I am no expert on shoes, but like what's been written in multiple threads in this forum as in suits, shoes whatever (vass or some other brand), it just depends on the person. I think MTO is using a pre-existing model/last, but made to your general foot size while bespoke you have more control over the design of the shoe and theoretically a perfect fit for your feet. Bespoke is for people with extra money to burn or wants a pair of fully customized shoe that's as special, unique, superior as the to-be owner himself.
Correct me if I am wrong, but unless your feet are as deformed as the elephant man's face or you have the above reasons then it shouldn't be an issue MTO vs. Bespoke. One can make the argument that good RTW should be fine, too.
