Now, you may be saying that there are more than enough shoe blogs, but that’s just crazy talk. You can’t have too many shoes, so how can you have too many shoe blogs?

The shoes created by Javier Gasco reveal what can be achieved when a designer doesn’t have to worry about commerciality – no need to identify a target market, create a balanced and cohesive collection, or determine cost assessments. Mr Gasco doesn't design regular collections for sale; these shoes are made for his pleasure or for a rare commission. They are the product of an unbridled imagination and a masterful ability to design and make footwear.
I studied shoe design in London about a million years ago, but for various reasons never worked as a designer. Recently I decided to focus my obsession with shoes into a website that would provide information about independent shoe designers and retailers.
