There's one for the Spanish makers and one for Allen Edmonds - Why not one for the hand-welted shoes coming out of Asia? A place to share listings of these shoes and best finds if you stumble across something that someone else should pick up. Inspired by the High End Chinese Shoe Thread here: https://www.styleforum.net/threads/the-high-end-chinese-shoe-thread.665419/
and the Japanese RTW/Bespoke thread here: https://www.styleforum.net/threads/japanese-shoes-bespoke-rtw-super-thread.343005/

I'll start: If you're a size 8.5 there are some awesome prices on some stuff currently (not my size/not my listings):

This is a good idea. There's some great shoes coming out of Asia. Would be a nice way for someone to dip their toes by buying from a forum member.

Full disclosure, one of the listing above is mine. Should add that jmr928 means size UK8.5 aka US9.5 Happy dealhunting

Yeossal Thompson’s in saddle Horween hatch grain. Size 9.5UK on the SG65 last. Toe plates, topy, lasted trees, the whole 9 yards. Need to make room and these weren’t a great fit for me so didn’t get worn much and deserve to go to someone who would enjoy them.

It was. I’ve got a low instep and it was my first attempt. Closest comparison I’ve got would be Vass U last in 44. Should be a good fit for someone who is a 9.5/10.5 with a higher instep or a low volume 10/11.

Since I can’t figure out how to edit posts that far back - A reminder of a couple ground rules for using this thread that apply to the BST threads like the Spanish shoemakers thread that inspired this one.

If they are your shoes that you’re planning to list please make a listing on B&S and link to that in your post here. In this thread you can’t sell things directly with just pictures and a price, but it is a good place to throw those listings for guys who might miss them otherwise.

If you find things elsewhere that are not your listings please make sure you include the disclaimer that they aren’t your shoes and it isn’t your listing.

Happy hunting!
