I was originally going to go with SC. However, after talking with fritzl, I opted for Maftei-I am glad that I did. If you tell them or show them what you want, they will do exactly what you want. You will not be disappointed; not that you will be disappointed with SC, either. Plus, the price is much more affordable with Maftei!
Also, the fit is great and they are very accomodating when flying in. For example-do you need to meet them at 10pm? Not a problem for Maftei-don't even think about with many other makers. I have never met someone so accomodating and willingness to reach perfection as Maftei. If you are not satisfied, they will remake the shoe to your satisfaction (as long as you are not taking advantage of them.)
