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.
As much as we would have liked to have made our shoes in Australia, It is not possible to make Goodyear welted footwear in a country that no longer has an industry to support the technical and material requirements of welted shoemaking.
Fugashin Shoemakers is a family-run business with workshops in Tokyo and Ho Chi Minh. Their passion and expertise is evident in the shoes they produce and we're proud to bring this level of craftsmanship to our Australian customers.
