What's with the 1990s/70s blunt fronts?

If you do a special order it will run ~$450, make sure you request wheeling detail on the welt as it is no longer standard.
They look good in that blue.

For me, it is the perfect shoe for 90% of all occasions.
Very nice Moo. I think my resistance to Cordovan has pretty much evaporated. Just shoot me if I start liking tasselled loafers though

Lovely (and the Dover's).

I really like the finishing.

These look very sleek for a derby. Does the heel shape have any value beyond the aesthetic?

All the other lasts werent sized or anything if IIRC.

So my apologies go to ThinkDerm here .

They were second-hand off eBay, so I have no idea. And oops, they're actually made for Gordon Scott (of Bond Street), not Gordon Rush.

it happens that the lastmaker stamps them with the size. that's not unusual.

it's for orthopedic reasons. very common in the austro-hungarian bespoke tradition...

That's what's known as a Thomas heel. It is supposed to prevent pronation--walking the shoe to the inside (medial side). It doesn't always have that severe a "corner" on the lateral side. That seems a bit unstable to me but I could be wrong.
