New brand alert! | Introducing Miyagi Kogyo

Ending 2023 with a bang, we are thrilled to introduce a new addition to our curated collection – Miyagi Kogyo. Behind this name lies a rich history of craftsmanship and resilience that dates back to 1941.

Founded in Sendai City, Miyagi Kogyo began its journey with a vision to create exceptional footwear. At its peak, the company boasted a workforce of nearly 2000 employees. Unfortunately, the ravages of the Second World War led to the destruction of their factory. Undeterred, Miyagi Kogyo rose from the ashes, rebuilding in Nanyo City, Yamagata Prefecture.

In 1964, Miyagi Kogyo made significant strides by entering into a technical partnership with A. Baker & Sons from the United Kingdom. Actively embracing authentic techniques, the brand established itself as a leading shoemaker in Japan.

Within the Miyagi Kogyo atelier, a unique environment fosters the creativity of its artisans. Young talents, some with European apprenticeships under their belts, work towards independence. Outside regular working hours, they have unrestricted access to the workshop's machinery and materials, allowing them to dedicate late nights to their craft.

Within their ethos of encouraging creativity and independence, numerous sub-brands have emerged under the Miyagi Kogyo umbrella, each with their own unique lineup of the finest leather shoes. This year, we are proud to introduce two of these sub-brands, "Jamvaida" and "Jinto" who bring to the table their expertly crafted leather boots and loafers.

The Miyagi Kogyo launch collection drops on 1/19 @ Midnight (JST)
