U.S.A. Mr. Steven Taffel

〈Steven's Shoes.〉


今回ご紹介する三足の靴は、ニューヨークとシカゴにある靴のセレクトショップ「Leffot」のオーナー、Mr. Steven Taffelからご注文いただいたものです。名立たるブランドの既製靴の取り扱いはもちろん、そうしたブランドの受注会も随時行っていて、私達も年に一度のトランクショーのみ開催させていただいています。








〈Steven's Shoes〉


Allow us to introduce 3 pairs of shoes ordered by Mr. Steven Taffel, the owner of "Leffot". "Leffot" is a select shop for shoes and accessories located in both New York and Chicago. They sell ready to wear shoes from famous brands, and hold trunk shows for these brands. We also hold trunk shows there once a year.

All the design choices for his shoes were derby styles in brown suede leather. It can be said that his choice of the casual derby style and comfortable suede leather expresses the idea of smart casual, which is probably many Americans’ favorite style. Actually, many customers visited our US trunk shows and chose the same combination as his first pair, a split toe in suede leather.

Steven had engaged in customers service-related work for a long time, and he still welcomes his customer himself even though he is the owner. It seems just like when someone invites friends to his home, so there is a familiar and relaxing atmosphere in his shop. Customers also visit to meet him and enjoy shopping after hearing his advice. We think his customers visit his shop not for just shopping, but for getting his recommendations. It was a fresh feeling for us to see there are these kind of close relationships based on trust between a shop owner and his customers. And it comes from Steven and his attractive character. We are very proud that we could make shoes for him.
