@Kash__ off-topic, but you got a ballpark figure how much these WK babies cost?

Funny you should ask about White Kloud. I just did a custom fitting for White Kloud boots the other day. I'm not planning on getting any, but Mr. White Kloud (Goto-san) was at Mushmans (the White Kloud shop is just a block away from Mushmans, and both are near Minami-Koshigaya St.) for a special event, and was doing custom fittings for his Oxfords (see link below).

All I can say is, these boots are the real deal. It don't get any better. Plus, Goto-san comes to shoe crafting out of reflexology and is 100% about getting you the perfect fit first and foremost. BUT. Its a 2 year wait for his boots. He has an associate who does some of the work on the Oxfords and they can be had a little sooner though.

I believe the cognac boots you posted above are the Mushmans model. They are $1700 w/o tax. (those from outside Japan would not be required to pay tax of course).

Here are another pair at $1,600 (not sure if this includes tax or not on this pair, Japanese retailers are required to list sales tax so it probably does)

If you have any q's about WK, I can definitely help.

I'm planning to do an interview with Goto-san. I'll post it over at Denimbro.

Let me know if you have any Q's for him.

Probably would be good to start a WK p0rn thread here too.

By the way, here's a quick shot of my MOTO long chukkas in natural chromexcel after a few months of wear. I'm really enjoying them! I have these in both black and natural, and I think they (both) are my favorite MOTO's so far. So comfortable, versatile, and pleasant on the eyes. Well done, MOTO!

Those are incredible. I wish they had a US stockist. We need to convince Self Edge or BiG to carry MOTO, or maybe Context would be a good fit.

By the way, I've only treated these with a bit of Venetian Shoe Cream, a horsehair brush, and a soft cloth.

Looking great Kram. Really like those.

By the way, check out the just released edition (volume 13) of Clutch Magazine for a very interesting feature on the founder of MOTO.

Haven't heard anything more. You should be able to purchase through Rakuten, no?
