    I am expecting the same shoe/color combo this month. Coming up on 7 months now, love G&G shoes but the wait is getting ridiculous.

    reminds me of the 348 last, always surprises me how g&g only has 4 lasts and they all look so different on different shoes... must be the viewing angle...do you have a side shot from a 45 degree angle for these shoes?

    Not really. Shoe patterns are made very specifically for the last that they will be lasted over.

    Unless the new last is very similar both in shape, size and dimensions to the original, it would require a major rebuild---relasting, new insole, new outsole, etc., And even then the proportions are likely to end up strange.
