Oxford Plain Toe - Black Suede
Skomaker Dagestad by Santari is a project we have been working on for a long time.
Made in a small atelier in Asakusa Tokyo, these really are as close to the bespoke look you can possibly get. The last is developed by us and Santari to offer something not often available in high-end world of shoes - a beautiful classic round toe.
In terms of construction, they are hand sewn welted with hand stitched waist. This allows us to get a real blind welt, only possible by hand stitching.
Atsushi of Santari estimates he spends around 50 working hours per pair. That's a lot of hours!
The oxford plain toe illustrates how beautiful an understated classic shoe can get. The best materials and construction, and a special yet easy-to-wear pattern. Wear this as you would wear your oxford cap toes, black monks or loafers.
