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!

The Tradingpost in Ginza is staffed by assholes, and considering they are within walking distance of Washington and a couple of other high end shoe stores I don't know how they do any business.

I have no idea about the quality of their own brand of shoes, I won't go into the joint again.

Not quite Andover shop bad. It was bad enough however that I was bumped out of my general apathy enough to send a polite email to their corporate HQ detailing the treatment I received. Didn't get a response.

Couldn't agree more. I thought the trading post guys treated me like shit because I was a foreigner, but my Japanese wife also hates them. I still go in (visited today) but will never buy from them.

Maybe I've been lucky because, on the couple of occasions I've visited, the staff have been very nice and helpful.

I did go one other time when it was crowded and I loitered around without being served, but the other two times the staff were very gracious and helpful.

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

 

Very very interesting. Indonesia is so close to home (i'm from Singapore) and i never heard of this brand until today. I visited their website and it seems they even use hand welting. Leathers from french tanneries also seems like good news.

 

This actually reminds me of D C Lewis (a upper end shoe made in developing countries). Does anyone knows how they compare?

Relisted because the buyer failed to pay.

I would be surprised if they use hand welting, the website is hard to decipher, but if it is hand welting then it is even better value.
