The picture - Curvy back

Certainly aesthetically pleasing, albeit maybe not the most feet accommodating shape, but the backs of the now sadly deceased Italian shoemaker Riccardo “Freccia” Bestetti certainly stood out. This photo is of a sample where the shape was even more exaggerated, but also on regular customer shoes the backs were very curvy.


Having owned two pairs of Bestetti shoes myself, loving the shape and fit in general, the heels never really worked for me unfortunately, due to this shape. I have sensitive feet, I know others with less such have no problems with them, but sure it’s a case of going for design over function. Nonetheless got to love the look.
