as for fit you could slim the width from the ankle to and including the heel cup a little more

                     that coloring is a great choice, they turned out extremely well

Hi everyone just found this thread, would like some opinions. I am ordering an MTO from Antonio Meccarrilo, a seamless wholecut crocodiles Oxford with four eyelets in color similar to this pic :


Would love to hear what you guys think about number of eyelets, the color, and of another design (other than Oxford wholecut) would be better.
Thx

thanks! 

 

so you think just the ankle and heel area? 

 

I also was told by a friend of mine that they also look a bit voluminous over the instep causing the lacing to close, and also a bit at the ball of the foot causing some extra creasing. Here are a few photos of them:

 

 

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.

Just so you guys know, I mentioned the maker Stephane Jimenez a little while back. He has sent me more photos of some pairs he has made recently so I just posted a bunch on the Stephane Jimenez Bespoke shoes thread! 

 

Follow it and you will see quite a variety as he keeps making more shoes!

^ do not like those green Saint crispins. I usually think of brandishing as a more subtle gradation in color darkening at the toe. Those look like someone stuck a forest green cap on a moss green shoe. Looks like a two-tone shoe more than brandishing.

St. Crispin's custom last MTO. Went through 2 pair of fitting shoes for this, but overall the fit is very good. Went with the pegless waist and the rubber sole. Very comfortable compared to other St. Crispin's I've had.

I remember you had two pairs of last adjustment MTO from SC that didn't quite work out.  What prompted you to go back?

 

Interesting short vamp.

Honestly, it was Skoak's fantastic pricing, and finding out that you can now get fitting shoes. Getting a fresh last made really helped with the fit, but the key was the fitting shoes.....

i know what you mean but what was more important to me was the overall shoe color. I figured that with time, i will be able to make the toe less popping. Any tips guys? I'd prefer it a dark olive instead of the forest green.

Did you request a heavily burnished toe?

 

If no, then return the shoe and ask for it to be re-made.

i asked for more burnishing on the toe but planned on it not being that extreme and also to be more gradual.
