Is that a triple oak sole? I haven't seen any other triple oak sole-jobs besides Dincklacker.
Thanks a lot !
I am greatly honored by your words.
Emori has invited me to his atelier on Wednesday. I am based in London and have never had bespoke shoes before
As I am going to start working soon (yes, I am only 22, but have not started my full-time grad job yet), I will not have a chance to pop back to Tokyo for quite some time (at least a year), so I am worried about going bespoke; Emori said he sends the trial shoes by international post.
The other options are Spigola (again, I'm curious as to whether this amount of money can be justified) or a pair of RTWs for half the price. I picked up some brilliant Miyagi Kyogo monk-straps yesterday. What do you guys recommend?
I'd assumed it was glued on, too, which almost seems a shame given the beauty of the shoe. I can see why, though.
What I'm wondering is how much stress there is on the cementing with the sole shaped around that London waist? I'd like a report from Nutcracker every six months of wear. :)
It certainly looks pretty extraordinary, though.
