    I'll reserve my pick for later. I'd like to break the thread into two categories:

    RTW/MTM
    Bespoke

    Please include pics. I figure we can use this thread as a platform for a judge panel of some of our shoe loving members to opine on a top three.

    RTW- I love the EG Newbury as a great all around shoe. Different enough where people will take notice, but not so different where you will have to limit what you can wear it with ot where to wear it. Very versatile and very classy.

    Bespoke - Anything from the guy who makes the shoes in your avatar.

    I've never seen it in real life but I loooove the way the Vass U-Last 'red cognac wintip' looks. The reddish color is amazing and I'm a huge fan of the U last shape. This shoe moves me.

    Don't think I'd ever wear them though...would just put them on a nice lighted shelf as an art display.

    I would have to say the shoes Sysdock (me thinks?) had made whilst on a trip in Norway/Sweden. There were pictures posted in the temporary AAAC setup during the crash.

    I believe Sysdoc's shoes were bespoke.
