My dad is quite good at some of these things, but not a chance he did this or would even try! No, these were sent to Lattanzi in Italy. He requested a few things that are normally NOT done and I think they turned out great. He requested the recessed toe-plates and they are actually inscribed/embossed "S. Lattanzi" which I thought was a nice touch.

I am sure the uppers are quite nice, too, but I have not gotten a photo of those yet. If I get them I will add them to my post.
Since he just returned from CA after visiting with his doctors and found that he has very advanced osteoarthritis, especially in his injury riddled feet, it is highly unlikely he will ever wear these now. It is already almost impossible for him to wear dress shoes. It is his curse in life, to love something that he really cannot enjoy for himself. He will likely list them after admiring them for a bit.
A pic of the uppers if possible, just to see what style of shoe it is.
