Size is off. Too long or too narrow, metatarsal joint doesnt line up with shoes.
Got a reply in less then 24h and the shoes will be ready in 6 weeks, total cost including shipping and lasted trees, £380, €470 or 616 dollars. Great value! However they said that sunken metal toe taps can only be done on the double tapering to single sole. Does anyone know there reason for this? I know G&G does it on their single soles for example.
I think the U last is sleek, but not "too sleek". I mean, I could say the same for the F last then - "too clunky". The F last is timeless, yes, but the U last is just as beautiful. There are so many examples of shoes on the U last that have turned out to be stellar here. Just because the U last didn't work for you doesn't mean it won't for him.
This sounds to me like preaching a religion: "There is no god but jesus!!!!!111111".
