    These are my new creations for two customers. I just wanted to point your interest to the interesting fact, that even they are (almost) the same design, but:
    - two different sewing type: left: goiser with spinning stitch, right: English welted
    - two different last shape: left: classic Budapest, right: new "801" last from Koronya
    - double sole - single sole
    - different sole decorations (I just enclose a picture about the Budapest one)
    Opinions about the 801 last are welcome! Very soon you can see a 'limited edition' shoe on it.. (it was a teaser [​IMG] - I am still considering what I should put into it)

    Cool side by side comparison. Thanks. That 801 last is very attractive IMO

    Great post thank you!

    The 801 looks to be inspired by Vass' U last.

    I agree and I love it. It's almost a deadringer to the U last.

    Yes similar, but if you look from the side - this is more "sharp".

    Could we perhaps get an overhead shot of both shoes?
