But I think he just has two different lasts that you can choose though lurker[1].gif

There are only 2 lasts (square and round?), but I also recall he can have them made in any width.

Blind welt mean? I can't sure what you said is what I understand.

Anyway, his MTO sole now more or less look like G&G deco sole

Blind welt refers to the welt at the waist being cut very close to the uppers and being concealed as far as possible. Giving a sleek, beveled appearance. I believe most Japanese makers do this.

Actually it's the holdfast cut more towards the center of the insole so all of the welt is completely hidden underneath the insole.

The outsole stitchings is then very skillfully sewn on

Can be done at the waist only or all the way around.

I think Masaru now doing the blind welt at the waist on his MTO, similar to the G&G deco

Where can we order Mr. O's MTO shoes?

post #3703 of 4060
Go to his showroom in Wanchai, Hongkong, or trunk show in Bangkok, Singapore, Taiwan, Mainland China and Japan, or send him a email

Is there some equivalent of SF but then Japanese? And what are the Japanese forums about high end shoes?

 

I love the Japanese styles!

Actually again, for a blind welt you hide the welt and the stitches by leaving more of the outsole at the edge and then pull it over the welt covering it completely. You can see it in this post, Meccariello does the common thing and then Hiro Yanagimachi does a blind welt at the waist: http://shoegazing.se/english/2015/11/04/competition-winners-and-answers-of-find-the-difference/
Back in the days when you referred to a bevelled waist, it was a one with a blind welt, nowadays it's just the rounded shape.
