A couple of weeks ago I got to “meet” these Riccardo Bestetti Maverick adelaides again, which I had to sell a couple of years ago since the heel didn’t fit. A bit like meeting an old girlfriend for the first time in years. You only see how lovely they are at first, but then as you spend some time with them you remember the problematic parts that made you go separate ways.

I’ve always loved the very curved shapes of Bestetti’s lasts, unfortunately it was this that also made them not work for me. Always annoying when you are attracted to something that’s not good for you.
