I never had any shoes made from woven leather strips, but I had various plaited belts. They have a tendency to stretch ad infinitum; I presume the same would happen with un-backed leather weave, particular in the flex points. That backing might well be necessary for the shoes to keep their shape.

They like producing rounded waists for me, but they said that no one in Vienna would wear them if they produced them on a regular basis.
Oops. Now we know. ............Fritzl it's the likes of you, that is holding Maftei back.

Not at all. It is good to have bs around. He is more knowledgeable than me, when it comes to English shoes.

Unfortunately he did not participate in the Austro-Hungarian thread yet.

He has "worked" with KR Georg Materna and IIRC he has shoes from Andreas Kudweis, so he owns pieces from both sides of the pond.

As I am "working" on a new pair of shoes with a young talented maker - Shoes will be finished in April - and it is again an exciting thing to see a different approach.

Nice thread, by the way, Fritzl.
