The Ultimate "HARDCORE" Shoe Porn Thread (Bespoke only) - Page 110

post #1636 of 2469
This was one of the first StC models and they always had Norvegese in the programme, a least 10 to 15 years ago.
That GG Norvegese is much better than what we have seen before (which was more like they tried it out for the first time, it was a bespoke pair that luk cha had posted).

photos of worn?

Butler, those shoes seem incredibly round at the toe...is it the photo playing tricks on me?

While I applaud the skill of Lobb's many makers, I'm always left wanting when seeing their lasts. They lack contours and the toe is more fat than round on most pairs. I interviewed one of their makers about a year ago, she said the customer has the last say when it comes to lasts. Evidently most decide to leave it to Lobb, who favours rotund toes. Wonderful examples are rare, but I've seen a few.

Beautiful shoes.

I must say, I'm becoming more and more enamoured of square waists.

Indeed. I've been waiting more than 3 years to spam this thread.

How often have you seen shoes like Butler's on the foot, in real life? In my opinion there is a preference on SF for shoes which photograph well. Lobb St James's, Church's, and so on, look great as shoes, as opposed to statues.

Church's is a good example, because it is by far the most popular "good" shoemaker in the UK, but receives next to no attention on SF.
