Edward Green bespoke Adelaide bals with hand-stitching forming the diamond cap, the U throat, and the heel counter. Tony Gaziano, who made the lasts for these shoes, is a chisel-toe specialist; and these shoes have the chiseliest of chisel toes. That was intentional: I wanted something extremely aggressive, and that's what he made for me. I imagine that I will have Tony make more shoes for me at some point, but I think that the next pair will have a smart round toe.
