    I especially like the stacked heel which is somewhat higher than most.

    The following picture showing also a new style released from my hand these days. It would be interesting to read what you are thinking of, or what kind of emotions occures by the look of it. Art Deco resemblance is the closest I can come up with, what do you guys think?

    They are certainly interesting and look very well made. Personally, I prefer more classic styling.

    Those are amazing, I love everything about them. I think from a bespoke perspective....there are things that are not usually seen...thats the point. Beautiful!

    Thank you for your support,
    I believe in making new designs, not only to make something new, but try making a better design/improvement, based on the classic tradition. The part which I find better with the two previous designs is the opening and how the Tounge is made slightly broader to increase comfort. Below you see even another style, which isn´t new at all, but the way the ageing is done is quite interesting. Enjoy yourself!

    Crust Calf, dyed and aged. 1/4" sole, 12 stitches to the inch. Red lining. Shellack finish to sole edge and heel. Bevelled waist.

    Is the colour reproduction in the photos accurate?

    I usually hate clogging up fora with the following type of response but:
    MY GOSH! They are stunning shoes.

    Gentlemen,
    On my screen the colors are a little bit red. To achieve the correct color your screen must have the correct Gamma settings. Even with the right settings the colors will be different from screen to screen. The only way to see the right colors is of course to visit my presentation next Friday and Saturday. Forward your e-mail to make an appointment, or receiving your invitation.

    Gentlemen,
    Soph, A Wholecut will start at $2.855,- + handling, freight and insurance.
    For those of you who are coming to my presentation on Friday and Saturday in NY, there will be more to see shoewise, but also woolwise. I will bring one of my personal belongings just airborn from Kashmir in India, a stole originally woven for Royalties. It will be interesting to hear your reactions on the quality, it is hard to get even when you now where to get it, because access to the raw material is very rear and limited. The price for this product is higher than most people can ever imagen, because of the reasons explained. The item I will bring is personal and not for sale, but I will gladly receive your requests!
