〈From this store, from this person〉


We have been holding our domestic trunk show at the World Footwear Gallery store in Jingumae for the past 5 years. This store is a pioneer speciality shop for shoes in Japan and its staff have a lot of knowledge about shoes. Therefore many shoe lovers are drawn to it. This customer joined our trunk show there from the first year on and has ordered shoes from us. He was not dissatisfied with ready-to-wear shoes but he liked the fitting of our house last so much that he decided to order from us. This is his 4th pair of shoes form us, a 3-eyelet split toe derby. His choice of gray color leather gives them a sophisticated impression.

He is a long-time regular customer of World Footwear Gallery and one of the staff members there introduced him to us. Of course he likes shoes, but it seems he rather enjoys having a conversation with this staff member and likes choosing his shoes while discussing things with him. It was impressive to us how he conversed happily with the staff member about the style and material of his order at the trunk show. And the orders he makes in the end are always interesting and we can feel and enjoy his sense of fun.

When you change your thinking from "buying shoes" to "choosing/making shoes with this person at this store", there will be a conversation and exchange of ideas, and you can enjoy a more enriching shoe life. That is what we were taught again from this customer.
