Nutcracker, Thanks for posting the link to the Isetan clearance sale a few weeks back. I managed to get there on the Sunday evening -- day 5 of the sale. It was still pretty crowded at that time, though the sales guy told me they had triple the number of customers on Wednesday. I was a bit surprised, Wednesday being a work day and Japan being a country where it's difficult to get away from the office, but he told me lots of guys took the day off work while others drop by when they can during the day and get their shoes shipped to their home address so they don't have to appear at work with shopping bags. Well, so maybe it's not so hard to get out of the office if you really have to. Anyway, there still seemed to be a decent selection of shoes there on the Sunday, at least in my size -- I'm a 9D in Allen Edmonds -- though, as has been mentioned here, even at clearance prices, the shoes weren't cheap. But I did manage to find some blue suede Crockett & Jones boots for ¥35,000. It's a Galway model. While I was in the store debating whether to get them, I tried looking these boots up online but couldn't find anything on them. Finally I decided I probably couldn't go wrong paying that much for C&J and decided to get them. The salesman recommended I try an 8.5 but there weren't any available so he brought back an 8 instead and they seemed to fit fine. Nice looking boots, I thought. I took them for a walk the next day and they were quite comfortable. Here they are. If anyone knows anything about the model, I'd love to hear from you. I assume it must be some made-for-Japan model.
