There are some remarkable shoes out there that are not made in Japan, so much as I like contributing to the Japanese shoe thread, I don't see why we can't have a thread devoted to amazing shoes from elsewhere.

Leather art, for sure, but unfortunately they appear to be all style and no substance. It is not a practical design. I just can't imagine wearing something like that for very long at all! Sorry. :(

No need to apologise! In Justin Fitzpatrick's article on this, he notes that "wearability" was not a criterion, and he analogises such shoes to concept cars.

@RogerP @momsdoc

The last two shoes (well, boot and shoe) posted above look to be right up Roger P or Momsdoc alley: elegant shoes/boots, beautiful looking construction and with a real pop of style.
Actually, I thought Flanderian had just sneaked into RogerP's shoe cabin and taken photos. ;)

Don't believe so.
However, these are Roger's! :happy:

There was absolutely no element of chance involved in that bet you suggested. Yes indeed, I am in leather art lust once again, but there is a fair degree of similarity between this new love and the Cheaney's you encouraged me to consider not so very long ago.

Clearly the shine on my Cheaney's is long overdue for some much needed attention, but those Vass beauties do have quite a lot of visual appeal going for them, as well. What to do...what to do? :crazy:
