    Very nice. Always interesting to see that there are still a few skilled, traditional shoemakers left in Europe (and outside well-known shoemaking countries like England and Italy).

    If it's made in Poland it is probably made in Skoczów.

    The leathers for the Weinheimer (Freudenberg) company are tanned by Kegar in Kepice.

    Just looked it up on google-map: Skoczów and Kepice are not at all close to each other.

    Nice shoes macaroni,

    without seeing them in real it is difficult to judge every details, but from what I can see in the pictures they look really well done and for that price it is a bargain.
    Wear them in good health.

    Macaroni do you think he could copy a really well fitting pair of shoes as a sizing template for a pair of his design?

    I don't think any artisan will be happy to make duplicates of someone's work.

    What does an insole on a handmade shoe look like before it is lasted and everything? Why does it always look like a piece of clay or something with the welt attached to it before the sole is on? DWF?

    The slim waist looks great.

    No I mean use my shoe as a 'sizing template' to create one of his shoe designs.
