I've got a limited data set for comparison, but I will try to take some photos next to Alden Barrie. Only have AE loafers, and a few random Santonis, none of which will make a good comparison.

My overall take on the Forest is that it is a very elegant last, but it does have a high, rounded toe box. Personally, I like this about it, but there's clearly a lot of interest in shoes with a very different kind of toe.

Wow. That is something. Very nice Carminas. And did you take this photo yourself? It is also very nice. Makes me a little ashamed to post the two below.shog[1].gif

Nevertheless, here's an effort to show what the Forest last toe looks like compared to Alden Barrie (for no other reason than that's what I have) and a pair of Santonis of unknown last. Not sure if this is helpful or not. Assume everyone can guess which is which.

Thanks for posting. Seeing this picture I like the forest last even more than before. Great Shoe!

Ok, so I love green shoes, guilty as charged!

As a long lean and slim footed guy this last isn't my personal cuppa. But these rock, and for a guy of your configuration this last makes perfect sense.

Your photo is artsy and expressive as well.

Nicely played, sir!

Yes, I can see these as a collector's items but not for wearing.

I could wear these any normal week day with navy trousers and an odd jacket. But I do have to admit that my work environment is not particularly CBD oriented.

I remember Nucky Thompson's prosecutor wearing green shoes and getting fired over this in Boardwalk Empire...
