    This and the Suzuki thread suck. Like buying a Ferrari and posting two photos of the badge and no other pertinent info.

    Well Gerd I can't and don't read every thread, brohammer. Ill leave tbat to those not new to the shoe game. Perhaps he should have linked to his older threads, as I'm not the only one interested in more info.

    now, you mention it. keeding. both are great, imo. i prefer the conservative style of the AD, though.

    It looks to me that the distance between the end of the punching to the welt is not the same on the suzuki shoes,that in my opinion is not perfection that many think he produces.

    I see that too...it's significant. And I particularly don't like the medallion on the left shoe being so close to the welt. I wouldn't like it even if both were perfectly matched but that close to the welt.

    As a bespoke shoe there may be some reason we don't know about why this would be so....one foot longer than the other, for instance. But if the maker knows that there is a significant discrepancy between the feet, he can...maybe should...make a separate pattern for each shoe/last.

    I dont have a problem with it being close on one shoe,that is personal preference I suppose. But they should match and a bespoke maker should get details like that right, different size feet can be matched in the pattern as I understand it. I cannot believe it is anything but a mistake it should not have got past quality control

    Close picture.
    Not sure what to think of shoes here.

    DWFII,

    Absolutely agree with you. Both Anthony and Koji tell me similar advice-decide whether fit or appearance is more important for you as the foot will dictate limitations to achieving aesthetics. So, if fit is more important, sometimes shape/aesthetics have to be compromised during accomodation.

    You seem to understand this very well-which isn't surprising, seeing as you are a bootmaker. :D
