Products That Didn't Make The Cut

And why they didn't quite make it.

Water-Resistance Left Something to Be Desired

Water-Resistance Left Something to Be Desired

Jo Marino Leather Business Shoes were comfortable enough to walk in on a normal day, but not the best when it rains. The soles slipped easily. We could feel the cold as soon as we dipped our foot into the water for the water-resistance test, and at the end of five minutes, our socks were drenched.


Craftsmanship was poor, and that became even more apparent when we cut the shoe open. The cup insole was of an awkward thickness. The leather upper smelled of chemicals. The stitches were all of different lengths.

Wears Down Easily Due to the Too-Thin Material

Wears Down Easily Due to the Too-Thin Material

Kobe Liberal Business Shoes LB209 didn’t mold well to feet and felt stuffy. The soles were light but flimsy and cheap. Slip-resistance and comfort were both rated at a D.


When we sliced the shoe in half, we saw that the front half of the insole and midsole were thin. There was very little padding, and the shoe looked like it would wear down within months. The left and right shoe were also asymmetrical.


AAA+ Business Shoes Long Nose was made of shiny faux leather. Inside, the shoe was way too thin. It was light, but there was zero support and it looked ready to fall apart at any moment. The midsole and innersole also didn’t lie flat, and they kept digging into our feet.

Issues With the Design

Issues With the Design

Arno Men's Business Shoes' soles were synthetic rubber with a wooden heel attached. It was poorly made and the heel doesn’t really reach the floor and it slipped easily. Even though it was light, this pair was unstable and overall tiring to walk in.


When we cut it open, we saw the materials were roughly sewn together. The price and brand name may suggest class, but don’t be fooled.
Issues With the Design

We were shocked at how different the front half and back half of ZEENO Business Shoes Heel Up was. The materials used for the lining, the thickness of the midsole, the shape of the insole… That’s going to translate into pain after a long day of walking.


Visionreast Business Shoes Derby had soles and uppers that were glued together. The materials were too flimsy to offer much support. The cup insole was nothing more than a decorative accent. And there were plenty of discrepancies between the left shoe and the right shoe.

How We Tested Our Products

We searched e-commerce sites popular in Japan, such as Amazon, Rakuten, and Yahoo! Shopping for the best Japanese business shoes available online in Japan. We then picked out the 41 best-selling products and tested them to see which 10 were the best among our pool.

Test ① Craftsmanship

Test ① Craftsmanship

The first thing we evaluated was each product's craftsmanship. 


We collaborated with a specialist who evaluated the following points for each product:

  • Structure of the upper
  • Structure of the lining, midsole, and insole
  • Structure and shape of the outsole
  • Stitching on the upper
  • Symmetry between the left and right shoe

He then graded each pair of shoes on a scale from one to five.

[Test Highlights] Quality is Closely Tied to the Details

[Test Highlights] Quality is Closely Tied to the Details
While we weren't surprised to see a general correlation between price and quality, we were surprised to see that a lot of shoes were made a bit asymmetrically, especially when it came to the height of the soles or the distance between seams on the left versus the right foot.

When considering where the shoe was produced, domestically-produced shoes were slightly better in construction compared to the rest, though shoes produced in Vietnam or Cambodia also receive great scores.

Takahiro Iino
Fashion Journalist
Takahiro Iino

In terms of shoe quality, price and craftsmanship really go hand in hand. I'd like to point out two products in particular.


One is Regal's Business Shoes Plain Toe. The highlight of it was precisely its craftsmanship! The threading was different from other shoes and the lining on the inside of the shoe and the cloth that is firmly sewn and attached to the instep was an example of high-quality standards.


I was also happily surprised that Rinescante Valentiano's business shoes weren't over the top in design. The sewing work on it was done well and it was easy to slip on the feet. Overall, shoes sold at a higher price were made to a better degree.

Test ② Material

Test ② Material

Next, we evaluated each product's materials. To do this, we had our specialist dissect each pair to inspect the materials used for each product. He then evaluated which materials were comfortable, durable, and practical.

