Khish the Work

革靴は履き物という道具でありながら芸術品でもあります。Khish the Work(キッシュザワーク)では一足一足を“作品”と考え、こだわり抜いて仕上げます。


Khish the Work

As Khish the Work, I consider each pair of shoes to be a "work of art", and I'm meticulous about finishing each pair of shoes.

I value not only the beauty of the work itself, but also the beauty of the form created by following the shape of feet.
I also imagine the memories and tastes that will deepen over time as we spend time with the shoes, as I carefully create each piece.

I became a shoemaker because I love leather shoes so much. Even after becoming a shoemaker, I still enjoy leather shoes as one of shoe lovers.
There is no end to the enjoyment of wearing, looking at, polishing, and making leather shoes. I wouldn’t be happier if I could share these joys with you.

Khish's Collection

1.Made to Order

2.Number Collection


Khish has three lines with different concepts: Made to Order / Numbers collection / Bespoke.

1.Made to Order

We will launch the Khish the Work MTO line at the 2023 exhibition and order event.
MTO is an abbreviation for Made to Order, and is a made-to-order product that is manufactured by customizing the size, material, and detail specifications according to the customer's order.
MTO has developed a shoe last that is easy to walk in and fits most people, although it does not fit each individual foot.

$1,400(tax included)〜

Construction : Hand welted and Machine stitched sole
Size : UK4.5~9.5 11 sizes

2.Numbers Collection

This is a collection of shoes that I have carefully created and realized. Please find your favorite shoes.
All items are one-of-a-kind and numbered. After being displayed at exhibitions, they will be sold as ready-made items.

Prices vary for each shoe.

Construction : Hand welted and Hand stitched sole
Contents : Leather shoes, shoe tree, shoe box, shoe bag
The Gallery Past Collections The Information on Past Exhibitions


These are fully custom-made shoes that are made from a last based on the measurements of the customer's feet to suit each individual customer.
As the name of "Bespoke" suggests, we speak each other everything from fitting to design to create the perfect pair.

Order Flow


Please make a reservation using the Bespoke reservation form. I will contact you by e-mail to discuss the schedule of measurements, etc.

2.Design consultation and foot measurements

I will take your measurements at my workshop (currently located in Tsurumi-ku, Yokohama, Japan) and discuss the design, specifications, and materials. Fill in the specifications on the order sheet and sign the contract.(¥100,000 will be charged in advance.)
I will start to make a last and temporary shoes for you.
If you live outside of Japan, there is a way to order without coming to Japan. Please contact me for details.
※Boots and loafers are requested after the second pair.

3.Tentative fitting (approx. 3 months after measurements)

You are invited to visit my workshop and try on a pair of temporary shoes made to fit your feet. After checking the fitting and modifying the last, I will start the main production.

4.Completion (about 6 months after measurement)

You are welcome to visit my workshop and receive your finished shoes. I look forward to being pleased with your shoes.
