You can compare a conventional double sole to the half double sole (HAF) and prefer one or the other, but you can't compare a double sole to a single sole.

Marcell's shoe has a conventional single sole.

I am not comparing anything,I am just providing more explanation to what the other member said. I am aware what HAF sole is and FWIW,EG does it a lot better than Vass so there might be truth in what was said but I don't dispute any of it.

I see, OK. I still work on it, but I do have to work on the business model too. I still don't have a distributor...

Classic and elegant. Well done. What type of pricing are you thinking about?

Quite right, I thought they were a double.

Well, once I had a customer contacted me, requesting a triple sole shoe - it is theoretically possible, but bending that sole.. that could be a problem. So, when we started the conversation about the details, I realized, that he wants a double sole, but somehow, he counts the welt as an insole. So now I am smarter, and always educate customers, before they come up with details.

This is a simple sole, but some of my bespoke customers want's half midsole - so I do those too. The proportions, what could have mislead you: the welt and the sole is skived downa bit around the shank, so it makes an impression that the sole is thicker around the front part.







Making them:

Well, this is still a question, but I guess around 1000.
