Those are so nice they seem like a work of art. If I had a pair, I doubt that I would wear them. I'd just admire them. Then again, if I were able to afford them, maybe I would wear them.

What about you! Would you wear these shoes if you had a pair?

I've noticed this cut on many bespoke shoes. Not my style.

I would only wear them in indoors.

Maybe the buyer wants to appear a bit taller?

I don't normally care for Cuban heels, but I like these more than most. In fact, I liked the shoe more, not less, when I saw it in profile. The heel is what makes it distinctive, and adds an aerodynamic sleekness I find interesting in suede.

If the arc from the rear of the shoe's top to the bottom of the heel were off by the tiniest bit, this would be a disaster. But I think it works. I wouldn't choose it myself, but I'd like to see the clothes worn by the man who did.

i still think they are quite nice, they are only feminine if you have issues with these kind of things but each to their own - dior homme have also done something simular this season too aslo amsbury does this with his bespoke shoes too!, i think it would be ok to do it with 1 pair just for fun
