New addition to my Saint Crispin family, directly from Romania, purchased from a fellow that lives in the town next to Brasov where Saint C's are made.

What's the leather on the split toe?

Thank you for your kind words.

They are CRU 611 (burgundy) but extra burnishing/darkening was requested from our customer :)

Fantastic, all of them. This color though is really the show stopper. What's the color code for it?

I would like to know the color code for this as well...the color is amazing and seem to take polish very well :-)

Thank you gentlemen!

If you are referring to the burgundy split toe, they are CRU 611 (burgundy) but extra burnishing/darkening was requested from our customer :)

One of my St. C pairs came in on my custom last! There are on the classic last and are a modified green so they are olive green in color with a darker burnished toe:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is it just me or does this pair seem to have the welting a bit further than usual? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is me first trying them on. What do you guys think of the fit?

thank you guys!!! I think the color is definitely different from what I usually see so I was hoping they would work out! 

 

My only concern was if the fit looked good, but I'm glad you guys think it works well!

Holy narrow feet!!

I think the instep is a bit too wide? The face opening is completely closed, might turn a bit loose once the leather softens up.

They they are very narrow!

 

Yes they are still a bit wide for me, so for the next pair I will have them made even more narrow in the instep and around the ball of the foot, but i'll let you know how they work out over time.

You've got a centimeter or so at the instep, so I think that's fine. Can't really judge the rest from a picture though, but looks like a good start!

Here are a few pictures that I took to shoe more of the fit to see what you guys think:

 

 

 

This shows the ball of my foot at my finger and some extra material just around it

 

 

This is with my heels raised to exaggerate the creasing locations and amount.

 

 

Here I'm pushing in on the ball of my foot (big toe joint) to show the location and extra material and width in that area.

Ball width still a bit wide as well, and some extra spaces around teh vamp.

 

Why not get trial shoes first?

I did get trial shoes first and even with taken some width down, i still have this much extra. It is crazy, I know, but I have such crazy narrow feet. I always have a problem and it takes a lot of modifications to get enough volume taken down for me. 

 

It would have been really bad if i didn't get the trial shoes made first as well as to have a good idea of taking a few widths off before even making the trial shoe.

 

You have to remember that I'm about a US AA width in measure.

Trial shoes in from
Skoaktiebolaget - modified Classic last. Fit for the left foot is spot on, slightly less so for my right.
