〈Being flexible to make light shoes.〉


Can you see the difference in the soles between these 2 pairs of chukka boots? These boots were ordered by the same customer. He had already ordered some pairs of shoes from us and wanted a casual pair of shoes next. So he chose chukka boots. 

We made the dark brown ones first. He liked the style and comfortable fitting of the suede leather, but he felt they were a little bit heavy. So we suggested to him to change the material of the soles for his next pair. 

We used a lighter and more flexible sole unit for his next pair that he ordered from us in the beige color. He liked them very much because this sole material matched how he wanted to wear them, such as relaxing times during business trips or holidays in light clothing. 

Some people may think this is unsuitable for "classic and durable" bespoke shoes. But we think it was a rather meaningful choice from the viewpoint of the essential meaning of bespoke ― that is, to make shoes that fit the customer's wish. And it is also a great pleasure that we can learn new things and get new ways to suggest things to customers by meeting customers' wishes.

Now, his first chukka boots in the dark brown color have also been changed into the same lighter and more flexible sole unit.
