You know what...Technique, and creating the overall appearance of a shoe exhibiting that WOW factor (which wouldn't work for my style anyways) Murata is probably Top Dog. Not far off from that technique mastery lies Kiyo Uda. IMO, based on his technique, finishing, English Classic styles (which admittedly is my preference), there is not a finer Japanese Bespoke shoemaker out there. I am confident these shoes will come out amazing.Stay tuned...there is a lot more original work going into them - should be in my hands in late November!
Yohei Fukuda does MTO as well as RTW, and is based in Tokyo. I've only tried his RTW but they are hands down my favorite shoes to wear.Dear experts, I've recently moved to Tokyo for business and very interested to get my first pair of decent Japanese shoe.
Unfortunately, I'm still a junior exec and cannot afford a bespoke service (definitely sometime in the future!) but don't want to miss this opportunity. I'm currently looking at the more affordable MTM options. I have around 1/2 year in Japan.
I've browsed through the first page but noticed most of the bespoke makers bar a few don't show MTM options.
Would appreciate if someone could recommend a maker around Tokyo but I'm more than willing to travel elsewhere! Thank you!
