one of the pics from the website: the $50 off for first-time customers will be valid until april 16 to SF members, as we anticipate higher costs soon.

Are the lasts pictured on the website based on the customers' preferences? Some are rather ungainly at the toe.

Yes, they are all based on customers' preferences.

I want more pictures. Can you take some from the top straight down, side, insole, underneath, etc. and use a "normal" (50mm equivalent) focal length on the lens? It appears the pics on the site have been taken with a wide-angle lens (or zoomed-out setting) making the closest parts appear disproportionately large and distorting the pictures horribly. If you don't know what I'm talking about, just set the zoom to about mid-way and take the pictures from however far away is necessary.

The black double monks look very interesting, and I hope you can take more pics of those. If you want to have this project take off, a bunch of really good pictures would definitely do it.

Taking the photos in more natural light would help, too. I agree about the need for more pics. ... A nice selection would go a long way toward convincing me to give it a shot.

The black monks are mine, as well as one of the brown pairs (couldn't tell from the pics, not the chiseled toe one though). I'll take many pics when I get them, I'll do my best to get clear pictures from whatever angles you'd like. They're currently en route, so hopefully I'll have them soon!

Pictures will have to suffice, I'm a college student so needless to say I won't be making references to AE's and EG's and the whole alphabet soup of shoes we have here.

A friend of mine, who's a much more professional photographer than I am, took some additional photos before they were shipped out. I'll let you know when those go up. I'll probably replace the new photos w/the old ones, I agree that the lighting and the proportions are quite off.

Spencer, black double monks and the brown captoe are yours. All the diff shots of the brown captoes are from one pair of shoes.

I also want to mention that all the styles reflect the customers' preference. So if you see something you don't like (I've heard mentions of "ghastly toe," "unseemly last"), it only provides reason for you to come up w/a photo you really like and send it on...

this may be sort of a hairy request to fulfill, but i'd really like to see the pictures each customer emailed you next to the pictures of the shoes made by your shoemaker. or perhaps the brand name and style of the shoe to which your shoemaker paid homage. i'm also really looking forward to the pictures taken by your photographer. for what it's worth, i find it very useful to take pictures of shoes that have shoe trees in them--it tends to show more of the shoe's true shape.

your wish is my command.

these are stylistic guidance photos of the 3 pairs of shoes photographed on the site. take into account that there's different angling and lighting for the guidance photos and the end products.

1. brown captoe


2. black double monks


3. brown plain toe

When I receive my pairs I'll take some pictures with a 50mm prime.

Very interesting to note that the Prada design is actually quite a good replica on the website because the pics do tell the shape of the shoes. I cannot tell from the double monk straps though - needs another angle.
