yes they are. they are also on a single sole. understood, that they need stiffeners and a full lining, like any other shoe. at least, these are made like this. actually, there's more than one way to skin a cat. btw, ludwig reiter has a very nice version in their current collection.

needless to say, it didn't take me a few hundreds quid to get there...

Don't mind, I'd still like to see. I'll be back in Vienna for Silvester. I'm thinking of branching out from Anglo-American dress boots.

alright, let me know what you're looking for and i try to give you some advice.

price range is helpful also.

Missing from my collection is a balmoral boot and a cap toe boot as well. Price wise, my upper limit is about 400-500 EUR. Probably can't find much in that range, but would be interesting to see how A-H makes them.

Not to go off the topic, but there is a short piece in the latest issue of The Rake on Austro-Hungarian shoemakers - some nice photos too.

The write-up in The Rake is titled The Austro-Hungarian Shoemaker's Art and is mostly a historical account of the shoe making industry in the region. I enjoyed learning about the apprenticeship (journeyman) program and the Guild. Did you know it took more time for someone to become master shoemaker then than it takes someone to become a foot surgeon today? Their Maker's of Distinction List:
  • Balint Massschuhe
  • Demeter & Halmos
  • Koronya Shoes
  • Maftei Massschuhe
  • Georg Materna
  • Ludwig Reiter
  • Rudolf Sheer & Sohne
    Lzszlo Vass

(apologies for any mis-spellings, missing accents, umlauts, etc)

become a master shoemaker: what is the time-bracket we're talking about? five, seven or more years?
