You can see the shrunken leather here in the first picture on the lacing part of the shoes vs the INCA on the pair in the next picture below.

Hi Reto

Can you, perhaps, provide a couple more angle of these shoes, so one can gauge the Sailor Last better?

I have pictures of very similar/same designs from other makers as well in different construction methods.

 

p.s., can Z&K do a last comparison of all SC lasts, both top down and side profile?  The last Classic vs Riva blog post was good but could use some ID of the lasts on pictures.  :)

 

Try this and see if it helps:

Depending on the styling on the toe, I can't tell the difference at an arm's distance between the classic and the riva.

Seen those two in action personally; Rica RIVA is really really chiseled.

Bit under the water but will see to put up some pictures later today or tomorrow latest. Cheers, Reto

Much thanks!  It does help somewhat but still interested in side to side comparisons of all lasts.

 

So far I know Classic and Riva is about the width with Riva being chiseled at the tip w/ slightly less volume.  And Sailor last is a generous fit, much wider than Classic/Riva, like a rounded/soft square.

 

But there's also boot last(?), screwdriver, etc...

Here we go with some pictures of the 580A on the Sailor Last:










The Riva last and the classic last are really identical except for the little hump and Chisel of the Riva. The Sailor is, as has been said, quite a bit roomier in the forefoot. Hope these pictures help a bit.

Personally I think the Classic last is still on top of the heap but there are very nice applications for the other lasts, too, although a bit more limited in use IMO.

Cheers

Reto,

 

Thanks for the pictures!

 

Classic/Riva looks nice but they don't fit me anywhere close as well as Sailor.

 

p.s., I like Classic much better.  Riva's chisel toe tapering is way too eye catching for my taste.  :p

Damn....that is a great looking pair of shoes. Certainly more appealing than any others Ive seen of the same model by other makers. And the Sailor Last is a a beauty. Thanks for the pics.

Forgive me if they are already posted, but does anybody have any images of their "shrunken" calf?

Also, does anybody have experience with their buffalo? It looks amazing, but I am curious if it is a stamped grain, or actual buffalo.

   there are pics of both in one of my previous posts. the buffalo swatches could be enlarged to give you a better idea of graining

Thanks, is buffalo softer than calf?

   not particularly. the shaft on the boot is butter soft IRL

Those black double monks posted a while back in the buffalo have burned a hole in my brain. A very expensive and tempting hole.
