Those prices are outrageous!

For the loafer in shell, it would be about USD 2350, EUR 1750, GBP 1475.

Are there actual buyers for these shoes/luxury goods in Japan? I don't understand, Japan has been in a rut for the past 10 years. 1/2 of the students coming out of universities are not getting a job. Companies are not hiring and many people had been let go. Revisiting Economics 101, consumer spending is a key piece of spending to sustain an economy. Perhaps there is a latent demand of these goods, am I missing something?

I used to travel there a lot and ask myself the same question. I suspect there are still deep pockets in Japan.
