My good friend Rajo Laurel launched his shoe collection the other day, citing inspiration and influence from Japan. This made me curious since I’ve always been fascinated with the place, and I also knew that one could trust Rajo to come out with something well made, presentable and at the same time unique and with a good amount of quirk and twist. These are a number of pieces that I really liked (especially the Toshi, refer to photos above and below) I expect to acquire a few more pairs from this range, as a collaboration like this doesn’t come everyday.
One other great thing about every pair is that a small shoehorn is included, as well as a fabric cover. I believe that these small, considerate and detailed attention helps this line standout and give one the sense that each shoe will last a while when taken care of properly.
Unbelievable value, most shoes are in the 1200-1500 bracket! Great selection, congratulations Rajo!
