Koji Suzuki

post #1 of 71
Thread Starter 
Gents,

These just arrived last week. It has been a long wait. Honestly, I forgot what they were supposed to look like. The shoes are, however, well worth the waiting period. The leather is very supple, very thin, not regular calf skin. Koji warned me that the shoes would withstand less abuse than regular calf skin leather. The shoes are very light. The workmanship is incredible; Koji does not disappoint. The fit and finish of the shoes are fantastic.

Please excuse my photography skills. They do not justifiably represent the beauty of the shoes but will have to do.

Wow talking about the ultimate Christmas present.  One pair of shoes from Delos and another pair from Suzuki!!!

 

Such a lucky man. 

 

What kind of Calf skin is it and how many baby seals are sacrificed to get past Suzuki's wait list?

Very beautiful! I'm delighted that the shoes fit you well, and meet (exceed?) your expectations.

 

One question: was the thinner/more supple leather part of your concept for the shoe's purpose, or a recommendation from the maker?

Fantastic indeed. As I recall Spigola shoe trees are also very light and sculptured.....

I've been told that only the big French houses (Lobb, Berluti) can get the really nice leather.

What say you with your experiences?

These are custom/bespoke for your feet?

That's about the only lovely thing I see.
