Daisuke Yamashita has a mission. He has travelled the world to meet as many artisans as possible, and documented his footweary escapades since 2002, well before the Internet exploded with menswear and style sites. DYshoes is in Japanese only, but the photos are universal and Google’s translation site has learned much. It will likely grow into Skynet one of these days. What’s truly troubling, though, is how prices for artisanal goods in Europe have risen in one short decade. Yamashita-san proves this in many interesting texts.
