Not answering that one...long standing policy--don't speak ill of other shoemakers.
That said, I do and will talk about technique. What was it Winston Churchill said when he was confronted by a hideous old self-righteous crone? "I may, indeed, be drunk madam, but in the morning I shall be sober while you'll still be ugly." They can be made with the greatest of care...as I said a master shoemaker...but in the end they're still cement construction.
You do realize that even cliches are bored by you.
