    I've had them on and they look and feel pretty good. But I don't generally wear shoes I make for myself until they've been on the shelf for a while for potential customers to see.

    As I said, I learned a lot from these shoes...and that's the glamour shot. :cool2:

    Not to worry...eventually. I'm still looking at them. Thinking a flat lace might be better.

    We are very proud to announce the first World Championships in Shoemaking, organised by Shoegazing and The Shoe Snob, in collaboration with Kirby Allison’s Hanger Project. The final takes place during the London Super Trunk Show on April 7 2018. In the prize pool is £6,000 (€6,700 / $8,000), plus all podium placed shoes will be exhibited at the Isetan Men's department store in Tokyo, and at other stores in various locations around the world. One fully handmade black cap toe oxford with single leather sole is to be made, and the criteria that will be judged are the degree of difficulty and the execution of the making, but also the overall design/aesthetics. We hope that both large, well-established firms and lesser-known one man operations will participate. Read all about the World Championships in Shoemaking, and how to enter, here. And please spread the word!

    Cross post from Japanese shoes thread: Received my fourth bespoke pair from Yohei Fukuda. An adelaide model he has made for previous bespoke customers which I really loved, and managed to find the perfect brown leather for it, IMO. Fit is really good, and think they look amazing. A bunch of pics (more can be found on my blog):
