Good Shoes Never Die
A shoe repair shop in Yokohama. Owner Murakami Rui repairs badly damaged shoes refused by other shops. Working with customer wishes in mind, he takes great care, disassembling and replacing damaged sections, reinforcing as needed, even going as far as to make new wooden forms. He aims to preserve the original feel, cherishing not just the shoes, but the memories they hold. He hopes their revived shoes will carry them far into the future. This is what drives his passion.
