Heelless shoes

heelless shoes a la noritaka tatehana

My pair of heelless leather shoes a la Noritaka Tatehana. I had these shoes made during my vacation in the Philippines last month. I’m 7 inches taller with these babies on. People ask me all the time how I walk in them. They look heavy and difficult to walk in but they’re neither. I just love these shoes! Guess how much I paid to have these made. US $60. If you have any questions just leave it in the comments and I’ll answer them.
