My boots are indeed identical (although I did opt for a double leather sole) to the sample, down to the strange "Owl" medallion. When I ordered them, back in 2006, Materna did not have the pictured sample in the shop; otherwise, I might have opted for a different medallion. (Well, it grows on you and is certainly preferable to the "Grinning Monkey", Saint Crispin is so fond of.

Over the weekend, I might take a few pictures, showing the boots some seven years later.

I fit Materna rtw fine and didn't get mto or bespoke, were the fit/choices/etc very different?

Some Materna shots

 

Overall impression is very positive, I only don't get why they asking for the shoes more than twice compare to Maftei (1500+ euro vs. 690+ euro). I will stick to Vass and Maftei.

Very nice!

Just one question -why did you choose wood pegged soles over stiched? Just for esthetic or for something else?

Just wanted something different, heard a lot about them and their heritage so wanted to have something in person.

Very nicely done! Were these bespoke or RTW? Would you mind telling us what they cost you?

Materna MTM starts from 1500 euros, at least that's what they told me in the Vienna shop.

I've just seen a tiny difference between my boots and the Materna sample, which has nine pairs of eyelets, while I have eight. As the height of the boots is more or less the same, the spacing between the eyelets must be a smidgeon closer.
