Both are incredible.

I was all set to order a chukka, but now I'm thinking about Wholecuts.

Yep... Doing it in one of his super museum calf. May add a toe cap type brogue too. Gotta see what he thinks. Really love the broguing on the one, so I'm thinking he'd get creative on a toe cap brogue too.

He makes some incredible shoes. Just ordered my first pair through him. One of my more expensive shoe purchases but hey it'll be worth it.

The whole cut Adelaide he posted the other day but with the upper and lower a different shade. Will be two shades of brown. Told him to feel free to take creative liberties w the colors.

Test shoe will be his version of the John Lobb Becketts

Did he quote a timeframe for the test and final shoe? I am looking to commission a pair of boots after I receive my aurum shoes, but as I understand it he is getting quite busy these days so wait time seems to have lengthened.

Per his email 3 months for my test shoes and 5 months from there for my aurums.

OMG, another two pairs of outstnding NST shoes!! The chained norvegese seems to be very really well done and the willow grain combo is amazing.:worship2:  Could you please tell me if most makers in Italy inseam the norvegese and the hand welted stitches without a carved holdfast in the insole?.  Most shoes I see from there are stitched aloft or with a cutted leather flap instead of inside channel/holdfast/feather.  Does R. Bestteti use same technique?. Can´t wait for my 360º norvegese Bonafes boots to arrive....

that norvogese has
an inside holdfast
it is hard to see
he cuts a notch inside
liek a "V" with one
arm vertical
to minimise how much
leather is removed
for teh inside holdfast
instead of excavating
more
