I have to say that Japanese men are hands down the most bold when it comes to creating bespoke shoes, at least from what I have seen. This pair by Stefano Bemer, which I borrowed from some Japanese person’s Flickr site, has to be one of the coolest designs that I have ever seen. While the shoe is relatively simple itself, the coloring and detailing of the leather is just amazing and incredibly unique. This, to me, is what defines the beauty of bespoke. Getting a great fit is wonderful and all but creating a shoe that is going to be 1 of 1, is another feeling in itself, especially when people approach you and ask where you got your shoes. Well, this post brings 2010 to an end and I wanted to thank all of my readers and say that I hope that you have enjoyed my site as much as I have enjoyed writing it for you. May you all have a Happy New Year!!!! See you in 2011!

  1. Javier – In all honesty, I have no idea. That is something done in the leather tannery, a place I have never been nor will have the slightest clue about. Sorry.

  2. It looks to me like the rib effect might be stamped into the leather, and the colours hand painted afterwards. The only other option I could imagine is painting the lines on with dense acrylics, but that wouldn’t be very robust in the longer term.
