remember the last name...want to say Paciotti but can't recall exactly) was doing Romano's lines. He was more known for creating platform shoes in the 70's, and then at the end of his career built Santoni's line before he took his pension. He was pretty important in the business though...he...
Always interesting looking at those old articles - we don't have much of that left in this business.I had always heard that Haas created Box calf...quick look shows a similar article, dateline 1912, also crediting the Haas Tannery. Interestingly, they also claimed credit for a tannage called 'White Calf'. Perhaps they were all cousins.One thing I do know is that it is very difficult - has been for quite a few years - to get good deliveries of black calf......except from...
EXACTLY!The manufacturer can file and handle all of the paperwork correctly........a retail store, however, is a different story. A retail cannot file the paperwork because they don't have the tag #'s TO file the paperwork - or the export license. The factory, yes.We do the same thing, and we always then handle the transaction thru one of our accounts/stores here in the US. This way the paperwork all lines up. The few times we shipped directly to a clients home, we...
It's sort of like speeding....everyone does it, sometimes you get pulled over - most the time you don't. But when you do, it gets expensive.Whether you want to believe it or not, it is illegal to import App1 products without a license, a permit and the proper CITES docs. And a retailer has no ability to file these docs.....a retailer wouldn't have the information to even file them #1, and #2 they have to be obtained - after a waiting period - in person. The laws for...
