Cushioned soles are not, as it changes your gait significantly.

Arch support is great, as long as it doesn't over compensate. You don't necessarily want to walk with a huge bump under your arch; it will be very uncomfortable.

Oh and having lower arch is not as bad as it sounds.

that is relieving to hear~ never noticed the low arch issue until I bought some dress shoes, but guess I will be fine~

Very interesting. Bontoni (at Wilkes Bashford) told me that Kiton copied their design although I always expected it was the other way around. Here is the Bontoni.

The Kiton is identical.

I haven't seen it IRL before either, though I've seen pics of Marcell Mrsan of Koronya trying it. To only glue the waist is pretty common, but to Blake stitch it is obviously not.
Whether or not barefoot running is great or not I'm not going to get into, so many different opinions about that, both from experts and those who tried it.

Yes too much arch support for someone with very low arch is probably not the most comfortable.

All people have different feet, and different heights of archs, so you're right that low archs doesn't necessarily means problem. But when they get too flat, especially when the feet are flattening themselves, it's not the best.
Like he does with his pegged waists he do the welt all the way back to the heel. This means that at the waist he probably almost must stitch the Blake stitch over the welt seam, I guess.

I don't remember how SC:s arch support is (was a while since I tried them, don't own shoes from them) but know they have good support too. Do think that Riccardos stiffener goes further front though.


That's why I am curious; the blake stitching seems likely go through some part of inseaming while pegged waist, at least by SC, have wooden pegs barely touching the insole.

 

How is Bestetti handling all the volume?  He got several people working for him at his workshop?

He only has two working for him, and he is struggling a lot to keep up with orders and e-mails. He has grown too much too fast I guess. So those who order from him have to have patience, you will get responses to your e-mail and you will get your shoes (which will be great), but it will take time.

They do look identical. Unfortunately I don't have an answer for you. I know AM no longer works with Kiton

^^^ According to Antonio he was first. It's a lovely model, no wonder Bontoni (if they now did) and also Magnanni has copied it. I actually did a version myself with the Italian/Swedish brand Italigente, some tweaks like a different medallion but Antonio's version (which I own myself) was the model for it:
