not a fan of 270 .. affects integrity of the stitch .. I have seen of pics of stitching loosening from there.
Purely in the interest of curiosity, do you happen to have a photo of what a 270 degree norvegese looks like? Never seen that.

Would you all be okay with a 270 norvegese?

Don’t let me sidetrack the original makeup. I’ll gladly step aside if one other person wants the 360 you all decided on. Like @nishant I wouldn’t want a 270 as well.

I’m indifferent : I just like continuing the conversation if we’re close to having 4. But I would say I’m agreeable to a no on 270, I’d rather go all in with the 360

Lorenzo informed me that he didn’t realize we were asking for Norvegese when I asked for a quote.

1095 USD is the price w/o Norvegese.
+ 55 USD for toecaps

Actually, going without Norvegese might bring the focus on the shell a lot more. I like @stephenaf2003 ‘s input ... Mahogany Shell + Big Grain would have the show!!!

DL w/ toecaps

@jischwar @mugenlove @stephenaf2003

Confirmed ?

There's a small chance I am interested in the makeup as well but I am waiting for my dark cognac Balways to come in, my first pair on the 74945 last. Will know by Wednesday night. That said, I'm also exploring possible options for a fur-lined Balway in a durable leather/sole. That is in the works and once I have a proposal I will post it to see if any takers line up.

New split toes arrived today from @SoleGarb. These have been a long time in the works. One standard trial pair, a fitting with Lorenzo, and two custom trial pairs to refine the last. Lorenzo tells me that Enzo did the work on the last himself. Those of you who have followed me here and on the StC thread will know my feet are long-ish and narrow with a low instep. Pretty much the antithesis of the standard EB fit.

After a lot of effort by a lot of people; I have a pair of shoes that really fit me. Or they will once I break them in :D. Double soles and 270 degree Norvegese stitching makes for some stiff shoes. Will start the break in process tomorrow.

For reference, these are Oxblood Hatch Grain Split-Toe Derbies on 74945. Decided to go with these to dial-in the last before having some shell boots made.

That's a great pair, very nicely done. The 270 Norvegese looks good there.
