Sak, Shoemaker

Feature

July, 2010

Born in Japan, Ryusaku Hiruma studied cobbling at Cordwainers before relocating to Florence, Italy.

“A shoe is an important instrument,” explains the master craftsman who, for nearly a decade, has pursued the trade in its truest home. “Rather than giving some character to my work,” says Ryusaku, “I’m more satisfied if the one wearing the shoes is happy and enjoying it.” In addition to furthering his own craft, the apprentice-turned-master now also invites other Japanese cobblers to do the same.

  • Nikki I love too converse with Converse. I have a pair of black patent leather con-v's and even if I have no where to go it makes me want to have a place to go....You will never enjoy walking unless you have a pair on....style and comfort...As a woman what I love most about the con-v, is it's non-trendy, classic-chic appeal that I can wear with some jeans and throw back on at night with a sexy mini dress....
