〈Things we are looking forward to.〉


Allow us to introduce two pairs of shoes ordered by a customer and his friend during our last trunk show in Hong Kong.

The first customer came to be interested in our shoes through social media and he had been looking forward to the trunk show for a long time. Even though he doesn’t have bespoke shoes, he has a lot of experience with shoes. He understands the kind of fitting he wants from a shoe as well as the style he prefers. He likes shoe styles based on the classics that have something unique about them, so he ordered our original style monk strap shoes with wing tips. They were finished very nicely in a burgundy museum calf with a beveled waist sole.

The second customer, who is a friend of the first customer and joined the trunk show together with him, became interested in our shoes through his influence. He was looking forward to our trunk show, too. Getting some advice from his shoe friend, he seemed to enjoy the opportunity to interact with actual shoe samples/leather swatches and with being able to draw an image of the finished shoe in his mind. He decided to order our original ghillie shoes with the same upper leather and sole specification as the monk strap shoes. They turned out quite elegant because of these details. 

For us shoemakers, it is an honor for us that there are many people who are interested in our shoes and are waiting for us abroad. It raises our motivation for shoemaking even higher. We are looking forward to the trunk show when we are able to meet them. 

For a customer, a trunk show is a good place to meet a shoemaker in person and to see his shoes. It must be a fun experience that he/she can place a shoe order through talking with a shoemaker.

With the current pandemic, it is a pity that we cannot go abroad to hold trunk shows for the time being. But we are looking forward to meet many shoe lovers at our trunk shows again after this situation has settled down.
