    Thanks a lot for sharing this! Would you happen to know if Yoheis RTW will eventually come to the US? And if so, which retailer has close ties with him?

    Thank you!

    No thanks! The retailer who decides to stock $2k+ RTW shoes in full size runs in this retail environment needs to get a full brain scan (or an excellent bankruptcy lawyer)

    Seriously. Noticed Fukuda RTW on an unnamed site, and hightailed outta there just about as fast as I could.

    I mean, the shoes are amazing but, at that price, it is better as a MTO product. What retailer can immobilize that much capital in an inventory of niche Japanese high-end shoes?

    The new Swedish based webshop The Sabot sell Yohei Fukuda's RTW, and ship worldwide. They now take pre-orders, from september they will have a small stock as well. I know one other retailer is planned, apart from himself selling them in Japan.

    One and a half years later....and the trial shoes have arrived! Every detail in the final version has been recreated. Incredible work by Eiji Murata of Main D`Or. To be worn for a month or two...

    [​IMG] Oops, photos on Flickr but not downloading....any instructions appreciated.
