    I think he meant the last they are going to be tacked onto, not the uppers themselves. It's pretty obvious that there is no last anywhere near the uppers in that picture. Anyway, I don't think of Bestetti's last shapes as "tacky". Spectacular -- maybe, but still tasteful.

    Some of the most exciting and best made shoes around and I notice some Italian shoemakers are trying to copy his trademark voluptuous toe style/treatment.

    Seriously: online style blogs and forums must have been a significant boon for many artisans. I, for one, had never heard or read about Bestetti before this thread. Now he has my respect by all accounts.
