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.

Thanks guys. I'll update when I get my Japanese shoes. Have a huge difficulty getting the three-piece trees out. I regret asking for them. Need to find an easier way of getting them out. Tips?

Nutcracker, how do Bestetti's shoes compare with those gorgeous Japanese stuff you've been putting up?

Beautiful shoes congratulations, maybe try a thinner pair of socks if you like socks with stripes in them then Falke do some excellent socks which are much finer.
