True, it is only that the slope from vamp to tip is more convex.

say Mitteleuropean shoes are huge without understanding that most makers/models are actually cut pretty close to your feet shape and avoid any extension, making them rather small compared to many english and italian shoes.

Great example of how more can appear less. The extension is what is causing the slimmer appearance. Just like 2 men with identical waists; the taller man will appear slimmer.

These are beautiful. Is that their standard model and they have different finishes?
It seems like when I see corthays they only come in that style.

they do quite a few different models...probably a half a dozen RTW? These are the Arcas...pretty much their flagship shoe. If you get a chance..check out the Satans. I REALLY want to get my feet in a pair soon.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I don't think blobby is the correct term. It is more an absence of sharpness when looking at the lateral and medial sides forepart / toebox. For instance when you look at the side view of the shoe you will notice on the lateral side that the line conecting toe point to the 5th phalanx (distal & proximal: little toe & a bit more) that there is a pronounced bulge. The line is not straight but infact convex. On certain other shoes this line is straighter or flat. This is a design element and doesn't mean the shoe is blobby or fat etc. However it may provide a little more vertical little toe room for a shoe that is cut very tight horizontally. This is somewhat like cutting a higher toebox.
Edit :Sorry if this is not clear. I would need photoshop to explain clearly

iirc, the 002 is more pleasing to the eye and easier to fit?

any insights(from all) on this front?

I like the 002 more than the 001. I had to size down by 1/2 for the 002.

this is the 001 last...and pardon me for speaking for spoodle...i may be wrong...but this is the same leather/color/last as mine, and thats exactly how mine looked. The coloring from the toe to the vamp is nothing short of beautiful.

I have a pair. Probably my least favorite shoes I am sorry to say. I love the styling, but I find them too light and flimsy. The leather is very thin. I don't have high hopes for their longevity.

They are goodyear welted, not blake stitched.

The leathers do crease, Trust me. I have had my pair for a few years. I can already see where I cam going to begin to develop cracks.

Thanks for these information.

Does the shoe fits you well? Creasing due to roomy toebox? My old one not on sales crease less than my C&J..

Just want to find out more and learn as I am going to have major choe purchase soon.
