For those who haven't visited, the basement floor of the Isetan mall is unlike any men's shoe section I've ever seen. Shoe porn dream. Anyhow, the yen is destroying the dollar right now, so I took the opportunity to pick up a cost conscious pair of Union Imperial Japanese made Chukkas with dainite soles. I was struck by their sleek appearance and thin sole despite the dainite, and after a brief break-in period, they are among my favorite shoes. For ~$450USD, I am quite pleased. I had never heard of this brand before, and I'm curious whether other folks have had good experiences with Union Imperial or other Japanese made shoes?
