Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 1374

The Chukka and chelsea boots are 950 euro (excluding VAT). So I am guessing maybe little bit less expensive than the USA (assuming you don't pay the tax) I still have to pay for shipping once it is ready (usually 50$)

Some amazing shoes. I am not really into boot considering where I live but I had to order this Chukka, and I see in my future one of his Decon chelsea in parinated suede. (Sorry I can figure how to post all the photos I'm single post)

 

   good choice   that's a clean design

Cross post from the Japanese shoe thread: Here's a bunch of pictures from Yohei Fukuda's showroom and workshop as well as from the production of and end result of a pair I've ordered. Much more pics and info in a buyer's guide on my blog, but can't put it all here.

 

First from the showroom, located on the second floor in the district Shibya in the central parts of Tokyo:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Workshop, two floors up from the showroom:

Measurement process. I've ordered his Master Fitting offering, which is semi bespoke/MTM (he modifies his standard lasts a bit to fit the customers feet, although for me it was quite a lot of modifications needed). First try on pair in size UK10, good in length but way too snug for me:

 

 

 

Measuring the height in various places:

 

 

 

Gathering info about the order:

 

 

 

 

Some pics taken by Yohei during the making process:

 

 

 

 

 

And the final pair:

Please check the two alphabetical letters.

I've read all this before. Some is correct and some not. After dealing with a few thousand 1930's thru 1980's Florsheim shoes you see the inconsistencies. On a side note, Classic Shoes for Men is NOT a good source for true vintage shoe manufacturing data. Most of it is 100% made up.

Awesome mate

I love the Maftei wholecut, its price is very good too, giving they are bespoke and from Viena.

 

Aside that, the Fukudas are my favourite pair by far. I would only order shoes from him if I had the money.

 

You have a very consistent collection, looking forward to see what's coming next.
