I'd never have the balls to try such a thing. Those of you that own them know that the toe of the newer releases (some of the UK-made ones are better) is much rounder (from the side) than the OGs.

This is more Ben's expertise. Smile

Indeed Mike, the newer 1500s (Flimby made or not) don't have as nice a shape as the older ones - pretty much why i don't pick em up anymore...if you're speaking to a sole swap, yeah thats a headache to try...personally never did one, but i knew a fella who commissioned a shoemaker to do a swap and it turned out pretty good...then again he used the older upper (of the Chianti 1500) with that of a newer 1500 sole...BUT then decided to sell it...never asked why...you can't really reshape the toe box otherwise without actually changing the whole shoe...
