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).
