To all sneaker lovers there in the States:
I have already posted earlier that the most-wanted sneakers in the States are NOT POPULAR here in Japan.
I have purchased many of them like: Foam Galaxy, Corks, Nerfs, Weathermans, AJ Breds/Concords, etc, etc....ALL UNCONTESTED!!!
NIKES ARE NOT POPULAR IN JAPAN!!!
Japanese customers go crazy on New Balance and Asics Tiger.
I am stationed at a US military facility here in Tokyo district. My buddies and I regularly go to this store in Shinjuku to buy new releases with no worries of running out of stock. Finally, thanks to Sneakernews for publishing where the store is located at. Now I recall the exact address and here is the store address, tel. & website:
FOOTGEAR SHOP A Japan, Tokyo, Taito, Ueno, ４−８−１５+81 3-3833-9009 · yamaotoko.jp
To any point within Tokyo Area, use JR-EAST Line (train looping Metro-Tokyo). Here are further details:
Take the GREEN LINE or the BLUE LINE, and get off at Okachimachi Station (after Akihabara District). Then it's a short walk to the sneaker shop. For ride details (fares, etc) use link below:
Should you have friends or relatives here in Japan, forward this information so they won't get lost & be guided accordingly.
HAPPY SHOPPING FELLOW SNEAKERLOVERS. WE'LL SEE YOU ALL THERE IN THE SHOP!!!
PS: I am not a reseller, just a pure collector who wears them. Avoid fattening the wallets of these resellers. If you have friends or relatives in Japan, your dream of getting the sickest or rarest sneakers in the US is fulfilled here in Japan.
