Le Scarpe di Cabiria (Toshiaki Wada) Diamond Captoed Oxford `Seven Sisters Shoes` A highly unusual pair of bespoke shoes made from a patchwork of exotics. Captoe: 200yrs old Russian Reindeer Vamp & Quarter: Ilcea Calf Lacestay: Crocodile Heel Counter: Elephant Tongue: Sea Turtle Quarter Lining: Kid Suede Sock: Ostritch Le Scarpe di Cabiria FB
I`m afraid to see the rest of his Legolas outfit....
Props from the latest The Hobbit movie? These are actually bespoke shoes by Saion, (faithfully) based on their client`s design & drawings. Outrageous design? Yes, but I commend Saion for doing their best to realise their client` dream. Couldn`t have done better. Client`s own drawings link (from Saion`s blog archive)

These Saion wholecuts (from 6yrs ago) aren`t seamless.I highly doubt Spigola will turn down your request for a seemless one.I know his wholecuts look spectacular, I will definitely look forward to see what you come up with him!
Having spoken with Yokoyama-san recently, I learned that Saion has closed its atelier at ABC Mart, Ginza. The brand will relaunch itself as a Bespoke-only operation (no more pattern order / MTO), available via appointment only. The price is also scheduled for a change, and he plans to make it more accessible/lower. Their excellent MTO shoes were basically identical to bespoke shoes in construction (minus the last), for less than half the money. While its unfortunate...
