John has revitalized the retro-90s Tokyo lace-up chukka ankle boot, while keeping the same extremely exaggerated and sharp pointed toe for that Fluevog Flair. The Kawasaki features soft suedes or shiny rub-off leathers with a blackened finish, blind eyelets, and waxed laces, and are named in honour of the Japanese industrial city that makes all the wonderful products we love and use regularly, from cameras to jetskis, hello kitty
to rice pucks. Laser etched into the neolite sole is John's message in Japanese which translates to "Hello, my name is John Fluevog
and I Love you" (and he does... he just told us).

The Tokyo Kawasaki fits a little long and narrow.

I wear a woman's 11 so I went with a men's 9 in the Tokyos, even though they say it runs large, because I was concerned that if I went a size down my toes wouldn't be happy fitting into this pointy shoe. So, yeah, they're looong, but the extra room at the end doesn't bother me because they feel so great on my feet. I get a lot of compliments from people who appreciate offbeat style. I bought them because I work on my feet and need a break from heels and lady shoes sometimes, and the gray is the perfect compliment to bright skinny jeans.

Bought these last minute to compliment my first bespoke suit. Not only did they work perfectly with the look, but they were extremely comfortable right out of the box!

I bought the Kawasaki's in both the olive and red, and what the heck, there should be orange and yellow as well. Come on John, spice up our feet even more.

I bought these shoes with the idea that I would be investing in a quality pair of dress shoes to be worn for special occasions only. I've grown to love them so much over such a short period of time, that they have become my go-to everyday shoes. I don't regret my purchase at all; the only thing I would change is buying more colours.
