The color is just fantastic with rich shades of oxblood and burgundy.. Fritzl is super proud of the leather, and rightly so. Very solid "˜toothpick' construction with soles look like they could beat the hell out of cobblestone.

I took some comparison pics with a few lasts - from 12 o'clock: AE Macallister (#5 last), C&J Hallum (348 last), Alfred Sargent Stratford (99 last), Vass budapester derby (awesomest F last), Paprika. I know the styling may not be everyone's cup of tea, but i think they'll be pretty badass with a casual outfit.

Fritzl should have more to say about these shortly.




Lovely! that colour is sublime, and the last looks very asymmetrical - rather like the Vass F but a flatter toe box ..

I haven't read the thread - these are by Handmacher?

Just wanted to add that the paprikas have been breaking in very very nicely. Started off a bit stiff in the soles, but they are now becoming best friends with my feet..leather is pure sex.
