The Guild of Craft - Japanese Bespoke Boot and ShoemakerWhen talking about bespoke shoemakers we tend to to talk about a craft that is "only" making shoes for the men, however that is not true. Any respectable shoemaker can make shoes for our better half too. So gents, when bespeaking your shoes, do not forget the Lady.
In my quest for the Japanese bespoken shoes, I came across the Guild of Craft a Japanese bespoke boot and shoe maker. The depicted items below are from an exhibition in France by the Guild.
Look at those ladies boot and shoes, feminine, sex appealing, refined, delicate, sensible, teasing, soft, tender, add all the positive adjectives you wish.
