    I also have a pair on the Chiseled last, pictured on the left vs Novello on the right (same size).

    I like the Chiseled last, but Novello is another league IMO.
    Hope this helps.

    The Novello last appears to be a lot slimmer. How does it fit compare to the Chiseled last?

    Thanks for the picture, the Novello definitely looks alot sleeker, though I don't know if I am into the extra length. I'm never a fan of the chiseled last, but the Novello looks like good compromise between the chiseled last and the Classic.

    I hope so :) I love pointy lasts, otherwise shoes make your feet look chubby

    I saw the novello made up on pair at Leffot. I don't remember it seeming exceptionally long. It is very angular however.

    Worked for me on the shelf. Didn't try them on..

    I've always wondered how far you feet go in these 'pointy' lasted shoes? e.g. Just before the 'hard' bit or just after etc. (just editting a pic with ms paint would be fantastic :)
    I've got an extremely short foot so I'm restricted to the 'chubby' lasts T_T

    That's probably why I like the Novello last so much, because I really like the G&G TG73 and Deco lasts.
