Koji Suzuki - Page 2

post #16 of 25
Try Massimo Bizzochi down in the meatpacking district and Bergdorf. Your inquiiry raises such a broad range of options, however, that you really need to put in some legwork to try to narrow the range, then come back and seek input on quality, if that's what you'd like. By the way, where'd you come up with Koji Suzuki -- you do understand that he's on the higher end of the high-end list, right?

Indeed, but still the search for similar shoes continues.

Stopped by Bergdorf's today. The majority of their shoes have the blunt round/square time rather than the finer triangle point. :/

Honestly I think that men are moving away from pointed toes to more chisel shaped ones among the knowledgeable "shoescenti" so the models are getting hard to find. Cesar Paciotti used o have (and maybe still does) a lot of pointed toes. I don't think the construction is great on those however.

I think that's a shame, I really like the more refined pointed toe. I found a pair of Docle & Gabanna sued shoes with a pointed toe and really like the fit and look. But I need something in regular for a more professional setting.

I'm still not sure I understand what you mean by a pointed toe. Is it something like this Spigola elastic-sided whole cut lace-up? (What a mouthful! But I think this is one of Suzuki's most breathtaking creations):

Or perhaps more like one of these:

Thanks again to centipede for hosting this wonderful resource!

Though both of those are beautiful, I doubt that they're what he's interested in, as neither is particularly pointy -- especially the second pair, which has a soft but distinct squaring on the toe.

Well, I ask because lockey2k initially mentioned Suzuki (whom I don't associate with a winkel-picker toe) and because there's really no standard universally-accepted definition of a pointed toe (except perhaps in the most extreme instances). I thought looking at some pictures might help refine the search. And there's never a bad time to look at some of Koji Suzuki's shoes--certainly not in a thread bearing his name!

I like the first picture more. I prefer the elongated front.

In that case look at Corthay. His website is given in one of the stickies at the top of the SF.

What is the price range? I really like his Arca shoe.
