When will you receive them?
Received them today. Absolutely stunning. I have a lot of shoes, and these really take the icing off the cake. Finishing and last are impeccable. IMHO, I think it trumps many English bespoke shoemakers whose shoes I've handled etc.
I was expecting the shoes to fit tight because it's so aggressive. Was in for a huge surprise. Bestetti modified the last such that the front is actually extremely comfortable given I have a wide forefoot (Could have gone a little smaller though. I think he overcompensated slightly, but it's not a deal-breaker). The arch-support was superb.
Here it is, compared with Vass' U last.
