Cool Shoes, Paraphernalia & Desiderata - Part II - Page 728

Yes that's what i thought, i fit some uk 10.5 eg CJ some JL but usually EG 11 and never tried GG as yet but thinking they'll be 1/2 size too small unless someone knows this shoe fitting for a fact...... Thanks for your input !

It's not that wide at all. Measurements reads like more girth than actual width.
G width stamped by SC. I do not trust the measurements they posted.

For Japanese residents jalan sriwijaya

Possibly the best value mid range shoes available in Japan. Less than 30,000 yen for shoes and just over for boots, Goodyear welted, leathers from France and Belgium. The shoes are made in Indonesia, and I think because Indonesia is a developing country they get a break on import duties, also they don't sell the shoes in Indonesia so they don't pay import duties on the leather. They are imported by a company called GMT. I think GMT commisioned the brand from the Indonesian company which I think is called Fortuna shoes. I also believe they make shoes for some of the mid range brands in Japan such as Beams and United Arrows.

I bought a pair of double monks yesterday, very nice for the price.

This pic doesn't do them justice. The camera angle distorts the length, they are not as pointy as this in real life but I thing Japanese guys love their shoes to be pointy

Cool, unfortunately for Japan residents, if they don't come directly from a developing country then there is a massive import duty.

I learned recently that the duty on leather shoes is related to the fact that many workers in this industry are part of a traditional underclass much like the dalit/untouchables in India and the law is meant to protect their traditional industries.

When I used to live in Japan i got some pairs of Jalan Sriwijaya, definitely recommend it from a value of money perspective altough i prefer a lot of other brands to it from a pure design and quality perspective.

Design possibly, although I like their designs, but I think you going to be paying upwards of double for better quality.

Trading Post makes pretty nice shoes, prices usually around 30-40 000 yen. Of course you can get higher priced models too!

I haven´t actually bought them, but they have lots of nice-looking shoes! I do visit their store often though. Best shoe-store in Fukuoka!
