Shoes for Japanese

Keito Totsuka

Handmade classic men’s shoes, steer leather, 2020.

In Japan, the history of shoes is not as long as in European countries, and most people do not choose shoes that fit their feet. If Japanese people continue to wear shoes without paying attention to them, their feet will become deformed and they will end up wearing shoes like this one. We created these shoes to encourage people to rethink their feet, which are often referred to as the second heart, and to wear shoes that fit them.
