    Oria, thanks for your question.The name is 'U E N O B E'. I have another image. So I will attach it. The designer is making shoes by hand! I think that's why price is so high! Have you ever seen this ? I do not know if it is sold in Europe and U.S. I found it in Japanese trade show.;)

    Hello everybody... I have not been reading or posting for a long time. I hope everyone is ok. I am not sure if you know a portugese young designer Gil Carvalho. I really like his work, a bit crazy, but no embelishment. Nice, clean and bold lines! www.gilcarvalho.com

    Yummy! I love this thread. Nothing like just seeing colorful shoes, classic shoes, textury shoes, etc... My only shoe problem is that most Japanese shoes don't come in large sizes. Sniff, sniff! :cry::argg::censored:

    You are right, softgrey - this is a fantastic thread!
    It would be worth to mention:
    http://www.minnaparikka.com/
    http://www.toklum.com/

    I am also a fan of L'Autre Chose, which is probably not a new company, but they deserve more attention. Does anybody know if they have a hp? Haven't been able to find it...

    leyla, I was just browsing the Courtney Crawford homepage, when you posted!
    Do you know why it isn't updated? There is only the 06/07 collection.

    nay-k,
    where are you?? i just realised that you had mentioned Courtney a while ago. he has such talent and to be honest (out of every single shoe designer i looked at) he is the only one hwo understands pure aesthetics. nothing fancy shmanzy, just pure class with a hint of an edge be it in the colour or the material

    here for everyones pleasure to (re)discover this young amazing and humble talent!

    They are stunning, leyla!

    brownsfashion.com has carried his shoes for a while, but I never saw any as beautiful as the snakeskin shoes you show.

    zarina,

    arent they just the most perfect shoe ever??? im sorry but im ecstatic about his shoes and that one in particular!!! :woot:

    i had a look at Toklum during the exhibtion but had a feeling they still need a season to strengthen the line... :unsure:
    they did however succeed in making their label look good ;)

    Also Rodolphe Menudier deserves more attention. Does anybody know if his shoes are available anywhere else than in the shop in Paris?
    Pics from his hp.

    They are wonderful indeed! :heart:

    In my opinion Toklum's first collection was far more original than the current. Many of the current styles, I find rather :sick:, but of course the brand as such is interesting.

    @ leyla: Yes courtney crawford is a genius. and I love the pictures of his shoes you posted! It's disappointing that his website isn't updated!

    Zoraide - does anybody own a pair of Zoraide shoes? I like very much the inspiration from the 1930's.