[Test Highlight] Regal and Rockport Shoes Had Great Interior Constructions

[Test Highlight] Regal and Rockport Shoes Had Great Interior Constructions

We found most budget shoes have one thing in common: the front part of the footbed, which you usually can’t see, was usually made of cheap materials and showed less than ideal craftsmanship. Regal and Rockport shoes, on the other hand, showed good quality overall.

Takahiro Iino
Fashion Journalist
Takahiro Iino

Regal branded shoes had stable, reliable quality across the board. Rockport has a reputation for not compromising when it comes to the construction of its shoes. However, you could say that these are created to be more like sneakers than men's formal shoes.


After conducting these tests, I believe that price generally matches quality. In other words, the difference in prices really makes a difference in craftsmanship. There are a few shoes that were outside of this norm, but generally, the difference in quality was clearly visible with a divide of about 8,000 yen (~$76) to 10,000 yen (~$95). 

Test ③ Comfort

Test ③ Comfort

After inspecting the technical elements of a shoe, the best way to tell how it's going to perform is to wear it yourself. So we did just that: we slipped on each of the shoes and took them for a stroll. We checked for each of the following factors, then graded each pair on a five-step scale from one to five.


We tested the following: 

  • How form-fitting it was
  • How comfortable it stayed over long walking sessions
  • How breathable it was
  • How slip-resistant it was
Test ③ Comfort
Nowadays, there are more and more shoes built to look like business but feel like sneakers. They have soles with specially designed cushions and are engineered to be as light as possible. Rockport products are a great example.
Takahiro Iino
Fashion Journalist
Takahiro Iino

Rockport has been said to have had one of their employees wear their business shoes and run the New York Marathon before. One of their products, the Dressports 2, looks like your typical business shoe, but it feels nice to wear like a sneaker. 


It's not like the naturally comfy leather soles and cushions we usually see in business shoes, but they have a flexibility that I highly recommend for people looking for a sports-like formal shoe. 

Test ④ Water-Resistance

Test ④ Water-Resistance
We filled a tray with four centimeters of water and soaked our shod feet for five minutes. We then judged how wet our feet got by the color of our gray socks and graded each product on a five-step scale from D to A+.

GORE-TEX Was the Most Resistant

GORE-TEX Was the Most Resistant
Shoes with any kind of water-repelling technology did pretty well on this test, but those that utilized GORE-TEX were especially impressive. Not a drop of water got in. On the other hand, untreated shoes leaked all across the board.
Takahiro Iino
Fashion Journalist
Takahiro Iino

There are quite a few shoes that have been made to repel water, but when you're talking about waterproofing shoes, then GORE-TEX and other types of similar newly developed materials are best.


Every company has their own make and materials, so it's best to check your information before purchasing any pair. However, regardless of the make, water is naturally bad for leather goods, so make sure to take care of and upkeep your shoes.

How to Choose Japanese Business Shoes – Buying Guide

Here are three big things to look out for.

Play It Safe and Choose a Business-Appropriate Design

Personal appearance can still play a huge role in business culture. You want to appear put together from head to toe–nothing out of place and nothing too showy, either.

When it comes to shoes, pay close attention to whether there’s any broguing (flowery perforations) and the shape of the toe cap.

The Reliable, General Purpose Shoe: Plain Toe

The Reliable, General Purpose Shoe: Plain Toe
Plain toes are just what they sound like–the front part of the shoe is free from any ornamentation. They’re unassuming and can be worn most anywhere.
For day-to-day wear, consider a derby. Derbies have their eyelets stitched over the vamps (the part of the shoe that covers your toes). You can actually see the front ends of the quarters, which is the part of a shoe that covers the sides and back of your foot. The shoe above is an example of a derby.
Oxfords, on the other hand, have their quarters tucked away under the vamp. They appear more formal than derbies. The shoe below is an example of an oxford.

The Dressier Shoe: Cap Toe

The Dressier Shoe: Cap Toe
A cap toe is any kind of shoe that has a horizontal line of stitches running across the toe box. The most popular variety in Japan would be the straight tip. There’s no broguing, the sole ornamentation being the stitches themselves. It’s considered a formal design.
If you’re looking for decorative perforations along the horizontal seam, you’re looking for a punched cap toe. The broguing gives the shoes a bit of flair. It’s not as austere as the straight tip, but if you get a pair of punched cap toe Oxfords in black smooth leather, you shouldn’t have a problem even at formal events.

