Yoshiharu Hasegawa

Based in Tokyo

Yoshiharu Hasegawa had an interest in fashion and was originally inspired by the late London-based shoe designer, John Moore. He learned the craft at Cordwainers College in London and studied with Daita Kimura, who was an apprentice of John Moore. While studying with Kimura, he got to know many famous and skilled shoemakers who further inspired him.

Yoshiharu Hasegawa's shoes are made in Japan with great attention to detail, and are generally traditional in shape with rounded toes while retaining an overall sleek silhouette. They also incorporate unique, edgy details and are made from the finest calf leathers.
