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.

These are all terrific. Gorgeous.
Is the colour reproduction in the photos accurate?
