KAZUO CRAFT is a hand-made bespoke shoe label founded in 2014 in London by the Taiwanese shoemaker EJ So. The brand was named in honour of his teacher, the master shoemaker Kazuo Hanada, who followed the traditional Japanese art of shoemaking. From making threads and cooking wax, to hand sewing unique soles, So developed a respect for shoemaking as an art which insists quality at every step of the process.
KAZUO CRAFT, now based in Taipei, Taiwan, gives the customer complete reign over the design, colour and fabrics used, to deliver a new concept encapsulated within a traditional product. Paying due homage to an ancient craft and simultaneously pushing the boundaries. A modern made-to-order shoes service, crafting conceptual, innovative artworks.
