Japonica shoes are surprisingly very comfortable and have a boldly unique design of east meets west. I have heard this collection has created quite a “following” since their introduction in 2002. I’ve been very lucky to find my size still on sale (that’s the best feeling). The only store that offers them in the U.S., to my knowledge, is:
111 E Main St
Mount Kisco, NY 10549
I always enjoy speaking with the lovely husband-wife team of Chiaroscura; there’s never a lack of an interesting story. Brands like Petra, Beverly Feldman, and Membur are among many of their cutting-edge offerings.
