Bestetti's New English Chisel Toe

Bestetti's shoes are so beautiful they almost don't look real. That's the feeling I get when I look at the picture above. It's so pristine and flawless and it's not easy to make shoes look that way, which gives me the feeling that it can't be an actual shoe, just a mirage of one!! Anyway, this is the new "English" last (chisel toe) as he calls it, that Bestetti just came out with. Of course it's reminiscent of a Cleverley or any other chisel toe for that matter, but what is nice about it is the fact that it's on a Bestetti shaped last! Beautiful at the very least, legendary at the most and nothing shy of great in-between....He will be incorporating this into his RTW line and I will have you know that me and another blogger are in the works to get Bestetti out of his workshop and into the big cities, looking at the possibility of trunk shows in London and Paris. This is all in planning stages so don't hold my neck to it, but just thought that I would let you all know!

On another note, Selfridges has done a video on me, where I talk about the 5 shoes that I believe every man should own. Bare in mind that not only did I have to find a shoe that was on the shoe floor, it hopefully had to be on the website!! Check it out if you are interested:

P.S.S. I will be putting up the pre-order tomorrow so be ready my friends. Pairs will be limited and it will be on a first come first serve basis. So if John Doe gets Style X in Size 8 and he is the first, it will be taken off the list.......I have created a chart to indicate the EU retail price less 20% as well as the non-EU price less 20%. Payments will be done on Paypal (so you must have an account) and payment must be paid entirely upfront (we will provide invoice receipts), with the exception of the shipping charges. I have also created a chart for all of you to base your sizing off of, as well as give as many comparisons that I can. The pre-order period will last for 10 days.

Thank you all very much for all of your support and I appreciate all of your loyalty up until now, and hope to maintain it forever!




  1. Sounds great Justin! Any (approximate) idea about what time you will be putting the pre-orders online, so we can stay ready?
    Also, when is delivery for the pre-orders expected?

    Looking very much forward to seeing your whole line!

    All the best,
    Soren, Denmark

  2. Soren - most likely around 4-5pm GMT...Delivery should be no later than Mid March...but most likely quite a bit earlier (like end of Feb, assuming it all goes well)...I like to under promise and over deliver....

    Thanks for the support!!
