Where are the shoes? I should have taken more pictures but when I visit Japan my consumerism is on full impulse power and I’m especially jealous of all the cool shoes available to Japanese men.
I didn’t take nearly enough pictures to show the variety but here’s a few casual ones.
Here’s a few less casual but not quite dressy. These are from a few years ago and sadly these are not the most interesting once in this style.
Unfortunately for me I’m a U.S. 10-11 (depending on the brand) or a Europe 44 which is a 29cm shoe in Japan. Most Japanese shoes only go to 27cm or 28cm max but once in a while I get lucky. For example Dragon Beard goes to size 44 on some shoes. If you’re an American size 9 or smaller and you like this kind of stuff be sure to check out Japanese shoes next time you’re in Japan. Good places to look. 109 Men’s in Shibuya, Marui Men’s (0101) in Shinjuku, Hankyu Men’s in Yurakucho/Ginza are 3 places that come to mind.
