Bestitti gladiator isn't exactly just an oxford with ball straps. The facing has an extra horizontal line down to the welt compare to the ball strap oxfords.

And while I went to Bestetti to take measures for my first bespoke Gladiators I withdrew my first pair of shoes Bestetti MTO. I brought it to him for rifagli the trick. This is the model with flower in Balmoral tip.

I must say I'm really very comfortable. Although I have flat feet.

  And then Bestetti uses only French calfskin ... so the best you can have as quality. And I must say that most older Balmoral this the more I like. Then his level of finish I think is unbeatable today.

You often see a lot of photos of bespoke shoes that are beautiful. It finishes are always in the picture, wonderful. Then maybe instead when you see the same shoes the photo in reality it makes you faint. This is because the photo is much better than the reality. Do not you ever? But with Bestetti it happened to me the opposite. His shoes and his finishes are truly a sight in reality.

 

 

 

 

 

 



What do you think?

Looking good. Not as aggressive as the sample bespoke, which is good.

Did you check for excess room on your right vamp?

very beautiful shoes!!  waiting for the gladiators with anticipation:happy:

 

btw try not to cover the vamp area with wax so no cracking(color lighten) is visible and use a tooth pic to clean the brogueing this ll make them look as new (and stay) for longer!!

And thanks for telling me the space ... do not worry ... but it's a MTO .. and fit in with the less I were tight ... having flat feet when I give the weight spread out a lot ... and this is fit for the best compromise ... if you notice even the neck is soft ...

thanks for the compliments ... for polishing in wamp is normal I think there are some cracks ... but as I learned Bestetti .. before using the cream and then the wax there are far fewer cracks .. . and the polish does not come off ...

And you like the shiny? You have a special ... because I have seen on youtube polish his military boots and are a true mirror

thanks for your response. But your have a special technique? It takes me about 30 minutes per pair ... and how much you use? Been a faster technique?

Look at another picture of the same Gladiators Bestetti I had posted the last few days. it's just another shot. The colors are the same. And then the chisel tip is absolutely great.

What do you think? Do you think I do well to make these colors?
To me those two colors together are really crazy...

I can not wait to get his shoe test.

For hi end shoes (rtw-mto-bespoke from good manufacturers or artisans like Bestetti )where the leather is really smooth only for mirror shinning the toe area takes about 10 minutes per pair generally! according to the videos on youtube i use  a lot more wax than the tiny dot they recommend, most of the time between half and full  fingerprint!!

 

btw the lower the room temperature they easier to build the mirror shine!!

 

 A useful trick i found lately is to use one time water and one time pure alcohol as i do the circular motion on the wax to achieve the mirror effect!! helps wax solidify a lot faster

Ok .. thanks for the advice ... now experiment with your technique ... I will see how it is ... and above all, I'll see if I can get your results.

Anyway, I agree that the Gladietor with those two brown is the most beautiful ... I'll keep you updated on developments with the various steps of my first bespoke.

They´re sold in Oslo. Not sure I can promote the store not being an official affiliate here, but try googling "Sassetti Oslo" for price and contact form if interested
