edit: @saurabh

pretty sure there is someone on the AM thread getting a cordovan split toe, and AM does triple stich norweigan for sure. though the wait time yea... you can ask him, and take his quote time multiply by 1.5 as your baseline...

Maybe I am wrong but AM doesn’t make a SpTD in Cordovan and anyways I don’t have patience to wait for AM. Isn’t his waiting time more than 6 months for a MTO pair with slight adjustment of last like instep etc ?
I have Maftei Vienna MTO right, and I stocked several pairs of Cordovan Split Toe in Cigar and Blueish Green.

@ijustknow do you know any more details on where Zhao sourced the pigskin from this pair of yours? http://fupei.net/?p=27623 I've been looking around for a shoe-appropriate pig or peccary without much luck. Templeman told me where he gets his but their colour selection is currently pretty low on stock

The pigskin was collected when he was in Italy.

Either on here or on other threads, I have given you boys the heads up about this maker. Considering the man was trained in Japan, his shoes better be reminiscent of Japanese made shoes 😂.

Furthermore, he is a contributor on SF 👍🏻.
