    I had the opportunity to wear a dressy pair of 2 eyelet Aurum derbies Antonio made me for the first time last week at a charity event.

    They are awesome. Very comfortable on the first wear.

    so besides the difference in the last, what difference have you guys noticed from the standard line MTO to the Aurum?

    Does anyone have one of each to compare side by side?

    I have two pair of Aurum and they are both beautiful.

    Cannot speak for standard MTO.

    I'm just curious because it seems that there is quite a big difference in cost but I don't know the details that justify the cost besides the last yet.

    I think it would be great to try out one and then the other to compare, but any info that someone has would be appreciated!

    I've seen some test shoes/boots, but those are test boots?????
    Wow!

    Is the boot you are having made, the exact same style or did you ask for some minor changes? (besides the color of course)

    aurum are hand-made, hand-stitched, hand-welted.

    mto aren't hand welted and i doubt hand stitched...

    No, this doesn't sound right. His standard line is handwelted, too.

    Correct, only test shoes are goodyear welted. Others from both the main line and aurum are all handwelted.

    I asked for jodhpurs for the Aurum pair. Antonio said he'll make the test pair as oxford boots without a medallion.

    How do I order shoes to the U.S. from him? Or is that an option? Also, what's pricing of the higher level shoes?
