Volume 3 of visvim’s “A Dissertation on the Beauty of Form RE: Straight Cut Apparatus” previews an upcoming release and the background behind its execution, the FOLEY-FOLK CORDOVAN. A detailed write-up touches upon brand founder Hiroki Nakamura’s reasoning and process behind the incoming made-to-measure FOLEY-FOLK CORDOVAN. Furthermore a video with a look into the Horween Leather Company’s cordovan leather production process can be seen below.

For a while now, I have had an interest in making a Cordovan sneaker.

I first met Skip from Horween Leather Company several years ago. They exhibit a passion and pride in making quality Cordovan the way they have been for many years now.

I do not want to make a product with this special material that can be considered disposable once worn down.

After developing the Hand Sewn Goodyear Welt Construction for the FOLEY-FOLK, it is now possible to replace the outsole of the sneaker.

I wanted to make a product that would allow one to feel a sense of joy from being able to wear it a long time; a product that is fitted exactly to the size of the user’s foot.

We measure the feet of the actual user.
We utilize four lasts, footbeds with varying thicknesses of 2mm, and molded outsoles of varying width to create the most optimal fit.

It takes time and effort, but to be able to make a product while sitting face to face with my customer is very satisfying.
I would like to offer this kind of product to as many customers as possible.

I ask for your patience as I prepare.

Hiroki Nakamura.
