Il Micio di Hidetaka Fukaya Featured

Mr. Hidetaka Fukaya has been binding fine leather and strong soles to create bespoke men's shoes and the travel necessaires for almost twenty years.

A world of sophisticated clientele make it a point to come to the atelier with the anticipation of having their own pair of custom shoes. The designer's meticulous attention to detail includes handmade sketches, leather swatches, fine wood and kilometres of string. After graduating from his fashion studies in Japan and completing further studies in Siena, Fukaya specialises in curvy shoe structures that hold and complement each client's shape and size. Each pair of bespoke shoes is so studied, the artisan products just 70 pairs per year, apart from a capsule collection sold in Japan. The result is an eloquent pair of soles that will walk the world with you.
