Both are incredible.
I was all set to order a chukka, but now I'm thinking about Wholecuts.
Antonio sent through some progress photos of the final aurum shoes, the shoe is now welted with outsole and heel attached, look at how curvy that heel looks! The 3 photos are of the shoe yet t be painted, and final photo after painting!
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. 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....
