Maftei's site seems to be down. Here is another picture of the same shoe taken from "claymoorlist":In Vienna they call the style "Archduke Johann". It is a 'half-cut' shoe with a seam down the centre line and another seam down the heel.If you want to, you can eliminate the heel seam, then you have a crescent-shaped whole-cut piece, which will get closed down the centre line. It will be pretty wasteful as far as leather is concerned, but it is perfectly doable.
