Where can I find shoes like those? I know you can no longer get Suzuki shoes, but I would like to find a similar style of shoe. What style are they? Who makes them?

Thanks in advance.

p.s. by style i mean the elogated front with the point tip.

You could get another bespoke maker to try and make them for you.

Looking for something RTW, comfortable and sharp. I'm slowly losing patience with my kenneth coles after a long day of walking.

I'm sure if you posted a picture of a shoe you liked somebody could suggest a rtw option.
In any case, you might want to stop and catch your breath on the way up from KC to KS.

'tis true. Any suggestions? I see lots of names being thrown around but never any real guide as to differing levels of qualities among makers.

Hahahaha...yes, seems like quite a gap to bridge there.

Which still begs the question? Any suggestions?

There are certain French, English, and Italian bespoke makers who probably don't have that extensive a waiting list.

For example, Roberto Ugolini, and Gaziano & Girling.

In case you haven't heard, Tony Gaziano is coming to the States this week and will be visiting three cities. Its pretty likely that he could make up something along the lines of what you're looking for. However, you must be prepared (financially) to make the commitment. Also, Kiton makes a pretty attractive shoe with a narrow toe, and others may as well. To find out more about either, search this site as well as AAAC.

Between bespoke and KC are do any RTW makers craft such shoes?

Pierre Corthay in Paris sells shoes with elongated pointed tips.

Crockett & Jones has a new last with a sharper chisel (the 348 last?) -- it should be available from places like Pediwear, www.plal.com and maybe some Ralph Lauren shops, as well as Richard James.

Kenneth Cole is junk, overpriced, overmarketed and oversold. Between it and Koji Suzuki is a world of shoes of decent to excellent quality.
