Ishmael,

Do the Wakouwa Deck shoes have a high arch/ a lot of arch support?  Or are they a flatter footbed?

I read somewhere that they had arch support and I tend to not like it, so I am hoping they are flatter so I can hurry up and order a pair of the MADE IN JAPAN before they sell out. 


The new HILLSIDE Sneakers look great.  I love the Army Green pair, but I'd probably switch out the laces to black. 

The Real McCoys sneakers are perfect.  I need to stop drooling and order  a pair of them. 


Sell me your Mister Freedom stuff. :)

those jonsin' for some US-made sneakers not from NB...here's the only option i've been able to uncover after much digging. anyone else tempted by these?

slap some thick white laces on these bad boys and you might have something...MIGHT. it looks like they're made for postal carriers so i'm guess they'd be pretty comfortable...i'm getting a mid-80s reebok vibe from them though.

AWS, I think they tried to design the last to mimic Alden's modified, which is known for its arch support and very popular here in Japan. But, there really is only so much arch support you can give in a shoe/sole like this. The shoe hugs your arch a bit, but I would say that it is still a flat footbed. I can't really imagine it being a problem for you.....

My recommendation would be the hi tops in either white or brown. Both are very nice.

Looks like Anatomica Tokyo is having an event to sell off all their japan made Wakouwa deck shoes starting this Saturday.

Interesting post, in pretty bad English translation, from their creator here (scroll down):

The last line is a prayer for the future....

"In the hope that this sneaker will not flow to the trend of the times. . . . . ."

I make things out of leather.

Just used the discount code to get a pair of The Hillside's sneakers from Hickorees. Went with the Italian camo version because I'm a sucker for DPM.
