Question is: For those of you who have already made a bespoke shoe purchase and have enjoyed the final product...what would you do and NOT DO for your next purchase?

Are there any pitfalls you can suggest that I navigate away from or any good decision which you made that you encourage others to partake?

Great question, I am thinking of getting a pair myself. Thank you in advance for the feedback.

What I learned (without having a pair of bespoke) is that it is ridiculous to have that multi colour shoes! A strawberrry chocolat colored shoes looks more like a cake than a shoe. And the message is even worse: "Hey all, look at me. I am having some bespoke done!"

Perhaps if you dropped less acid on your next go round the shoes would look better - and your post, make a lot more sense. You naughty Germans.
