Yohei Fukuda never ceases to amaze not only with elegant shoes, amazing craftsmanship but now even in shoe design where he takes it to the next level with this cross between a monkstrap and a button shoe. I have never seen anything quite like it. It has 3 things going on. The cut/shape of a French style 1/2 eyelet derby but then has that sweeping like monkstrap bit of leather while topping it all off with a closing done by button. And what is created is a super elegant shoes that I could easily see replacing an oxford, even being an open facing shoe.

This just happens to be a bespoke shoe but how cool would that be if it was released via RTW? Pretty awesome in my book. Let’s see if Yohei feels the same 😉
