Unfortunately being a uk size12 there arenít much selection in the sale section. Aiming to get the barkers Winsford! 38 pounds from free shipping sigh
Oh is it? I thought usually the extreme sizes will be the one in the sale section?

Perhaps I should have mentioned that on top of being size12, I require G fit shoes due to wide feet haha. May just get a belt to hit the 199gbp requirement

Went to see in person over the weekend. The lasts and designs don't really look good in person. The leather seems similar to those from Vietnam makers. Any idea where they source their leather from?
This is not a jap brand. Indonesian but their biggest market is probably Japan hence all the materials in Japanese.

Shoes are handwelted despite the goodyear welted sole markings.

Last time i checked big portion of uppers are from Du Puy.

Can't speak much about the quality much but finishing could definitely be better.

Not sure any of you been to this shop at Taka... the shoes design looks decent but tried two of them didnít like the feel.... this brand is confusing with combined of Japan and Indonesia origin .,.? So is japan or Indonesia ??? The price is reasonable for the GYW shoes with the design.





I just purchase one pair from them and their shoe tree for $400. Seems quite decent enough for me. Got a pair of dust bag for free! Compared to departmental stores, think this is good. I like the arch support.

Jalan sriwijaya's owner is japanese but the shop is from indo. Very good price for the quality of shoes. Do ask the manager for recommendation. He is the one with the moustache

Didn't realise the owner was japanese. Do you know if just the brand or the factory too?

Anyone bought saphir stuff from taobao before. Are they legit?

And also i kinda overapplied leather creme on my loake 1880s. Now theres a slightly darker tone to certain parts of the shoe. Can this be corrected?

Thanks!
