    Does anybody know how the Deco last compares to Corthay's 001 last? They look similar. A side by side would be fun. If nobody has one, I will probably end up doing it at some point...

    FWIW, Corthay's actually are a few notches cheaper than the Deco...

    Does Leffot have Deco models? If so, you can visit the store and compare. IIRC Deco seems longer and pointer, but I have never compared them side by side.

    There is no such thing as stock deco. Leffot orders them MTO. I have been to trunck shows there were they were both present, but I didn't think to look at the time. My head was just on shiny shoes I don't yet own, not ones that I already have.

    I think it's just not the most flattering angle to photograph a square-toed G&G shoe from. I own a couple of pairs of TG73 and a pair of MH71, and personally, I think the toes look even more cut-off on the TG73 pairs than the MH71 when I view them on my feet from that angle.
