I have a couple of pairs of JMW in B widths. I still get some heel slippage, but still the best fitting RTW shoes I own....

A bespoke flap over briefcase made by Bellago (Kobe), with leather sourced from Spigola (to match the shoes).

Great to see a Japanese shoemaker getting some well deserved recognitions overseas

Well, it turns out that the son of a friend of my wife's is apparently an up-and-coming young Tokyo shoemaker... if he is really any good, I'll pay a visit some time over the next few weeks and take some pictures.

Nice intro B-M! If I may, here is another pair of Bonta Bespoke.

Hasegawa san (Bonta) is well known in his native Osaka, and has been prominently featured in LAST Magazine before. Too bad he doesn't travel to Tokyo for shows. I know he trained at Guild, and also spent some time in Italy under Silvano Lattanzi.





A pair of full handmade Bespoke oxfords with HAF soles (above) costs ¥163,800 ($1650 USD).
Shoemakers in Osaka seem to be price their shoes quite generously. I recall Atsuta Kutsuten also charges ¥150K or so for their full bespoke.

Here's the Yohei Fukuda Interview published on the LIVIIN Magazine (in Italian and English)

They're kinda grainy (screen capture from ipad) but still readable. Open the link for better view

Well, he is good but he works very much in streetwear styles, so probably not so interesting to readers of this thread. For those who are interested, there are some pictures here.

 

(The gallery / shop they are sold in is owned by my wife's friend, and it's a really well-curated collection of Scandanavian and Scandanavian-influenced home design stuff for those in Tokyo).

 

And now, back to normal service...

Theres always room for casual shoes/boots in our wardrobes, and they seem to be priced very generously (¥35K~¥45K) for handmade shoes. I wish him the best luck.
