All of the shoes shown below are from well known, high-end, quality shoe makers. Each pair of shoes is within 20% of the price of the others, and each uses a different method for attaching the outsole.
I would, and do, own each of them (for different reasons).

One of the points that DWFII tries to make is that, given similar price points, why would someone not buy bespoke.
I think he has a valid point, but I do like the diversity in the styles from the different makers, and I also like instant gratification. I'm all for bespoke, but waiting a year for a pair of shoes just kills me. And, my budget does not allow for expensing 10 pair of bespoke shoes at a time.
Well Done Sir!!!!
