To the custom shoe maker (Was it schubert? Schuman? Another composer...Bartok) who was doing MTM shoes for below $200.00? Did anyone get shoes made? How were they? Is this still available?

A couple of us tried them. Overall, I 'd say reviews were mixed. They're a bit pricier than you remember. I don't think I'd do it again, but seok's a good guy and it's certainly not a scam or anything.

His order forms seem to have disappeared from the interwebs, and the blog hasn't been updated since June. Has this business gone the way of the dodo?

My sentiments exactly. It is (was?) by no means a scam and the shoe was ok, but for the price I paid for it, I could have done better RTW, especially on the discount market.
