Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 322

post #4816 of 20764
Moo, You've been stepping it up lately. However, almost all of your recent posts are on my "never buy" list. I can appreciate the quality, but not the styling. To each his own.

[quote=isshinryu101;4287297]A Testoni (Amedio Testoni line) calf & croc split toes. Again, not your everyday SF Shoe Porn pics, but perfect for a job interview or funeral!

I wouldn't wear these to an interview (for a business 9-5 job) or a funeral. But I would wear the soles off checking out jazz clubs and concerts. Where did you find these?

Does anyone know if G&G (these are my first pair) does something different with their construction? These feel almost as if they have a Nike Air cushioning system in them. I have never felt this in any other shoes (Alden, Vass, Lobb, etc.)

Thanks, and you are right.

Just dipping my foot into the "higher end" shoe pool where I can on a budget.

Totally agree with you. I love the Lobb 7000 last as it can accommodate 3 various orthotics that I rotate between. My G&Gs are superior in terms of comfort. After an hour of wearing them I dont even notice them.

What's a budget?

I think in one of the photos on the Delos website you can see how he works on a large block of wood (I dont see any benefits from carving and shaping a cubic block compared to carving and shaping something that requires a bit less of carpenter work).
I think Bengal Stripe can educate us here better than I though.
Ugolini makes only bespoke, there was no last or something to try on, it was made according to my instructions/imaginations.
The modification of rtw lasts is often quite limited, Saint Crispin's for example does it on request, but only at the instep and toebox and of course they wont do anything with the shape...



Btw. I know bespoke clients who want to see a 41 on their lasts because they are convinced that it's their size.
Shoe maker has to order whatever raw last he needs (it's 2 sizes different or so) for that client with a stamped 41. Point.
Thanks for explanations.
