I was ordering my first pair on the Almond toe last, but after discussions with Riccardo we decided to round off the toe a bit, which came out really great. I know he has got a bunch of orders from people who want to have the same modification to the almond toe last after seeing my pair, and I think that Riccardo started suggesting it to some customers as well who have a hard time deciding between Classic round and Almond toe. I'm not sure what you mean with shortened round toe?

on your website you call it the shortened almond toe last

may you please post a top down photo of your two pairs of "rounded/shortened" almond toe lasted shoes?

Thanks!

A bit so yes! Heel part are different from 20's shoes though I believe, more curves.

what made you choose the almond short versus the classic round or the classic round short?

Fit. Almond toe and Perfetta are based on the same base last, which works better for my type of feets than the classic round and classic square lasts, which is based on another form. So much easier for Riccardo to make the modifications needed for a really good fit for me on those lasts.

Not necessarily. I like those a lot, though!

Thanks! Glad they are appreciated. I just received them as part of a 20 pair lot from an old friend. His Father passed away 10 years ago and he is just starting to go thru his home. Found a treasure trove of unworn and once worn 1950's footwear.

These are a size 10D.
