Yeah, I like them for their historical significance, but I would never wear them.

Love them, but that toe shape just isn't my taste.

thanks for your beautiful words of honesty. And thanks for your positive comments on the color also. This means that I will do as those in the photo ... but I really like that bit a lot.

The only change that I will do Bestetti compared to that image I had posted a few days ago is the most tacco.Vorrei a Cuban heel. What do you think?

Yesterday I received my new pair of Bestettis, and I'm awestruck. Even though they are just from his RTW line, I am utterly impressed. I've never seen anything else come close to this level of value for money. 

 

Full review here

Edit: I had to do a small alteration to the fit of the heel, since these are completely RTW. When I dropped them off at my cobbler (who is in fact a very talented shoemaker himself, but the market for bespoke shoes in Sweden is non existent) he was incredibly impressed, and had a hard time believing me when I told him that they retail for about €600. The only thing he wasn't entirely sure about was the fact that the soles are so durable and hard, that they will be quite uncomfortable to break in, but on the other hand, they will last for ages.

 

Needless to say, I'm quite happy to have them "reviewed" by an expert, and they seem to hold up to scrutiny.

Fantastic choice ... congratulations ... then the line, the sinuous shapes and finishes Bestetti is truly unique.

Also received my pair from Riccardo Bestetti this week, a pair of Maverick in anique tan, Novecento semi-bespoke line. Like expected truly amazing shoes, and Riccardo has been a pleasure to deal with. On my blog ( http://www.shoegazing.se ) there's a complete buying guide to Bestettis RTW, MTO and semi-bespoke offerings, pictures of lasts and models, prices, how to order and so on. Also a short review of the shoes. Written in Swedish, but you can use the translation tool on the upper right of the page to make it understandable.

 

Here are a bunch of pics of the shoes:

Beautiful pair of shoes from semi-bespoke line.  Did you work with him remotely or did you have the chance to visit his workshop?

Thanks! No, did everything over mail. Worked out very well, needed some changes to the last after the test shoes, but the final shoes are nearly perfect in fit.
