I have a last (to have and to hold). A last that fits as about 10 pairs of shoes do prove. And on top of it, a last that is aesthetically pleasing.But the right last, whether it's bespoke or ready-to-wear, is far more important for the satisfaction a pair of shoes will give than the construction method. So, if I have to make a decision between a better construction and an inferior fitting last or an inferior construction and a better last, I would go for the fit any time.
