    ^ Nice Gaz. Was this on the way to Charvet? Looks like the Place Vendome.

    Thanks to whoever ordered the pictured pair = epic fail...

    i have to repudiate my statement due i thought the sticking plaster was hiding a norvegese, which imo would have been too much for this delicate leather and finishing.

    though i dunno feel the u-tip at all [​IMG]

    These look very sleek for a derby. Does the heel shape have any value beyond the aesthetic?
    it's for orthopedic reasons. very common in the austro-hungarian bespoke tradition...
    That's what's known as a Thomas heel. It is supposed to prevent pronation--walking the shoe to the inside (medial side). It doesn't always have that severe a "corner" on the lateral side. That seems a bit unstable to me but I could be wrong.
    Yup, Thomas heel or Flügelabsatz is what they are called. Not really necessary when one has relatively healthy feet but nice to have and very elegant IMHO. I feel they provide a slight stabilising effect but this could be mere hallucination.

    Noice!!
    S.W.?

    M.S.
    Not that it matters.

    These are mostly Ugolini sample shoes exhibited at his workshop, I posted another photo of the larger rack in another thread I think: [​IMG]
