Patina Party! @ World Footwear Gallery Ginza this weekend 5/5~5/6

Fujisawa Nobuaki, Master Colorist from Columbus, the largest shoe care manufacture in Japan, will be @ WFG store in Ginza to take patina/coloring orders. Personal shoes and leather accessories could be brought in for color makeovers. He is also taking orders for MTO patinated shoes...handmade shoes colored to your liking.

Shoes made in Laos are priced at ¥30,000 ($300) range, and are goodyear welted. They employ several Japanese veteran shoemakers to supervise the Laos factories.

Some of their better efforts...Sample Shoes; handsewn welted


Shaped like JLP`s Jermyn II



Berlutti-esque



Buckle and Elastic



Grey base plus black patina


Handpainting




Ingenuity Shoes are sold in Japan, but will be available in China and Singapore too (may have already started)

taken from Mr.Yamashita`s site

well, I hope they start their own brand someday, what a shame

I think they might be the manufacturer for one of our forum member founded Internet only shoe line.

If my memory serves me correct, the owner did receive some bespoke shoemaking training. And the company did invite Eric Cook to consult on their factory shoe manufacturing.

They are at 神岡,台中 and do have a Facebook fan page and a blog that's rarely updated.

well, I'm under the impression that is still an OEM job, no?

Yes, their shop keeper trained under Eric Cook. They also invite some `Norwegian` shoemakers twice a year or so for consultation. Then they have a number of Japanese supervising the factory on location at Laos.

They made their name as an OEM factory, and now they have their own house brand in Japan (and possibly in China and Singapore).

I've got several inquiries about the Miyagi Kogyo RTW shoes, so I scanned this image from a recent MEN'S EX.
The last is a bit banana shaped (inside straight, outside curved), but still manages to be quite sleek (with a compact almond toe and an extra tightened waist). Aka the 'Comfort Last', inspired by American comfort lasts, the arch is tightly supported, I say similar to Modified Last. Extra details, such as the rolled waist and flush welt/edge, make these quite a looker in person.

This particular model uses Shinki Hikaku's Oiled Cordovan. Priced in line with Alden, and a bit below Carmina's Shell oxfords, around $650 USD or so.

Miyagi Kogyo RTW, model 'YOUKIHI'
Oiled Cordovan by Shinki HIkaku
Horse / Goat leather interior
Double Leather Sole
¥65,100 yen ($657 USD) incl. tax

That's my immediate thought but they are well trained.

The other day, I was talking with Mr. Hiroshi Yoneda,

designer of The Warmth Crafts-Manufacturer.

Shinki-Hikaku cordovan have been produced over the time and effort,

difficulty of obtaining high-quality material,his impassioned appeal.

Beautiful and clear luster,smooth but rugged. Cordovan is truly "Diamond of leather".
