What convinced you to make a rounded toe last instead of the famed "Cleverley" chiseled & squared toe?

Not my cup of tea, I'm afraid.

I've never really been a fan of chiseled and squared toes primarily because I favor casual shoes and to me that shape does not look right on a casual shoe. Also my feet are wide at the forefoot making the fit difficult for that specific shape.....

I had a feeling this shoe would be polarizing.

Cleverley Russia Calf.

That leather is lovely.
Question: do you live or work in Japan where you have to take off your shoes often? I'm just wondering about why people have bespoke slip-ons shoes.

You should do - it looks awesome!

they are more difficult to fit.

I can't find slip-ons which fit well on both of my feet, and without laces, the fit is the only keeping the shoes on your feet. So if I were set on wearing slip-ons, bespoke (or at least MTM) would probably be my best option.

Slip on shoes are more difficult to fit? OK, that makes sense but what I really want to know is why slip-on shoes in the first place?

All I can think of now is that they are to lazy to do the laces?

i hear you walking.imo, there's no real answer to it. it's a style preference like, say a double monk, galosh bal, etc., etc.
