The urushi leather is fun. I spoke to some suppliers about using it, but it's really expensive and apparently doesn't have any positive features about it apart from being urushi and a great texture. Maybe you've heard otherwise?They were both made as bespoke samples to showcase some of his possibilities. I recall him saying that the waist for the blue one was made really thin and borderline impractical.
The jet black sole on the black/burgundy one was finished in a method he said was inspired by Japanese lacquer (urushi), by applying and polishing layers after layers. Very pretty indeed but again not so practical for wearing lol
