Fugashin Shoemaker

Fugashin was founded in 1989 as a specialised manufacturer of Goodyear welted footwear for the Japanese market. Fugashin Shoemaker, the brand (2014), is now a Japanese-Vietnamese joint-venture and has earned a reputation for meticulous workmanship and quality output. 

Passion in shoemaking

 In Japanese, the word 'fuga' is used to express traditional art sensitivity. To reflect the spirit of shoemaking, Fuga was combined with Shin (or passion). Fugashin Shoemakers is the perfect name for a shoemaker that prides itself on quality craftsmanship. Fugashin, like other Japanese shoemakers, brings a new level of artistry to footwear and in less than a decade, it has arguably become the best ready-to-wear shoemaker in the region. 

Fugashin Saigon

Fugashin Shoemaker has workshops in Tokyo and Ho Chi Min. At the heart of it, Fugashin is a family-run business and their clean and well-run urban workshop has benefited immensely from the expertise and experience of the Japanese market.

All technical expertise and training has been transferred from Japan. Most of the tools used are from Italy or Germany. Shoes produced by Fugashin Saigon are sold all around the world, including major Japanese department stores.
