i agree the shoes are beautiful.
I assume the high shine wont last past the first creme polish though or am I wrong?
One thing I have always wondered about 'this type' of bespoke models is the steep rise of the vamp. It is a main reason why they look so nice to me, but it requires the front of the shoe to be flat for quite a long distance . Does that mean it wouldn't suit people with relatively high instep (like me)?
Nice pics, thanks. I like the last! Looking forward to see the final version. Have a pair of test shoes coming here from Bestetti this week as well, but not bespoke but the Novecento MTO-line, which includes some modifications to his RTW-lasts and are made to the same standard as his bespoke shoes.
bespoke or mto? visiting italy or working remotely?
