Thanks,,, and its still a semi bespoke! I guess excellent value for money. Do you think it would be the standard way of dealing with the issue by makers.

Yeah, I have other pairs made for me with similar solution, and also get a similar creasing. He did build these up a bit to much too, so some excess leather that makes the crease dimple more than it need to.

Thanks! It's a modified Almond toe last, with the toe rounded of a bit so less pointy.

hi there, me have a question about the construction, the picture above is from a sf member.

does it mean the only difference between the norwegian welted consturction and reverse welted construction is that, the reverse welted construction uses gemming, according to the picture??? I can't find anything else different(sorry, currently not able to read Japanese text...)

the labeling of the different types of construction here is dubious at best. They label the bottom right construction "bentivegna" and that is 100% incorrect. Bentivegna has welt outside the uppers. Either top right or bottom left shows that. Can't even clearly see what exactly the differnce is between those two, as they are drawings, rather than photos.

Either top left or bottom right is Norvegese... no welt. On top left you can clearly see the side stitch goes into a feather, but in bottom right, we can't see how the bottom layer of uppers attaches to footbed. Not clearly saying it is "glued", but not clearly sewn, either.

They have top right labeled "norwegian welted", but there is no welt in norvegese/ norwegian construction, so that is an oxymoronic labeling.

For reference, top left is the "Norvegese construction" we see from top makers, Saint Crispin, Santoni, Lattanzi and others.
Top right is "Bentivegna" or "Goyser" from Vass, Santoni, Lattanzi, etc.

The other 2 constructions seem to be subtle variations of them, but it is not clear if they indicate a "gemming (bottom left) or how the uppers are connected to the insole (bottom right),

Isshy there's English translation of the name of the construction if you blow up the picture.

Bentivenga is Norwegian with welt if I remember correctly, the other name is goyser welted in Vash-speak.

The reverse welted construction is not a good representation as most reverse welted or storm welted shoes do not have the inseam thread show up on the upper. But all flavors of Norwegian construction will have inseam thread show in the upper, with or without braiding.

Closer to the original incarnation of double monks than most contemporary reincarnations.
