    I stumbled on the pages below on dressy.net. Dang do the Japanese have access to some great shoes. Anyway, I am intrigued by these, but Googles beta version of Japanese/English is a very weak alpha at best. Any idea: a) who makes each, b) what the model is called. Any other details from the japanese would be appreciated. 1. http://www.dressy.net/mens/shoes/closueup/041029.htm 2. http://www.dressy.net/mens/shoes/closueup/040815_01.htm 3. http://www.dressy.net/mens/shoes/closueup/041210.htm (alright, the latter is a little fey, but great toe box, nonetheless) Thanks in advance.

    I don't really have time to translate the whole thing.  The author seems very interested in describing the way the shoes are made.

    1. made by Henry Beguelin locaed on Elbe Island in the Italian province of Tuscany. The model name doesn't seem to be listed. There is a telephone number for the manufacturer TEL.078-391-6647.  The author waxes about the fact that this leather is treated to look like crock, but it isn't.  Apparently the maker also has leather tol look like elephand and hippo.

    2.  Enzo Bonafe side lace up plain toe. YOu can purchase the shoe at a shoe shop in Tokyo. The author suggests that most other shops do not carry this model.
