My adventure in oxford shoes recraft! - Page 2

Thanks for all the great compliments! However I don't want to give a wrong impression that I did the job myself lookaround.gif,

it was done at a professional repair shop fing02[1].gif

btw here is a pic of some the choices of colors I had for Vibram Eton soles: purple, (flaming) red, orange, white, navy

whether you did it yourself or not, i'm sure it was your design work at the least.

It was a leather sole that you replaced?

Great idea and stellar execution

Thanks for your post. I think that's the first time i've seen the Vibram Eton on a shoe. The colors are interesting. I'm surprised they don't make tan, brown, or burgundy.
Dainite makes a brown sole, iirc. True Nick?

If you're planning on wearing these in a formal setting, perhaps dark-blue laces would work better -- so that the original shade (blue) would only be seen in sunlight. In office lighting the laces would seem black. I feel the new soles are an excellent choice!

Thanks for all the comments! Yeah, there were several Dainite brand colored soles too, but no blue from them!

oh there's plenty of Japanese bespoke makers around, I think most of them have been mentioned here on SF.

Too bad the strong yen make their pretty shoe less enticing for international buyers dozingoff.gif


Fukuda Yohei apprenticed under Ian Wood (Lobb London), and worked at the bespoke department in EG and Cleverley.
His style is decidedly Cleverley's, with all that chisel toe, continental waist, twisted last details.
check out his website,http://yoheifukuda.jp/ (slow site, but worth it)

Yes, dark brown. It's called "Sepia".
