LONDON SUPER TRUNK SHOW 2019 BRAND SHOWCASE #8 JSEP

JSEP is the combination of 3 Japanese shoe brands: Oriental/Matsumoto, Miyagi Kogyo, and Kiten

Ahead of the free-trade-agreement with EU, which is expected to be in place already in February, Japanese brands are introduced to the European market (with Brexit it™s still uncertain what happens in England with this, we™ll see, but the super trunk is held before).Jsep, Japan Shoes Export Platform, are introducing Oriental/Matsumoto, Miyagi Kogyo, and Kiten. They also attended last year and made a big impression. Make sure to really take the chance and study these up-close, if you happen to visit this year’s event.

Here™s a quick summary of all three brands.

The last brand is a bit different, it™s Kiten who makes more casual shoes. They are made with a Bologna construction, a sort of moccasin type, which makes really comfortable shoes, and since they have full rubber outsoles cemented on it doesn™t leak any water. A good compromise between comfort and durability. Price around 265/€300.
