Shoemaking isn't like the auto industry, every factory is rather rudimentary, having people operating machines using skill instead of an entirely automated process. Amount of handwork will vary from brand to brand even in the same factory. I have never visited the one he uses to produce now but his shoes are quite well made if that is what you're worrying about. Most of the stuff I wear day in day out, right now 3 pairs of boots (white Yohjis, black Balenciaga and grey Margielas) is not at that level and it holds on fine. A1923 and CCP are fashion products made to a good standard in factories that know what they're doing using interesting materials, shapes and colours, pick the ones you want at the price you want to pay and don't worry too much about comparing them.
