Koronya's video is always very informative educational.  The other one I follow is Lisa Sorrell, cowboy boots maker.

Meister, I've only seen similar in-your-face spades in Isshi's collection. These are fun!

If you understand the mechanics, understand the materials, and think it though in an objective manner, you realize that it's either an oxymoron or an attempt to re-define the very definition of quality...ultimately in the direction of the lowest common denominator.

It was a joke. I would never purchase glued shoes, no matter how carefully they were made (aside from sneakers). I was still surprised at the level of care put into the construction of the shoes, however.

He put in a lot of care into that shoe. Although I did think to myself, "it's a shame they are glued..."

Funny, because that's probably what hand lasted aficionados think when they see Goodyear welted shoes from the likes of EG, GG, JLP smile.gif

Wow, really interesting all hand made w/o a single stitch. A lot depends on the quality of the glue I guess but quick work at the same time.
