Dear Gentlemen,
I will try to explain my view to the Bespoke landscape of coded messages, by showing some of my creations and talk a little bit about how ideas combined with needs turns into a shoe! This blue "Square Point Derby" as I call it, is inspired by the customers extraordinary interest for shoes. He actually started as a shoe salesman by the age of twelve and by the time he was sixteen he was in charge of the hole store. For me, this blue Square Point Derby is a good example of a customer who knew exactly what he wanted, it shows that he has guts and are willing to go all the way out! I said to him; "The only thing these shoes requires is a perfectly matching suit, otherwise you may risc looking like a pimp!" He said; "Yes, you are right, they are just balancing on that edge, I better be careful showing off then!"
I have seen him in the right suit and I can assure you he looked absolutely exceptional! He was very happy!
The flap at the back of the heel is a built in shoe-horn, you flip it up, grip it with your fingers and pull the shoe on.
Upper; Italian Blue Antiqued Baby Calf. Sole; 1/4"inch. Stitches; 10"inch. Waist; Bevelled. Heel; Standard leather with rubber tip.
Hope you enjoy it!

Damn, that looks like an amazing shoe. I wouldn't wear it in blue, because I'm not that eccentric, but in a nice brown, or merlot color I would definitely rock that shoe. Good work and great creativity.

my curiosity is raised by the idea of what kind of suit would match this unusual shoe.

A pair of navy blue shoes is on my very, very long list of things to get - I think they'd be fun for both navy and cream suits.

Dear Gentlemen,
You have got it all right! That is what it is all about, freedom to choose what suits your own personality. It requires a stomach though! Anyway, it is a part of what I mean lies within the understanding of bespoke.

While those shoes may not be exactly my sort of thing, I do find it infinitely cheering to see quality bespoke bravely striking out in this direction. These days far too much of the finite energy of bespoke artisans seems fixed on the veneration and adoration of business dress--to the exclusion of many of the finer things in life. At one time the range was much broader, what with all the country/casual clothes and loungewear a gentleman was expected to have.
Here's to you, Mr. Myhre!

Wow, that shoe is sharp. It's also benefitted from good photography. Could I justify something like that? Must ponder...
