I'm planning a trip to Tokyo and would like to hit some of these stores you gents are talking about; also the Meermin store there. But last time I was there, the shoe store I visited only had sizes up to about EU 42/US 9. Any idea whether these shops carry larger sizes, up to EU 44/45?
I´m a 44.5. Wear a 10.5 E in AE, 10.5 E UK in C&J, They don´t have my size at Trading Post in Fukuoka. They have my size in Alden (10D) at big department stores. Not sure if that helps!
That being said,TP has up to 10 in AE, and should have the equivalent in other brands. They do tell me that they can order bigger sizes for me, and I´m guessing those would be from the stores in Osaka/Tokyo/Nagoya, so you might be in luck
