    I don't think Mr. B is the lastmaker, I think Emori use Japanese lastmaker.

    fwiw, the toe shape looks pretty "strange". is this house style or phantasy?

    the knob on the trees looks like kalman berta(paprika). seems he is the lastmaker. how small this world is...

    It's hard to tell from your pictures, but is the shoe itself a very dark purple or does it just have a purple lining?
    Just purple lining in dark brown
    ^^^ quite nice these are!
    Thanks

The toe shape is not the same, he usually does, I like classic shoes but wanted to give these something "special". the knob on the trees looks like kalman berta(paprika). seems he is the lastmaker. how small this world is...
    Trees are made in Japan, then customized by Daizo.

    then they use the same machine and wood, which isn't a bad thing either.

    what's about the toe shape?

    Trees are round toe: no change on them, shoes are a "serre d'aigle à bout muflÃ[​IMG]" dont know how this should be translated.

    What difference it makes? Except for esthetic reasons - their shape will not change so toes do not need any support, no?

    no need to translate. just wanted to know if this is a phantasy creation or one of their specialties.

    Thanks for the feedback and agree it can't please everybody: it is the non consensual part of the shoes and a personal choice but the reason I posted here is mainly for people to discover this guy's work.

    Agree on this and yes trees are smaller and narrower so toes are not pushed/forced by them.
    Well, I could have bother him further asking for square toes but I truly believe they do their job so I am fine with them.
