Love Tarsal straps. What do they cost in BUD?

Beautiful gladiators Vass .... it seems to me that the name he invented Bestetti about 4 years ago .... is there? But beyond these details is always a fantastic model.

In fact, my first bespoke will be just one of Bestetti gladiators. I found her on the web these photos.

 

 

 



But I do not really know whether to do it in two colors. Or do it all in a single color.

What do you think is better? Two colors like these? Or one color only?

Tomorrow I have an appointment with Bestetti for my first bespoke. I'm very excited!

This style has been known for the last 100 years or so as a "d'Annunzio", named after Gabriele d'Annunzio, Prince of Montenevoso (1863-1938), the poet and last of the great Latin lovers

Now poor old Signor d'Annunzio got usurped by that soft porn trash: "Spartacus - Blood and Sand"

Gianni, the model is set apart by its tarsal strap so it needs no additional decorations. Single leather type, one colour, small broguing (if at all) would ensure that it's not too flashy.

Actually, the Tarsal Strap style has been around much longer than 100 years and pre-dates Gabriele d'Annunzio.

This painting, "The Ball on Shipboard" by James Tissot is from 1874. That dapper gentleman is wearing a wonderful pair in white and cream.



AND, the style had already been around for quite a while even before this.

The red reptile and calf pair is unbelievable. If you have a small shoe collection, go with the all calf in similar tones. If you have a large collection, DEFINITELY go for the exotics.

Thank you very much for the advice .. will follow them willingly ... now I'm going to Bestetti .. but am still not sure whether to do it in one color or two colors.

Of course, this image is fantastic. But it is already a Gladiators? The two colors in the photo are beautiful, really. And your advice I will keep well in mind.

You larger image of this you posted? I would like to see it better.

Bestetti's model is his particular vision of the basic design, so other versions will vary a bit. Note that Bestetti's model has the very slight squaring of the toe at the tip... very Italian in design. This, however, is a much earlier version of the style.

Here's the pic made larger...

I came across a pair of these some time ago in a thrift shop - I guess you could say it was the English interpretation of the style: double-soled with white suede and a textured calf leather for a more country look. Crockett & Jones for Barneys NY.

nice find & thanks for sharing. C&J has done some excellent Vintage Style remakes over the years. Ventilated spectators, tarsal strips, all the good stuff.

Thank you for your help. I just got out Bestetti and as usual it always amazes me . Its lines and its finish is really an evolution towards excellence. This will be my first bespoke . In Bestetti take measures was really professional . He asked me everything. From how I eat to what magus . He did it to see if my feet are subject to increases or decreases in volume due to the power supply. Say I have a lot of water retention.

 

 


Eventually I will make a two-tone gladiators like this. Dark brown and tobacco ...

 

 

 

what do you think ?

 

For exotic skins there will be time . I'll try to keep you informed on the development of bespoke shoe .

I have seen many of my clients bespoke shoes . However, its finish, its proportions , its ability to create new models and its comforts are unique.

Today I really was enchanted by the finish . When I bought my first pair of Bestetti in MTO was already fantastic. But today I think he exceeded once again.

 

I can not wait to go to the next step. Now Betsetti should give his best to create a form suitable to my flat feet!
