Just before heading to bed, I took one last look on Pinterest – and came across this shoe! Of course I followed this Japanese shoemaker around social media, and am amazed and inspired by his work. I would like to take one little feature and use it to enliven shoes that I make, such as the stitching on the heel piece. What fun he has brought to the world! Except now I’ll never get to sleep, as visions of these shoes dance in my head! (Ellen, this link is for you!)
