The Clean Lines of Masaru Okuyama
Masaru Okuyama doesn’t make crazy unique shoes like many of the Japanese bespoke shoemakers out there, but one thing that you can always count on with regards to his shoes are the finessed laser-like lines to his lasts, welts, heels etc. His shoes always look flawless and beyond perfect. I think that he just might also be the master of the wholecut, as I am always astounded when I see his take on it (as shown below).
If you are ever in Hong Kong you must look him up. I didn’t get a chance to when I was there and I regret it. But I will next time.
