Any have a MTO arrangement? Hiro Yanagimachi perhaps seems to have something akin to one, but prefers you to try on the shoes when you collect them. I'd be wanting to get them sent to me.

Most Japanese MTO shoes also have size restrictions. I recall Hiro-san`s MTO shoes only going up to size 28 (size 10). Not sure if he expanded his sizing option.

Clematis comes up to my mind though: he offers sub-¥200K MTO shoes for any size. Yohei Fukuda probably offers that too, but costs a bit more.

Regal: Pretty sure they go up to size 30. Regal sizes are quite generous, I can fit a 27 in some of their RTW shoes. Their standard width seems to be EE. Not going to say they are fantastic, but their more expensive collection are well made shoes.

My personal recomendation, Miyagi Kogyo MTO shoes and boots, they will definitely be able to make anything in your size. I know nutcacker has positive things to say about them as well.

There is one other last called the MD available, but it isn't shown on the English website. http://www.miyagikogyo.co.jp/ocs_md.html

There are a number of fitters around abouts,

Yeah, Miyagi Kogyo MTO indeed does offer a full spectrum of size/widths. Great base price, though upgrading materials could hike the price up significantly. Just need to find their authorised dealer (plenty in Tokyo), since they don`t sell online.

The MD last is Miyagi`s version of Modified Last. Not sure if MD stands for ModifieD, but at least MK seems quite open about being inspired by Alden smile.gif
