Beautiful shoes, Foster & Sons.
I want to ask a question that was raised by member MoneyWellSpent in the Allen Edmonds thread. This is not to denigrate any work or members on here, but I always hear about how ugly Allen Edmonds' short caps are, yet, as is the case with Foster's, there is widespread approval...even praise for the small cap. I would like to know if there are any members on here who like the small cap on the Foster shoe but loathe the small cap on the Allen Edmonds shoe. If so, can you please explain why you feel this way? Thanks in advance, and again, Beautiful shoes Foster & Sons.
Is it really a small cap, though? Half of the pictures make it look that way, but the others look like there's more coverage. I wonder if this may be lens distortion.
I assume it has to be a smaller cap based on Foster and Son's response to the original comment.
The cap is quite small though there may also be some lens distortion. I happen to quite like the short toe cap look myself and admire the Allen Edmonds brand greatly too, it is no mean feat to maintain a US production facility in this day and age.

I don't think you can look at any one attribute of a shoe and make a fair comparison. I think the legacy of a lot of shoemakers stems from their ability to make everything flow well together. So, I don't think it is fair to say, I don't like short caps, because a short cap can work in one context and not another. To me I see a lot of problems with AE's, but that's besides the point.
Interesting and good to know, thanks.
