    That is awesome. So you had them re-soled and the cobbler added in the Goyser welt at your request?

    Well thanks, I guess you're right, the problem I think is some of my stuff is too new or if they're not I have a fairly big rotation and don't wear as often. On top, my pics are not that nice. I need to wear them damn shoos 10 days in a row, then go outside and find some nice trees, grass or deck of woods and shoot the pics :D . or do something interesting like the gentleman who posted a pic of his shoe in the middle of the cobbled street in the shoe porn thread. That tile in my living roon is too cold.

    not exactly. this is not my shoe. the task was to restore an old pair of shoes.

    my cobbler did it. his teacher forgot to mention that this pair should compete at the championsship in wiesbaden and he gave it back to the owner. after the shoe had been worn it was disqualified for the competition. nevertheless they showed them to the jury and they approved for gold medal if it would have been in the competition.

    david. glad you enjoy the thread.

    things that are making me happy:

    recently my uncle asked me, if he can join me on a paprika trip. i certainly agreed and welcomed his interest. he was a leading manager for a big german company which produces roboter systems for the automotive industry. after day one we settled for dinner. he said, you know, i travelled a lot for my company. you showed me things, i've never seen before nor knew that they existed. on day two we've been to the workshop of mr. berta. my uncle said to mr. berta. i'm engineer and you have some fine machines here. can you explain the procedure to me. unforgetalble...

    Fritzl, perhaps you can pass this question on to someone you know or help answer it yourself. On a recent trip to Germany I stopped in a shop in Munich (Schuhmanufaktur Danis) to purchase a pair of Vass shoes. There was a woman working in the store (I believe her name was Maria) who was very helpful and tried tirelessly to find a pair of shoes with a good fit. In the end, she said "you need the banana last." That was the first I had ever heard of the banana last - or a banana last of any kind. I did a search of this forum and the web and the information available on the banana last is, to say the least, sketchy.

    You can find that information here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/10286/banana-last#post_113349


    Just looking to get a good understanding of the banana last in general and why I, or anyone else, would need it. Finally does anyone have pictures of Vass, or other shoes in the AH school, on the banana last?
