The @clematis_ginza store is just a stone's throw away from Central Ginza, a couple of minutes walk away from Kyobashi Station. The bespoke shoes samples are impressive packs a unique punch.
We decided to drop in and shared a meaningful conversation with Takano San and Chiemi San, talking about shoes and what not. Takano San used to learn shoe making from Seiki Nobuyoshi, one of the few renowned Japanese shoe maker still alive today. Seiki San, aged 83 this year, has since retired from shoe making. It seems like the bastion of shoe making culture and tradition has already been unknowingly passed on to Takano San and the other younger shoe makers whom we believe will still be relentless in the pursuit of excellence and perfection
Social media can be draining but I’ve realised I’m not doing this for likes or follows, even though those are cool and if you love my content and support me I appreciate you! (whether if we met in person or not) Especially during my random oversharing spams or meme overloads. I’m doing this to build a brand, to tell my story, to share what I love, to show what I do. Our generation really are like webslingers with the immense power of the internet in our hands. Now excuse my extra cheesiness but with super power comes a lot of responsibility 😂😂😂 But for real, it’s very hard to be disciplined and not waste time here. It’s very hard to post stuff you wanted to post on time. It’s very hard to get organised (esp with my ADHD). It’s very hard to separate your own identity with your online persona. But just because it’s hard don’t mean it can’t be done. And just because I’m not posting 💣💣💣 pics all the time don’t mean I’m not living my life to the fullest 💯💯💯
Pleasure working with you @dreamnidea and can’t wait to create more with you! Still can’t believe you deleted like half the pics we took that day but you taught me sometimes less is more and sometimes maybe we need to do something a little uncomfortable to push ourselves to greater heights.

P.S. I made those sneakers at @artandsoleacademy which are inspired by @pharrell ‘s @adidas human race silhouette and @henderscheme contemporary take on traditional craftsmanship! Just a teaser, more pics to come!
