    teh
    Aurum di Antonio Meccariello
    (A.dAM) shoes
    will not be ready
    for ordering until
    end of April/early May.

    he asks for your
    usual size and fitting
    in the brands you wear
    and asks a few
    specific measurements.

    if he thinks
    he has to modify a last
    there is an upcharge
    which includes a
    fully finished
    fully functional
    blake oxford
    (think entry level santoni)
    as a fitting shoe.

    this option is also available
    to customers who
    want to be sure of teh
    correct fitting
    before the final shoe
    is made.

    Thanks for this info.

    I am sure this has been discussed somewhere but what would be the pricing for the Aurum line again?

    These new Aurum/regular line with Aurum detail shoes have some sexy waists and heelcups. Antonio makes some beautiful shoes, through and through.

    once Aurum is launched
    there will be 3-4 lasts
    specifically for Aurum:
    -soft square
    -round
    (you can see the above two
    here
    other versions on this thread
    have been modified)
    -soft square chiselled
    (teh black derby i posted)
    chiselled round
    (he is studying the last)

    his normal lasts
    will also be available
    in the Aurum makeup

    models specifically
    for teh Aurum lasts
    are in development at
    this moment.
    but will offer the usual
    derbies
    oxfords
    monkstraps



    i believe the pricing
    for teh shoes are
    €900

    for teh 3 piece
    lasted shoetree
    €150
    (the Aurum specific lasts
    do not do well
    on standard shoetrees
    because of their ergonomic
    shape)

    if a client's measurements
    do not accord well
    to the chosen last
    Meccariello will offer
    to personalise a last
    and will send
    a trial/fitting shoe
    that is blake constructed
    and fully wearable
    (eg. Santoni blake)
    in a black oxford
    to ensure correct fit.
    this costs €150
