Not so cheap though, will set you back ¥31,500 yen ($315 USD)

Can you or someone here proxy? The page here doesn't seem to allow online orders.

Trading Post also has fancy shoe boxes should anyone care.

The case is not small, and probably also needs to be repackaged in a sturdier box to ship overseas.
Unfortunately I can't do that for you, but I can ask Trading Post if they can pack/ship overseas.

An interesting repair job by the folks @ Brift H Tokyo

Apparently, the cracks on the vamp were beyond repair, so a piece of leather was stitched over the cracked area. He calls this type of repair 'Charles Style'
They also did a decent job matching/finishing the leather piece to blend in with the rest....maybe a contrast with a totally different color would have been cool too.....

gentille & 79, Tokyo

Shoe repair and order salon gentille opened just last year, tucked in the small neighborhood of Fudomae. Already known as one of the few repair shops in Tokyo that can do full blown hand stitched recrafting, owner Koji Endou is also an accomplished shoemaker. With over 10 years of experience in shoemaking and repairing, he also apprenticed briefly under Anthony Delos at the Loire atelier.

Endou's bespoke line, '79 soixante-dix-neuf', is available for order at the atelier. Price starts at a generous ¥190,000 yen for full handmade bespoke shoes.



A chic storefront in a cozy neighborhood


Bespoke line '79 soixante-dix-neuf' on display



The smooth silhouette is very pleasing to the eyes. A shape inspired by Delos.




Oxfords with Norwegian welts.



More norwegian welts.


Whole Cut Oxford

Wholecut Oxford with a characteristically short nose



Whole Cut Derby in English Suede


Koji Endou bottier

A newcomer to the busy Tokyo Bespoke scene, Endou bottier is definitely worth keeping an eye on. Would like to thank Endou-san for his time!
