    She documented the whole process and revealed some details that she wasn't very happy about quality-wise. Anyway, if you're interested, here's the thread: http://www.newsaboutshoes.de/showthread.php?t=804 Maybe Google translate helps, otherwise PM me and I'll help as much as possible.

    That split-toe is absolutely terrific. It reminds me of the JM Weston Hunt Derby. It is a much better looking split-toe derby than the EG Dover, in my opinion. Wear it well.

    +1. They actually look Russian Reindeer-esque, just without the scoring.

    What's the configuration? Shoe looks amazing.

    p.s., Fritzl EG Dover sets a pretty high bar for NST

    Thank you! Tom and I designed it by taking elements of the Dover and incorporating it into the JM Weston Chasse. We then added the Norwegian welt. I have a last at SC- not bespoke, but they took a standard last and modified it. Not sure what to call it. Anyhow, the shoe is available for special order at LS.

    The fit is great- SCs have a ton of stability at the arch due to wood pegs they put in at that area. While this pair lacks the pegs, it remains very stable at the arch. I wouldn't consider myself someone who needs arch support, but for some reason the added stability makes SCs extremely comfortable. SCs are the most comfortable RTW shoes IMHO.
