For my first post I would like to express thanks to all those who have taken the time to post information on this forum. I spent a little bit of time on Ask Andy Forum, but got a little frustrated at the very slow load time. I'm especially interested in the topics that deal with shoes. Just curious about something. Has anyone visited the Cobbler's Website (Japan) at http://members.jcom.home.ne.jp/0376732901/? I have never seen someone with such a collection of high-end shoes. He posts new shoes periodically, many of which are bespoke. I contacted Jun regarding the website a number of months ago about his collection and although I don't recall the exact number, he indicated something in the range of over 200 bespoke shoes from the likes of Cleverly, Lobb, etc. Is anyone aware of other websites that have a sizable collection of shoes with photos? I'm attempting to live vicariously through others.

Japanese tend to uh, obsess over their obsessions. I know a guy who has over 300 recordings of the Liszt B minor sonata. Apparently too much is not enough.

I like http://www.zappos.com They have a good assortment of ready-to-wear shoes, including Allen Edmonds. Too bad they don't ship to international addresses :-(. bern

Great site. I wish I could read Japanese. I've learned a lot from it still.

I bet the guy is the life of the party. The scary thing are the framed portraits of the shoes. Really, at that point you have to start wondering.
Now I know how I am going to decorate my apartment.
