¨I made our RTW lasts with the idea of bringing the advantages of a bespoke fitting to our RTW line of shoes. ¨- Norman Vilalta
1) They have a fitted entrance but it´s very flexible, you will hear the "suapss" sound when entering inside the shoes as you would hear in a bespoke shoe. That translates into comfort.
2) The arch is carved like a bespoke shoe (that allows our sexy slim waist sole). That detail of the last/shoe will hold your foot until the end of the day and because of that slim waist sole our shoe weighs less than a normal one. Also, these features don´t allow wrinkles in this part of the shoe.
3) This is very important when you choose your size; you can go for a bespoke fitting (very close to the skin), or go half a size up and feel more free and loose in the shoe. In this case, in my last, the shoe won't get permanent wrinkles at the part where the shoe bends while you walk, as would normally happen when there is space between the shoe and the foot. Our lasts are made in a way that the shoe stretches and then gets ironed back in place with each step.
