Damn Fulb those are mouth watering. ... tht they were GGs first look. Exclusive or HG?

umm.. good presentation too

The moore is now part of the Exclusive range. When I ordered them this model was not part of any range. So it is a full MTO with HG finish.
IMO this model suit very well the 106 last which is quiet pointy .
Anyway I love them and they are now so comfortable to wear. I think the leather (a special very old stock they received when I ordered them - lucky me) is for a lot.
The photo was taken last week and I probably worn this shoes about 25 times since I get them - incredible leather quality.

more pics of the 106?

Those are not mine it was the Bourne. Probably the best model to see well the 106 last.

The Moore model is now offered on the 724 last as part of the new AS Exclusive line. Which is more of a chiseled toe than the 106. I think I like it better on the 106.

So am I but it has to be in MTO.
Here is an other picture (not as nice) where we can see the last better.

Agreed! I don't believe you find that amount of toespring on the AS Exclusive range. At least not on any I've seen.

Theoretically...and to a very real degree, as well...the lower the heel the more toe spring is needed. More toe spring "anticipates" the flexing of the foot and works to minimize creasing.

The shoes above may have too much toe spring from an aesthetic or stylistic perspective but without examining them more closely and comparing them to the last, I suspect that the toe spring is well within reason.

3+ wears per day is a LOT. Understandable though, all things considered...

No I received this shoes November last year. I worn them about 25 times since. I took this picture last week. Am I more understandable?
