Toe Shape

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
For the shoe experts here . . . If you notice the toes of the following shoes on the new Cleverley web-site, they are more rounded: http://www.gjcleverley.co.uk/product.php?ProductId=2 http://www.gjcleverley.co.uk/product.php?ProductId=1 http://www.gjcleverley.co.uk/product.php?ProductId=16 Whereas the following are a little straighter: http://www.gjcleverley.co.uk/product.php?ProductId=14 http://www.gjcleverley.co.uk/product.php?ProductId=15 http://www.gjcleverley.co.uk/product.php?ProductId=3 What gives? Is this a style decision or are certain foot types better suited to one or the other?

My understanding (as one of their customers for 10 years) is that the chisel is the "house shape," developed by the great George Cleverley over the course of a 60 year career at various bespoke houses. Some customers don't like it, and prefer a more rounded toe. I think either shape can be fitted to almost any foot.

Unless you ask for a chiseled toe, you'll get a more rounded one by default. They're more comfortable, or at least more predictably comfortable, in the same way that Edward Green's rounded toe is more comfortable than any of their efforts over the years to develop a last for the chiseled look. Will
