1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    MTO shoe from Japanese Hiro Yanagimachi, made to the same standard as his bespoke shoes. On his new international last. A clinically made shoe, and in my eyes the most beautiful split toe derby available, with a perfect balance between last shape and pattern. The upper leather is very delicate parts of an aniline dyed leather from the French tannery Annonay. It is probably the shoe with the finest materials that I've ever owned. These are MTO in UK10, which unfortunately turned out to be on the small side for me now when I've worn them a bit, so these will be replaced with the same model on modified semi bespoke last.

    Completely handmade with bevelled blind welted waist. Including lasted shoe trees. Have only been worn a couple of times, for shorter periods, and are in excellent condition. RRP € 2 200, and can only be ordered from Japan or on one of Hiro Yanagimachi's rare international trunk shows.

    Price €1190, excl shipping of €50 worldwide (€30 for Nordic countries).

    Razl: Nice

    ThinkDerm: Outside sole measurement is approximately 32 cm long and 11 cm wide at the widest point.

    I live in Sweden, and during winter we have gravel on all the road and pavements and it often takes a while before it's gone at all places in spring, so all leather soled shoes looks like that for a few weeks until it's all gone and you go a week and even it out again.

    measures seem slightly big for a UK 10

    4.33 inches wide and 12.5 inches long?

    We're pretty much the same size, and I use 10.5E in some lasts (EG82, 202, G&G), 10E in others(EG606,888).

    Yes that's correct in inches. They are not a small UK10, but wouldn't say to large either, quite standard overall IMO. Since the last is a bit pointy the toe is a little bit longer though, but heel to ball area is standard.
