This is just an excellent thread. My commendations, Nutcracker. I thought my next pair was going to be some St. Crispins, but this whole Japanese thread has changed my mind. I don't know when they'll be available in the US, but my next high end pair will definitely be some Japanese shoes.

I know people on SF have a strong affinity towards sleek shoes with sleek leather, last, and sole. But this pair is not too busy at all.

Rough grained leather, busy pattern, heavy sole work well with each other. In fact, the best way to improve this pair is to do a full norvegese instead of its current hand sewn welted construction.

They are Hidetaka Fukaya's RTW collection, btw. Blake constructed.

As far as I know, Spigola is the only maker who ever ventured out to do shows in the US. I actually asked him a while ago if he is planning to return to the states. He said he would like to, but unfortunately not anytime soon.

Hidetaka Fukaya RTW shoes cost ¥89,000~ yen ($895 or so). I believe they are all blake constructed and made in Italy.

oh...B width extremely hard to come by in Europe. I must be priviledged to have average width fitting - I know some Forum members spend north of $6K for a pair of bespoke...6K allows me to have 10 pairs.
