The Best Brands in the Boot World Made in Japan

And there? As I explained in the first part of the series, I am putting together an almanac for the fans of boots. Is not a complete list… I know there are other good brands of boots men’s. I am gathering that I more cool; whether it be for aesthetics, for historic importance, or quality.

The Best Brands in the Boot World Made in Japan

In the first part I highlighted the best boots made in the United States, the largest reference work boots. Now, here comes Japan, a country full of products made with techniques of breath-taking.

The visual of the boots the japanese have a very strong connection with the american style, and outraos models traditional, such as the brogue of the british. The political economies and development the japanese have created space for the reproduction of the classics, with attention obsessive to detail, huge emphasis on the format and on manual labor.

While the factories in England and in the world disappear, new people still appear in Japan, investing in proposals manuals and bespoke product. Japanese young people are apprentices in factories and traditional in the whole world.

If they are the ones who invest more to keep the traditions alive, there are also those who present the news with boldness in the application of the identity of the japanese. It is that mixture of tradition and innovation that is part of everything there.

Now if the league in the best brands in the boot of Japan. If you have any questions or need some strength in the time of the purchase is just leave a comment!

·         Bike

Leather Arts & Crafts MOTO is a group in Aoyama that the sculptor Hideo Motoike began in 1971.

The Bike works the leather in the shape of footwear and accessories, and the aesthetics of the products is what attracts me. Notice the combination of proportions and shapes, and how the leather is cut and treated. By the boots, is not so apparent, but by the shoes that you have on the site, you can see that the aesthetic has a je ne sais quoi difficult to explain.

The main feature is the leather, painting and manual finishing of the leather. The hand painting is uneven, and leaves the base of the leather discolored with time to reveal a mix of the original tone with the paint surface.

My line favorite of this brand is the MOTOR, with shoes inspired by the garage of the work and the memories accumulated during the motorcycle trips of the founder.

Where to Buy: On the website itself. Without many options for larger sizes. Some products are made to order for the sake of finishing the manual and it is not possible to give up or change the purchase.

·         White Kloud

The boots men’s White Kloud are gross and a Wesco and refined as a Edward Green. Blend the best of both worlds through the technique impeccable bootmaker Show Goto.

These boots are hand-made and custom (actually bespoke). Exaggerated, meets perfectly the market of the country, fascinated with between-soles dual/triple, soles thick, the edges polished and the mix of buildings.

Each boot is individually made to the owner, since the form of wood, up to the choice of the final details. The construction is robust, with a mixture of construction palmilhada and stitchdown, but the result is a polished, almost delicate, as if it were a stylish footwear social, with the leather beautiful.

Where to Buy: The boots are tailor-made. Anyone who wants to buy need to visit the workshop to be measured and choose the materials. It is the policy to ensure a put on perfect.

  • Clinch

Mark Clinch was founded in Tokyo in 2011, by Minoru Matsuura.

In 2008, the shoemaker experienced opened the Brass, a workshop for restoration. After a few years customizing boots he developed their own ways and opened the doors for orders. Thus was born the Clinch, which today also has some products ready for delivery.

The boots of the Leg are hand-made (hand lasted and hand welted), and have styles and silhouettes vintage, pulling over to the side more “dressy”, which I see being used with a suit by some powerful in the years 30. Even the Engineer Boot and other random patterns has more format refined, especially in the nozzle, which has a beautiful proportion rounded/flattened.

Have some boots ready for delivery but the focus is still the option of boots made to measure. As well as the White Kloud, the process begins with the measurement of the foot that is used to carve out a form of wood. The boot is molded in the back of this form and the mold is adjusted to accommodate the foot of the client, taking into consideration the width of the pipe, the length of the pipe, where you will start your fingers, where is the arch, the heel, etc.

Where to Buy: Direct from website, Rakuten Japan, and so on Pancho & Lefty, shop Swedish that has some special models.

·         Chausser

This is a brand that balances the focus to craft and an aesthetic refinement. The Chausser caught my attention with the boots and shoes made in shell cordovan, including in natural color.

The aesthetics of the boots is a bit more exaggerated than average, with the middle as well and narrow the tip slightly bulbous, beak facing up. Not enough to be so extreme, but stands out in the middle of this list of boots with aesthetic heavy.

Quite like these two boots in shell cordovan natural, that with time turns into a leather tan. They are perfect for fans of the aging of the leather and of the concept of wabi-sabi.

