A new one . What you see in the picture by the way isn't the last, it's a metal device used to heat shape the heel. The real last comes into play after this step.On which last are you making the wingtip Derby if I can ask?
Thanks, I had been planning one for a while but never got around to it. Being in the factory when they made the design really helped as then I could point out some details that i didn't want them to miss.That shortwing derby looks like a winner.
Finally some STD sienna hatch grain pictures, I was waiting on those! Personally, I feel like this is one of the best GMTO's we've done. The soft square last, with the hatch grain leather really works. Most of these went to SF members, so thank you all for that!
Vegetable tanned tumbled calf leather from Badalassi Carlo. Will also have a vegetable tanned leather lining, and vegetable tanned double leather sole. I'm moving towards chromium-free tanned leathers for this new project I'm working on (suedes and calf leather).You hit a homerun with the design of those wingtips. What leather is it?
Sneakers will come in full sizes only, so that will give me a bit more leeway to order larger sizes. I plan to go up to 11UK at least.I certainly haven't seen the sneaker design yet, but what is the largest size that you plan to order at the factory?
And yes, shortwing look very promising!!!
Are these the last I'm waiting for?A new one .
Please remind me where you made the last for sneakers?Sneakers will come in full sizes only, so that will give me a bit more leeway to order larger sizes. I plan to go up to 11UK at least.
Yes, that’s the one.Are these the last I'm waiting for?
Please remind me where you made the last for sneakers?
Italian shoe brands are very variable in size.
11UK they'll be too small for me.
Adidas, Nike, I wear 12UK, but I had Italian shoes 11UK that were big to me, I also bought Italian size 12 sneakers as the manufacturer stated, they were too small for me.

It will be GMTO?Yes, that’s the one.
Good question. It's not just for fun, it's the direction I will be heading for the entire brand, eventually. It's a long story, and I'm sure I'll post the the entire story one day, but let's say that I would like to produce a more sustainable, affordable and transparent alternative to what a lot of high street brands are offering these days.It will be GMTO?
Or did you do it for fun?
Great to hear that you might be interested! Please see my explanation above. The crowdfunder should appear online at the end of February, and will run for a little over 1.5 months.A full veg tanned leather shoes would be very interesting. When will it be available for purchase? Looks like Im going to buy my first SoH shoe.
The tannery calls it Tobacco, perhaps I'll use that name, perhaps not. To me it's darker than Tobacco.What is the extact color of those wingtips?
