The fit of them is ok...but def needs work.



As I've mentioned before, my test shoes didn't fit especially good at all, but after seeing pics of me wearing them he changed the lasts to an almost perfect fit for the final shoes.

   don't worry, he'll work it out for you. I had the same issue with the first test

   marked the changes needed up & sent to him, the second test was right on.

My latest project: bespoke Maverick in French calf suede/crocodile combo! I really enjoy working with him and his eye for fit is fantastic! I love the shapes of his shoes, they are like an Italian sports car smile.gif

Will be finished in a hide dark brown like picture below.

Also a RTW chukka in light green suede...

Fantastic...and I like the toe cap that has been darkened with polish.

 

I am still firmly in the camp that Bestetti's lasts are amongst the most beautiful.

Is that standard almond toe last or is it modified?

Standard.

My initial last was based on the almond last, but I decide (already a shoe ago) to take a more round approach to my collection.

This was my first commission and you can see the shift in shape. Love the boot, fantastic, but found out I prefer a bit more round!
