Multi-brand trunk show in Shanghai, most likely the first of its kind ever in the city. Oct 10th, Mattina, SlimShoes and other brands were there, including some independent shoemakers. The distributor for Carlos Santos was present and he showed the new high-end hand grade line. There was also a shoe-shining competition. I should have taken more pictures but you get the idea.

Aweome! Hopefully next time travel will be less restricted and more of us will be able to attend in person!


For some commentary on the shoemaking competition as well. Some creative pattern design work on display (whack the link into google translate)

Anyone had a chance to try Mori of Shoemakers by chance and know how the sizing runs and how they are in real life? Looks like they restocked their stitched black cap toe that looks great.

I can confirm. They were there at the trunk show and one of the owners speaks perfectly English. I am tempted myself, their lasts 5 and 7, with a chiseled toe, leave nothing to be desired to the Decos of the world.

I'd love to find out more about this brand, but it doesn't appear all that easy to do so. Do you know if they have an online presence that I'm not finding?

Taobao is life: https://shop128683966.taobao.com/. You might have to register an account to see all of their inventory.

I believe I have or can get you the wechat of one of the owners. In China, wechat is the equivalent of whatsapp and taobao is eBay.

They also have an Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/slimshoesofficial/.

If I can be of help, feel free to DM me.

If you don't have wechat, I recommend you install it. Slimshoes has a mini store on wechat and their catalog includes 150 shoes and counting.

The only thing I dont like about wechat is its data collection policies. at least on IG I can use google voice, temp email etc. But Wechat only works with my phone # right?
Their IG has had a post since 2020. email?
