Interesting thought. The #1 last seems as if it was designed for my foot. It fits me so damn well that my burgundy shell Leeds get a lot of use in my rotation, much more than the shell MacNeil. The shoe that I keep going back to is the Leeds in that dark brown shell, the same color as the recent Townley's.
Would that makeup simply be a standard custom shoe order?
Yes it would be. And I understand exactly what you are saying although I don't know how the MacNeil fits the 1 last fits me pretty darn well too which is why I did what your thinking about. Outdoors:
And when you do a custom shoe you also get your choice of soles. I went with the natural thinking if I didn't like it easy enough to darken it. And I likely will with chili.
