actually he did.
to shed some light on this. td is taking part in the friendly user phase.
he has sent the shoes to me and i delivered them personally. i discussed with mr. berta, if he can make trees for them. he explained to me that he can copy trees for shoes, where the lasts are similar to the last shapes he is producing. so td and i deceided to give it a try. i have handled them before they've been sent to td. he had the possibility to step back, if the outcome wouldn't be to his satisfaction and refuse them. he has been charged after he received them and confirmed his enthusiasm.
in an ideal world you have access to the original last hence the model is still in the friendly user phase.
