Japanese Shoes: Bespoke & RTW Super Thread - Page 131

post #1951 of 2690
has anyone tried exploring Yahoo JP auctions to find some bargains?

Sole aside, the shape of these (from the top) is rather pleasing http://page19.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/x303974704?u=%3bsun_s_shoes

Edit: leather sole located http://page21.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/j263569787?u=%3bsun_s_shoes

Yes, yahoo.jp auction is an excellent source for locating bargains, both Japanese and imported shoes.

I assume those Regal shoes are some of their Italian styled shoes. Both are blake/Mackay stitched, and have Polish Binded kip for their uppers. Seems like a reasonable deal (vs. retail price).

Welcome to Styleforum!

Those are some very interesting shoes Qnai-san made! I hope Nuzzo-san doesn't mind his shoes being seen by people around the world!!

I would definitely love to visit Kobe one day to meet all the great people there!

Wow! I can only imagine, since Qnai-san is quite handsome himself! colgate.gif

The town must be an inspiration for him and so many other craftsmen who calls Kobe their home!

I've tried several of their products before. Not so much a fan of their signature high-shine regimen (base, coat, polish water), but their cleaner/conditioner, leather sole conditiner, and their edge coloring ink proved to be very useful.


Light cleaner/conditioner (clear color). Quite easy to use without fear of over stripping.


Leather sole conditioner.


Edge coloring ink, with an applicator attached to the lid. Pretty bottle


Their premium shoe cream ('Collections' series) looks promising. Apparently they contain more pigments and fewer solvents vs other brands.
