Bernhard Roetzel, throwing the cat among the pigeons:
Has he got a point?First of all, not all custom shoes are great. A lot of them don't fit properly. Others don't look elegant and some are not well made. Thus it would be more honest to state that custom shoes are fantastic if they are built around a last that fits* and if the craftmen know what they are doing. If this is not the case custom shoes are a nightmare and worse than the average factory product.
*My edit: the original text says "a fit that lasts" which I presume, is an editing error.
