I got 3 pairs with Norweigan welt from Antonio amd something close to 10 (!) pairs in all. he's certainly my favorite maker
The last time I was there he showed me a big boot he had done for a Russian client- in this leather and like yours except with a smooth vamp. It was breathtaking. But I have to stay within my budget so I picked out a classic 4 season shoe that will work with everything. I still love that Metta Catharina mock leather.
A picture of my first purchase from Antonio Meccariello, his punched wholecut "signature model" which it almost has come to be, on his new soft square last modified after my feet (semi-bespoke) and in burgundy. Will post more pictures later, and also write a large buyer's guide on my blog:
Marcodakondra: MTO is pretty much everything you order from him, so no upcharge on that (start from about €550 for hand welted). But for the modified last it cost €150 extra, which is very reasonable. The reason for the gap at the lacing is cause the side of the uppers are cut pretty high, so my outer ankle tuber got squeezed a bit (I seem to have it placed pretty low, have had this issue with other shoes as well) so a cobbler has inserted a heelsole-piece which makes my feet come up a bit. But since they aren't worn at all yet I'm certain they will stretch down to about a 1 cm gap or something. And most importantly, it's not uncomfortable, which is the main issue.
