Are you sure about that? I think they're directed more towards those kinds of women.
What's the consensus on the lasts? What do people like the best? Meermin seems to like the New Rey, putting them on most of their hand made models. Is it extended or simply slimmer-squared?
Which last are these? (I don't really like the idea of a captoe chelsea, but I like the last)
^^ There is definitely a market for women's wingtips! Though I'm not sure it's large at this price point. It is my impression that many women are used to purchasing poorly-made shoes, and may not see the value of these. Not as sure about the market for women's double monks. But I'm definitely with Needsmoreshoes on this one. I'm super into the way Janie Cai dresses a lot of the time, for example.
edit- miss-posted it.
Girl I am seeing just bought the DMs.
go purple or - GO HOME!
My mother was a pretty elegant woman in her day. She used to wear Ferragamo kiltie loafers (which she called 'flats') and low healed lace up wing tips quite a bit. These would be 'winter' shoes worn mostly with woolen trousers and big cashmere sweaters.
Given that she only bought quality stuff, kept a big wardrobe, and took immaculate care of everything I'm sure they are still in her closet. Although I don't recall seeing them on her recently.
The best last is the one that fits you. And chances are if your feet fit New Rey, they wont fit Ben.
Since I have slightly narrow feet, I'd probably want to go with New Rey, right? What's the general size conversion for New Rey?
Best option would be send imprints of your feet to Carmina directly and ask for their advise.
