Here’s a large collection of images of my latest bespoke pair from Japanese Yohei Fukuda, a 3 eyelet derby in light brown vintage Freudenberg leather. Superbly made shoes well worth taking a closer look at. Also a reminder that the qualification to the World Championships in Shoe Shining and Shoe Patina closes on Sunday.

 

 

 


 

 

A reminder that the qualification to the finals of the World Championships in Shoe Shining and the first World Championships in Shoe Patina, both contests organised together with Saphir, is closing on Sunday. Finals take place at the London Super Trunk Show on March 23. The patina finalists will paint their shoes during the whole event, and the shoe shiners have 20 minutes to shine one shoe as beautiful as possible. Read everything about it in this article.
