It's supposed to more closely mimic the way the foot naturally moves and to counter any tendency to pronate. I have shoes made on both kinds of lasts...I'm not convinced but it doesn't seem to hurt either--"no names, no pack drill."

I think BengalS and DWFII covered this twisted last in detail on the shoemaking or SC thread.

that is the front room of his workshop where he finishes shoes and makes the Novecento line...you can see the stairwell in the lower left corner...this leads up to a room that Riccardo is building into a showroom for clients that visit him...and to do fittings...there is also a small office beneath it where Riccardo does his work on the computer. Take note in the upper middle of the pic the large picture of the very colorful cowboy boots on the wall...these were all boots made by Riccardo. On the far left of that wall is a huge like twenty foot wall of shelves that stand about ten feet high holding people's lasts. Riccardo is going to extend the shelving up to the ceiling of the warehouse with a rolling laddler...will look pretty badass. In the back through the doors are all the machines to make the rtw shoes.
