    They can, someone did it somewhere on this site. They said its risky though because of how much they stretch the leather

    I see, that's a shame. I suppose function will have to trump form in this instance...

    It may not be a huge deal. Nick at bespoke would be a better bet. I can definitely see where the concern would come in though.

    Maybe they could do something unique with the stiching? Who knows

    Would be good looking, but those won't be one of you first ten to twenty shoes. See the experiences of G&G bespoke clients.

    AFAIK, its not exactly a durable construction technique as the leather will be stretched and formed. Better search the bespoke shoe thread or this thread for those comments.
