I caught a glimpse of these incredible bespoke blue shoes by Main D’or (Eiji Murata) and I was blown away. I mean, I am not going to lie and say that they are the most practical of shoe nor that the cap is nothing shy of wild, but I see them and they immediately capture my attention and admiration. And that blue, it is about as vivid as blue gets, especially on leather. Let us not forget the brogueing detail too, which consists of only larger holes very close together and with what looks to be the tiniest gimping ever. All the details together simply make this shoe one of the most intriguing that I have seen in a long while. Yet another maker to visit whenever I get to Japan, one day or another!!
