For those of you out there in a similar situation to me (big ass feet living in Japan) you may be wondering where you might find shoes that will fit you. If you are lucky enough to live around the Tokyo region, there are a few options. First up there is ‘Kutsu no Hikari’ – This is where I have done all of my show shopping, men’s only. They have three shops, I have listed one below. Check out their website for more details.
Kutsuno Hikari (Shinjuku)
5-11-30 Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku
In my opinion, compared to shoe prices in New Zealand, Kutsuno Hikari is relatively cheap. Expect to pay around 13,000 yen a pair. Sizes range up to 35cm, and they have all kinds of shoes. I shop at the Shinjuku branch. The top floor has business and walking shoes and the bottom floor covers skateboard and sport shoes. Large selection of international brand name shoes.
Kutsuno Hikari only has a selection of men’s shoes, for you large footed women you will need to look elsewhere. I have heard of another shop called ‘Ten’ and after a little bit of surfing came up with this.
