the difference is the welt. the "goyserer" or "zwiegenäht" is a double welt, while on the burgundy pair it's a single contrast stitching with bigger gaps between the stitches. you don't see the second version very often, though. it's clearly a bespoke feature.

 

 

Aha. Now I get it.

The Japanese blog I've been following has been updated. Might be worth google-translating the latest entry since it's fairly extensive (with pics and lots of text):

this is indeed a tricky question. i visited him on thursday to pick up a few repairs, he has done for me. actually, i told him that i will pick up a last and then we should talk about my next project. he said something along the lines: i'll stop shoemaking for a while. my friends are building their houses and i want to give them a helping hand. well, he has a boot in the make and another haferl and this will it be for a while.

i let you know...

here's a worthwile read on the topic: http://www.meisterstrasse.at/schuhe-zaisenberger/product/ausseer-tatscher-und-haferlschuh

likely it will keep you busy for the next three months hence you can pass a test of being a master in austrian tradition and history.

Is it sueded? How do you care for it? Love the shoes. Personally, I'd wax the laces though...

yes, it is sueded. tbh, I haven't thought about the care yet. I have suede care so I'll likely try this. I don't think I'm going the phat guido route and treat them with cream/wax for the used look. also, didn't really look into the laces department. I might do something. fit is paramount and it's really great.

Beautiful shoes. I didn't realize that goat leather is used for shoes. Is that common?

good question. I don't know. when I talked to a friend whose family runs a tannery and a leather wholesale in the third generation - he helped me to identify the leather - he stated, that it is not typical. he liked it a fair bit, though.
