    Today I received another pair of Corthays I had ordered. Since the style is unusual even for Corthay standards I thought I'd post some pictures.
    They actually had this model (Mahler) in this colour on display at the Rue Volney and I fell in love with it the first time I saw it.
    I am aware it's not everyones cup of tea but then, I always enjoy the pictures of rare shoe models posted here and hence I hope others will appreciate these.

    Not for me, necessarily, but I can see the inherent appeal.

    Unusual indeed but nicely executed nonetheless. Kudos to you if you can pull them off with panache.

    They look flawless. I'd wear them but I think my wife would walk a few steps ahead.

    I really like Corthay, but I admit these are not my cup of tea. I do respect anyone that can pull off such bold coloured shoes though.

    Looks like a juicy apple. That would take someone with some serious flair and career latitude.

    I think they are nice. These are RTW, right?
    I thought about getting these, but the bow sits pretty high on the instep, and would probably get lost under the pants.

    This from someone who pisses on Berluti.

    No, no, no, what's the deal? I have never actually pissed on a pair of Berluti shoes. As much as I detest some of their designs, I admire others and certainly wouldn't urinate on aany of them. Remember: I actually owned a number of their shoes and still own two pairs. It is just that at some point I came to realise Berlutis are among the worst value for money on the shoe-market.

    The colour is absolutely stunning....
    I have a pair of bespoke derby from Delos coming up in september in the same colour...........
    Absolutely beautiful .....I do like the shape but i'm a bit unsettled by the top part (coup de pied?) of it...
    As you have said in the introduction ,not for everyone but the Corthay brothers immense skills are on display....

    Very nice stilmacher. Are these bespoke or RTW Corthay's?
