Bespoke Maftei for Jesper of Shoegazing.se

Maftei bespoke123

 

It would appear that Jesper of Shoegazing.se has been a busy boy getting his bespoke on and when the shoes are as nice is this, I can’t blame him! While I can’t say that I am crazy about the amount of toe spring for a bespoke shoe, I must say that the rest of it is simply exquisite, particularly the coloring. From my brief time at Maftei, in Vienna, it would appear that their shoes are becoming more and more refined (at least from what I see of recent pictures). Everything looks very neat on this shoe which is not always the case (don’t take offense because it’s true) of the Austo-Hungarian makers. But if the prices are still around £1100 for bespoke shoes, then this takes the cake! Now, Jesper, for the 3rd pair (which I am sure is coming ;-), let’s see another color!! How about a blue? HA! See you in Gothenburg soon my friend and well done for these!

    Hi. I just wanted some professional advice on 2 things:
    1. Anyone has any comments or opinion about this timberland shoe: Timberland Earthkeepers Newmarket High-Top, Men’s Trainers, Brown, https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00G21N026/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_iGQtvb1X6ECJA
    2. Is H by Hudson and Base London good brands?
