Hiroki Nakamura was in the building on Monday and Tuesday of this week. The guy is a real pleasure to be around and definitely has some very reasonable and specific sensibilities that you don’t run into as much as you’d like to. I took a few photos while he was here, one of an amazingly nice leather jacket (that he has on in one of the shots), and another of a sample boot. Note with the boot that the sole construction is going to be of higher quality and will include a skin stitch.

Florsheim by Duckie Brown
The Florsheim by Duckie Brown designers came through the other day and brought with them a ubiquitous brown paper bag filled with shoes that were anything but. You can see some of the shoes here.
Ryan Plett was also in on the day, and happened to have his (much fancier than mine) camera. Thanks for the images!
