No, as you can go bespoke for that money.

According to the link it sounds like it is basically the Bottier Ligne, but with only the two styles pictured available....I'll have to take a look at the end of the year.

In Japan???? Yes.

Outside Japan... eh, probably not. They are what we might call a "self-selective market."

$4k seems high to me, even for Japan, but then again a customer in Japan that really wants Gomez will need to spend at least that amount to go to Paris x2.

Aren't they saying the man Gomez himself makes the shoes from start to end? He has quasi-celebrity status in Japan. Kinda like the EG Dover Man. Thus the premium

Who cares the money and the Japanese.

The shoes are nice. I love C&J et j'aime la france! I would love to meet Dimitri Gomez to see his work.

Those look nice - quite unlike a lot of the special Dimitri Gomez for C&J styles that I've seen.

4k seems crazy though.
