Cuban heels work best on ankle boots.

I sort of like cuban heels if there is a more slight angle. These shoes still are quite beautiful. Seems like a slighty angled heel is more bespoke in style.

Man, is this the Cuban heels section of the site? Jeez, all that pretty leather and not a looker in the bunch.

Japan, there is a two year wait list but there are reports that Mr. Suzuki is not taking anymore customers at the moment.

My sentiments exactly. Looks like a woman's shoe from the back.

It depends on the degree I think. In a typical men's shoe the heel at a full 90 degree angle can be too block shaped. In a bespoke with a beveled waist and other lighter looking features seems to go well with some craftsmanship on the heel lest it be out of proportion.

but if you look at shoes from time gone by, a lot of them were like this, i guess it is a test to how confident you are with style!

Thank you, centipede. A base price of 262, 000 yen strikes me as an incredible bargain.
And luk-cha, I think you are right. This heel (pitched or cuban) is a true part of the historical bespoke shoe aesthetic. It looks unusual to us because it is so unlike what we are used to seeing on even the best rtw shoes--the past couple of decades have produced an increasingly heavy profile. But this looks fresh and interesting to me. It kind of grows on you if you give it a chance. The heel is the new waist!
