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

    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?

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