T4:

In looking at the pics, I noticed the absence of a side lining on Bestetti's shoes. Does he in fact not use a side lining?

Nice shoes, by the way!

what you mean by

Side linings are soft reinforcements of the sides of a shoe/boot to preserve its shape once the
shoe gets worn.Toe puffs and heel counters are stiff reinforcements.

All of them are placed inside the shoe between lining and upper leather.

The “innards” still out on the table: heel counter, toe puffs and side linings.

Toecap-1.jpg
Here they are in place: toe puff on one shoe, side linings on both.

Different pair of boots:

dbrownsmall3.jpg
Side linings sticking out. Toe puff still missing.

I remember reading in James Ducker’s blog (he had started shoemaking while living in Spain)
that the Spaniards wouldn’t use side linings and he had to learn to prepare and fix them,
only after he had returned to England.

Maybe the Italians do not use them either.

Look

not from you.

shoes w/o trees always look a bit different. oh well.

imo, it's a unfortunate style for the foot shape, anyway. especially the tight waist. too much excess material, imo

The shoes are bespoke, if nothing else.

We don't know what the foot, that these shoes are made for, looks like. It doesn't make sense...even subconsciously...to look for all too familiar shapes, derived from standardized lasts, on bespoke shoes.

The bespoke maker has to respect and build to the foot...not to third party expectations.

thank you for explaining that


to make a blind supposition
of 'not lasting well'
it at best hasty
at worse stupid

is that your sharkskin chukka rolf?
nice!

from what i have seen
bestetti doesn't use it
but he does refer to
'leather reinforcement'
for some more delicate leathers.

but so far
none of my shoes
have 'deformed' for lack
of this side lining
(oldest one about 10 yrs)
