Those plain toes by Hiroshi Tsubouchi costs 77K, or 770 USDYes, imported shoes usually have an up charge (due to the high import tax), but not as horrible as you think.EG Chelsea shoes cost ¥146,880 in Japan ($1432 USD) including 8% VAT. This is after the recent price hike.http://edwardgreen.jp
You`re most welcomed! Definitely not cheap, but I think they are done very tastefully!
Great news Stephan!Both of the shoes above are made with his `smart round` MARQUESS ROUND style. The chestnut one based his sample last and the chocolate one based on a client`s foot. While the sample is obviously made to look slim and smart, I really like how the `real world` one came out very classic looking.

Congrats on your new boots! ¥35K seems like a good steal! Yes, there are a slew of Japan-only C&J models and lasts, and those may very well be one.

Lovely colours indeed!They`re GYW, looks like 360 reverse welt to me. I think they are made by Miyagi Kogyo, but could be wrong.
M X Hiroshi Tsubouchi X Amazon An interesting project produced by Amazon.co.jp, bringing some of the top Japanese RTW makers and minds together to create some interesting shoes. The shoes are sold exclusively through Amazon.co.jp Hiroshi Tsubouchi Plaintoe Derbies in Shinki Cordovan (cognac, navy) in some ways a Japanese version of 990 more pics (as well as pricing) from this amazon.co.jp link from M`s Blog