·         Rolling Dub Trio

I don’t know much about the Rolling Dub Trio, only makes boots great – very well made, and the styles and design usually have little details and an extra quality that makes them unique without being exotic too.

The shoe high tops/boot low pipe model Coupen is the classic of the RDT. I think some people will find the photos of this boot through desajeitadsa, with nozzle in the high and sole tripo, but it gets pretty cool in the foot, and has a charming “old fashioned” that I short enough.

Another boot with a classic look old school is the Vincent, inspired by the boots and old shoes painted by Van Gogh, with a visual differential that I have not seen in any other manufacturer. The Sower is one of the best boots ceecs that I saw, with a footprint in western and leather super thick.

Rolling Dub Trio accepts requests in order but the numbering are limited. The line ready for sale floats between classical visual “old fashioned” and some projects as well daring and strange, with colors and leathers wacky, made in limited quantities.

Where to Buy: Order from japanese shops through a proxy, such as the Mirror Ball, the Masuya or Mushmans. Only has small sizes, up to the 9/9.5 US.

·         Foot the Coacher

Foot the Coacher is a brand of the group Gallery of Authentic, designer Toshinosuke Takegahara, who as a young man he was an apprentice and then worked in Northampton, a region that manufactures the shoes more noble of England.

The quality is very good, similar to the shoes English, as the creator of the brand is an ex-Trickers. The leather is Horween and the style of the shoes is not as classic, has more of a footprint rudeboy/rocker, with some models as well also bold.

The brand has a look as well vintage for the styles of shoes and boots british. It may not appear much on the boots that I have selected, taking two of them which are more formal, but the shoes remind me of very shoes of the victorian era. The shoes of today are far more simple than that time, many details and ornaments were abandoned, and the Foot the Coacher brings them back.

Where to Buy: Rakuten Jp through a proxy. Refine the search by the model of the boot, using the official site as reference.

·         John Lofgren

John Lofgren is a californian who lives a long time in Japan, and obviously the creative vision behind the John Lofgren Co. The vision of the brand began when he ventured for the first time for thrift store in the early 1980s and went crazy with the style and quality of boots old.

The brand incorporates the substance with tradition, and pride of workmanship excellent, values that are timeless that are reflected in the top quality products. The boots have a footprint as well retro, inspired by the clothing of the late NINETEENTH century until the middle of the TWENTIETH century, and are all made in Japan.

The products have a construction Goodyear Welted, and has the nice detail of the points that pass through the middle of the half Vibram sole, fastening the rubber to the first layer of the sole leather. This detail is laborious is much found in boots vintage, as well as the heel woodsman made with several layers of leather and sanded perfectly.

There are several brands that pay homage to that era idealized in the United States there between the 30’s and 50’s, with designs american classics, and the John Lofgren is among the best of them. The two boots below, an Engineer to Boot , and another style lace to toe, has a wonderful combination of leather, sole and heel, with detail welt “storm welt” that does not appear very these reproductions, vintage.

·         Attractions

Eu só descobri as botas da Attraction depois de ter voltado do Japão. Queria muito ter visitado a loja em Harajuku!

This brand works primarily with clothes that were part of the youth culture over the years. They work great with the aesthetic of the 50’s but the products are not necessarily replicas. Many of them are modern interpretations with a sensitivity to vintage.

It does not have its own production and so I thought I’d leave off the list, but the Engineer Boots of the Attractions are of the most beautiful I’ve ever vi.

·         Real McCoys / Buco

A The Real McCoys é especializada em reproduções extremamente detalhadas. A marca é dividida em grupos com identidades distintas, além de deter os direitos de marcas antigas que reviveram.

The Real McCoys is influenced by articles military of the 1940s and 1950s. The line Joe McCoys seeks inspiration in sportswear american denim and workwear. Already the Double Diamond, is a broadcast dedicated to playing pieces workwear from the turn of the century.

Finally, The Real McCoys also have the license from Buco, a legendary brand of clothing and accessories for motorcyclists that had closed the doors and was resurrected by the japanese.

The boots, like all other products of this brand, has standards of quality and detail of the absurd. I’m not talking about military or workwear superficial. The production many times account with the own manufacture of cotton, and plays buttons and zippers original.

The highlight of the boots begins with the Field Boot N1, playback of a boot of the second world war. The Buco has Engineer Boots amazing, including one made of horse leather. The Monkey Boot, a boot style lace-to-toe, and the Bear’s Head, a boot worker classic complete everything you need in terms of boots men’s.
