Vash gets my vote

This thread is awesome, wonderful craftmanship.
But those heels are just ridiculous
^^that's a ladies' shoe, must be with that heel.
Ah, the joys of ordering a Bespoke...
The blog post says that the client requested the waist / heel to be tight and minuscule as possible.
~What a sight ... I did not know before this shoemaker. What do you think? Those who have already experienced what do you think? It has a really high level of finish
The waist/heel tapering is part exaggerated by the very strong Cuban heel and part exaggerated by comparing it with a much larger shoe with outside squared inside beveled waist. The left shoe also has seemingly higher arch as well.
Not sure if that's a Cuban heel or just high heel... Very interesting choice indeed.
Gianni, welcome to the world of Japanese artisans. They are the only people that I know in this world that will take everything the Nth degree. Please start from the 1st page and be prepared to be amazed. Check out TYE Shoemaker especially. Even his test shoes will put most other cordwainers' actual shoes to shame. Nutcracker deserves an award or something just for this thread.
