Totally agree with you. There's a huge gap for this shoe in NY and Japan:
With the current USDJPY exchange rate, these shoes are ridiculous! We're talking $1250 before delivery IF you can find a size that fits you.
I like the V-Tip so I jumped on it. I have lots of cap toes from Moulded - Medallion, Plain, Perf, etc - too many caps... NST in Shell #8 would make me very happy but I don't see that happening. Check out Leathersoul for a nice display of V-Tips - Tom sells a ton of them on Barrie and other lasts (not on ML).
