Brass Shoe Repair in Tokyo

A little heritage porn for you all. ACL with the help of Red Wing Japan “discovered” one of the finest looking shoe repair joints in Tokyo. “There’s a shoe repair place called Brass in Tokyo like no other I have ever been to. The guys from Red Wing Japan took me there last time I was in country. Often it’s those moments — like when I was first introduced to Brass in person — that make me realize the Japanese can still do ‘Americana’ better than Americans. I could easily see a place like Brass in Portland or Brooklyn or L.A., but I doubt it would have the customer base to actually survive. Maybe I’m wrong though.”
