Hopefully when the Armoury opens its Tribeca outpost, Koji's shoes would be available in the states again. nod[1].gif

In other words I have to go to Japan. Gotcha what about Imai Hiroki? How one order shoes from this shoemaker?

I think Imai-san used to take orders online, but not anymore. Ital Style (located mainly in the Kansai area) takes MTO orders for him year round. There are also occasional trunk shows here and there (most recently at Osaka`s Hankyu).

Thanks!

Spinglemove and Onitsuka Tiger comes to mind...

http://www.onitsukatiger.com/ja-jp/

Mizuno, Asics, Yonex are some bigger companies, but I`m not sure if they still make shoes in Japan

Not sure Spinglemove or Onitsuka Tiger make actual running shoes, more fashion sneakers.

Hi all,
I am not a Japanese shoe guy, though I was just flipping through and love the look of many of them. I have a question. I picked up a sport coat recently at a vintage place by Issey Miyake. It has a hand written label and I do not speak or read japanese. I have been wondering what it says under "quality". I have been trying to find a translation or something similar to no avail. I though that someone here might be able to help.



Sorry to butt into the thread but I just had to give it a shot. Thanks guys!
