The stuff also has a battery operated ventilation fan, and 4 sets of seat belts/harnesses, though helmets would be nice biggrin.gif
Theres storage under the floor to keep food, water and battery, and extra weight keeps the ball upright on water.
The ball can also withstand 9 tons of crushing force.

Yeah, Corno Blu shoes, especially the high end MTO ones, have the best fit and finish among the factory made shoes in Japan, IMO

Nice B-M! Thanks for the pics. I know Higuchi (Cagra) trained at Guild for 5 years, and he also has some experience making shoes in the UK. He must be the go-to shoemaker in Hokkaido.

The red polishing towels are made and sold by Brift H. They're just long strips of cotton flannel


I assume the white towels you're referring to are these polish remover towels like these

M.Mowbray Remover Cloth

Hi NC, i just read whole 72 page and want to say what a great thread you have, opened my eyes to whole new world of bespoke and MTO.

 

Have a question about MTO, i read your post here that you recommend those artisan

http://www.styleforum.net/t/343005/japanese-shoes-bespoke-rtw-super-thread/645#post_6347987

 

After seeing all the shoe arts at this thread i have preference for Spigola and osamu egawa shoes.

Do you know how long it takes to finish MTO handsewn from trial fitting? i'm planning to visit tokyo at 11 august and staying for 7 days. I'm hoping i could order MTO shoes for my visit there.

 

Thanks

Thanks for your compliment! If you're planning to stay in Tokyo for 7 days, you may want to select a maker who does handmade MTO without a trial session. o.e., Clematis, Yohei Fukuda, Hiro Yanagimachi, and Spigola comes up to mind.
o.e. takes up to 2 months for completion. Spigola: 4 months, and Clematis and Yohei Fukuda takes 10 months+

Unfortunately, Spigola shoes are available in Tokyo only through their quarterly Trunk Shows (happening next week, and probably not for another 4 months)
