Yohei Fukuda learned shoemaking in Northamptonshire, the traditional home of English shoemaking, followed by a local apprenticeship and then work for several years for London firms.
After returning to Japan he founded Yohei Fukuda in Tokyo in 2008. Since its founding the workshop has grown and now has 4 additional craftsmen, each driven by the same passion for shoemaking and dedication to quality for which Yohei Fukuda shoes are known.
At Yohei Fukuda the aim is to create classically styled shoes of the highest quality that will be of value to their owners for many years. By using the
finest materials and time-tested techniques of traditional bespoke shoemaking, we hope to make shoes
of timeless elegance.
