No idea, but if you like more blunted toes, have you seen Ludwig Reiter's Gustav Mahler model? It's a plain toe blucher that combines the signature Reiter high toe-box with a more blunted front than their bread-and-butter "Wiener" model. Not to mention that it has real history behind it, being originally designed for the Maestro himself in the late 1800s by the firm. They are a bit pricey in the States (better to get them on the Continent or even in London), partially because to my knowledge only Barney's stocks the marque. But I love mine.Risking the wrath of those fashionistas who will argue that pointy toes are all the rage, I still prefer a slightly squared-off toe in most instances, to varying degrees.
They're an old man shoe. If you see a kid wearing them you can be sure he's some cubicle working nerd and the girl's in the office laugh at his "style" and use him as a gofer. No top female would be caught dead with a dweeby wing tip wearer.
