The Ultimate "HARDCORE" Shoe Porn Thread (Bespoke only) - Page 103

post #1531 of 2460

I've always wondered...do ugly feet make for an ugly last when going bespoke? e.g. My feet are short and wide T_T so many RTW just have too much space past the toes

Thanks

Good bespoke shoemakers can hide ALOT. You'd be surprised.

Here's a Semi-bespoke dress shoes made by SAION for an extra wide and short feet. Not sure if you need those extra tall heels (perhaps the owner wanted them), but overall it manages to look quite sharp with a tight waist

I don't think we have many access to the superb Japanese makers here in the US.  :(

Great contributions as always, nutcracker. Apparently higher heels and hidden elevator pads are common in Japan?

lololol, a local shoe repair shop taught me that a pitched heel will make the 'extra' height look less obvious fing02[1].gif

Doesn't need to be ugly, but comfort and fit takes precedence over everything else IMO.

Maybe not, I am 5' 6" so not extremely short but still like to wear shoes or boots with a visibly higher heel. I have never and will never wear elevator pads because high heel cups look so bad. But a nicely curved cuban or cavalry heel can be really nice. I am starting to working on a boot with a 1 5/8" cavalry heel these days

We are the same height, and if one's not gonna reach 5' 9' (around average height), I wonder why do it at all.

TBH I am OK with my height as my build is relatively proportional but I really like the look of heels. I went to mexico this summer and saw some guys wearing cuban heels and thought it really looked good. I also like the look of alot of the old shoes you would see in early 20th century fashion plates and there was this one Saion bespoke shoe that had this cuban like heel I liked. I also grew up wearing cowboy boots and really miss those heels.
