    Thanks a lot guys.

    Thanks. Its a personal preference for the shape of the last and I personally like to wear chiseled lasts too like G&G Deco square, TG73 etc and I thought they looked better on a sleeker last than a round last or almond shaped last.

    New boots - these were ordered and designed before Riccardo passed. To Marco's immense credit, he was able to pick up where the maestro had left off, and bring these boots to life.

    I know that.

    And I see no better way to honor his memory than to celebrate the fact that his legacy is still very much alive, by wearing his shoes.

    True. It is good that the company and brand continues. I know they do extensive trunk shows in US and Asia. I did not try anything and even do not know current pricing (other than rumor of price hike in 2018).
    Great regret that I did not make more pairs when he was still here. Considering if I should make another pair or not.

    Hear hear! I placed an order for another pair of boots, and I can't wait for them to join these beauties.

    I could never bring myself to wear those. My feet aren't worthy.

    hahaha its my first alligator shoes but if i had to get something from bestetti it had to be the "gladiators".
    surprisingly i took them out to spin first time after been in the box for 2-3 months.
