Below are some of the pictures I took when I received my MAIN D`OR pair (the same one above) a while ago at Murata-san`s atelier Brown baby calf (looks darker under a cloudy day). Baby calf was a nightmare to work with, according to Murata-san. Coupled with English style hollowed trees After 2 trial shoes (the second one with 1 month trial time), the fitting is damn near perfect! Murata-san checking the fit Looking good! The lasts are being marked immediately. ...
Here are more of our store`s bespoke J-shoes for your eyes MAIN D`OR by Eiji Murata Adelaide Oxfords Brown Baby Calf A lovely pair of shoes by Eiji Murata.

The outsole is machine stitched, but like other Japanese 9/10 handmade shoes I`ve seen around, stitching and detailing visible on the...
JAPAN SHOES EXPO 21015 10/28~11/10 I`ve read things about it before, but this event is happening right now at ISETAN MEN`S Shoes` Floor. The event brings together only Japanese shoemakers and manufacturers . Should be quite interesting for anyone who can make it... Aside from YOHEI FUKUDA and MARQUESS, Nao Yokoo is a English trained newcomer in the bespoke scene.
