Japanese Shoemaking Shoe Porn (At it’s finest my friends)

Anybody fancy donating me a round trip ticket from London to Tokyo? Because I really just can’t handle it anymore, I have to go!!! Seriously, there is nothing really more that I can say to describe the phenomenal work that Japanese shoemakers do. The detailing on this spectator above is beyond earthly description. I mean even if you did not like spectators or two toned shoes, one could simply not say that they don’t appreciate its beauty. Even the rest of the shoes. You may not love them nor even really like them, but you must appreciate the thought, passion and craft that goes into them. And that is what I love about Japanese shoemakers: their desire to go above and beyond, to create things that no one else has, or to do something that has been done style wise, but put a twist on it that is unique to them. The double monk below is example of that. Something similar has been done, but not exactly the same. That little twist however makes it stand miles apart…..anyway, I could go on and on, but I need to get to other things…should you wish to dive head deep into it, you can find the source of these photos, plus many,many more, here at Style Forum

Have a lovely weekend,
