Does anyone know anything about the Dali and Velazquez lasts? TLB seems to have a South Korean retailer here (https://tlbkorea.com/index.html) with these 2 lasts under the Artista range, in addition to Goya and Picasso.
Yes. When we developed the Artista lasts we first did soft chiseled Picasso, then from that went on to make a classic round. First attempt was a bit too almond toe shaped for what we were after, so we went on to develop rounder Goya but the almond toe last looked great as well and was kept under the name Dali (you can read more here).

Velazquez is a brand new last developed after a wish from the South Korea agent, it is a soft square last with a bit wider toe and less chiseling than Picasso, looks a bit like Edward Green's 888 last. Will be available from TLB and if other retailers bring it in as well soon.

As with all TLB Artista lasts, the base lasts are exactly the same only the toe shape that differs, so the fit between Picasso, Goya, Dali and Velazquez are all the same.

I agree the website is a little frustrating because it does not have top view.
Yeah, it really surprises me. It seems so fundamental since that's the view we all have of our shoes when we're wearing them. Carmina's website has the same issue, actually.

I've got the Artista 109 in Vegano dark brown on the way. Hopefully they will offer the Cordovan in some boot styles, I need a pair in black, or cognac/bourbon. I'd also be interested in a Cordovan double monk in #8 burgundy. Will the Cordovan line also be in the Artista line? Hopefully.

Post a picture of your dark brown 109 when you get it. I am curious to see how close the color is to an espresso brown.

Dying to get a pair of Artistas to try on. Would love to see photos of your shoes. I'm looking more at the Picasso last; that square soft chisel is damn sexy...
