    I think we have all been suffereing from BESTETTI DEPRIVATION SYNDROME an esoteric disease known only to sufferers in the arcane world of bespoke shoes...

    ...slightly off topic, but statistics tell us that the Dutch are the tallest nation in Europe. EU 47 would be 14US. Great for kicking and stomping around.

    I LOVE the hard work that goes into those shoes. The end result may be incredible elegance, but it was blood, sweat & tears that transformed it into the final result. Good lesson for all things, i think.
