I agree with you, at least certainly not NYC/London/HK/Paris/Shanghai/Singapore
Once you go black, ...
Unless you belong to #menswear.
You noticed how Crockett & Jones are sold in almost every store I listed? I honestly think the majority of C&J shoes made are shipped to Japan....
Yeah, while definitely not all Mitsukoshis are nice, the Nihonbashi one may be the Saks of Japan. The facade kinda looks similar too
Nutcracker, thanks for the guide where to get good shoes in Japan; will be heading there and really appreciate it.
Nutcrackers contribution on the shoe scene in Japan has been immense; I vote that he be given 'dubiously honoured' status in this forum
Great shoe shopping guides; also guys please spoiler them takes up the whole page when repeatedly quoted
Agree - NC....you have defined my 3 days itinary for Toyko....will treat you to a glass wine/beer if we meet up.
Thanks for enjoying them!! Don't you need something like 10,000 posts to get that title? and yeah, in fact I don't think there is even a Japanese equivalent to a shoe shopping guide by store...store websites don't list them either.
Sounds great. You're planning to visit with your lady perhaps? Not sure if she'll like your itinerary...... btw I'm not done....several more shopping areas to cover this weekend
When it comes to HK; SGP and Bangkok, the missus is staying put - she'll be compensated with some weekend-spa package ;-) ...
Currently working on a deal to justify a week travel request to HK...this should allow me enough time to pop over to Tokyo for the weekend...
I presume all these larger stores are open on a Sunday?
The whole of Northampton should be renamed Nori-hampton
Weekend spa at a nice hotel in HK sounds like a reasonable tradeoff for your absence
Yes, larger stores are all open on Sundays.
only one complain, price! there goes the reason why I would not buy any foreign made shoe while I am in Tokyo, yen got to sink even further to make it worthwhile...
Yeah, but it also depends on what brand.
An average Carmina shoes in Tokyo are priced around ¥60000 (¥63000 with 5%VAT). That is equivalent to $586 USD, not too far away.
It really is. Especially when a few outworkers and bespoke shops are already dominated by Japanese workers.
