I have a a pair of crepe soles chukkas by Testoni and I must say the crepe makes for comfortable shock absorbing walking around.

Solid!


Remind me of the late 40s/early 50s vibe of the Stetson Saratoga like these of mine:

Frustrating, because it makes me want a pair. The effect is gorgeous.

 

Also nice shoes grc1. I'll recognize them around London.

Thanks - it's based on one of the Kiton models, but I turned it into a wingtip instead of a captoe, added the swan neck and moved from 5 pairs of eyelets to 6. I also asked for a bit more substantial welt. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

For my test shoe on a custom last Antonio is making me...he has made the shoe from crust leather...and thus allowed me to choose a color or patina.

Could please explain what is "crust leather"? I tried to google it but could not really come up with anything. Probably a stupid question but kind new around here smile.gif

Crust leather is leather that hasn't been dyed, so the shoes are when finished natural color (light brown if veg tanned, light blue/grey if chrome tanned box calf), and you then apply the color on the finished shoes. The other normal leather type is aniline dyed, when the whole leather has been dyed in one color and comes like that to the factory/workshop.