Consider the Material and Structure of the Shoe

You don’t need to be a connoisseur to identify a badly made shoe.

Learn about Different Types of Leather and Why Full Grain is So Highly Regarded

Learn about Different Types of Leather and Why Full Grain is So Highly Regarded
The uppers of most business shoes are constructed from leather. You have your natural leathers, coming from animals like cow, horse, pig, goat, and deer. Natural leather wears well over time, taking on a beautiful patina. It’s also flexible and breathable. Of all the types of natural leather, full grain is of the highest quality.
Full grain leather is smooth and naturally has few blemishes. It therefore doesn’t need to be sanded down or treated, so it appears softer and warmer than corrected grain leather. Corrected grain leather has a plasticky look to it, as it was crafted from imperfect leather and then buffed and treated until the blemishes disappeared. It’s the budget pick.
Faux leather‘s also another wallet-friendly option. Faux leather usually has a laminated surface, so it’s less breathable than natural leather and cracks with time. Faux leather is easier to care for, however. It’s also evolving, as manufacturers try to develop new ways to produce faux leathers of higher and higher quality.

Make Sure the Rest of the Shoe is Well-Constructed–That is, Sleek but Durable

Make Sure the Rest of the Shoe is Well-Constructed–That is, Sleek but Durable

There are a few things you should look at when you check for craftsmanship.

The first is the quality of the seams. Are they neat and tight? Are there even seams to begin with? Some leather uppers are glued to their soles, which makes it impossible to repair the shoes as they wear out. Make sure, too, that the stitches at the bottom of the sole and the top of the welt line up; if they don’t, then that needlework is purely decorative.
You also want to look at the symmetry of the shoes and pay attention to the materials that are used inside. This isn’t always true, but manufacturers that explain the construction of their shoes are to be trusted more, as they’ve got something to take pride in.
Finally, look at the outsole. If you’re hoping for an elegant finish, then leather soles are your best bet; they’re sleek and classy. Rubber soles are more slip-resistant, but pay close attention to the profile of the shoes before purchase. There’s a chance they’ll appear cheap or clunky.

Don’t Forget About Practical Features as Well

Shoes aren’t just about looks; you have to walk in them too.

Because Floors Get Wet When It Rains: Slip-Resistance

Because Floors Get Wet When It Rains: Slip-Resistance

Tiles are dangerous, stairs are dangerous, and so many other places become dangerous when it rains and you don’t have slip-resistant shoes.

The most typical topple-proof shoes have rubber soles with tire-like treading. Manufacturers, however, are coming up with tweaks and alternatives to streamline profiles, such as lining just the sides of the soles with leather or a similar material and using rubber for the rest.

For Those That Walk: Comfort Over Time

For Those That Walk: Comfort Over Time
The first order of business is to make sure that sizing is perfect. We’re not just talking about the numbers–if you have wide feet, then get something in a wide fit–the same if you have narrow.
Then make sure the insole isn’t completely rigid so it can mold itself to the shape of your foot. Cork footbeds are a good choice because they’re relatively soft, absorb impact, and are odor-resistant. If you need extra arch support or anything of the like, make sure that’s addressed as well.

If You Wear Shoes for More than a Few Minutes a Day: Breathability

If You Wear Shoes for More than a Few Minutes a Day: Breathability
Nowadays, there’s all kinds of technologies in play to make shoes more breathable. These shoes will often be lighter and more flexible (utilizing the best of materials like full-grain leather). They might be lined with mesh or feature a trademarked air circulation system, too.
You can always read reviews to get a feel for how breathable a pair of shoes are; we also tested all the shoes we purchased for ventilation.

Unless You Like Wet Socks: Water-Resistance

Unless You Like Wet Socks: Water-Resistance
While leather won’t be ruined by a little splashing, you shouldn’t wear them during a downpour. First of all, leather absorbs moisture like a sponge, which could not only get you wet but make the material distend.
You could spritz your leather shoes with a waterproof spray or invest in a pair of galoshes. Or you could look specifically for dress shoes that have been treated for water resistance, especially if you live in a rainy part of the world.

Types of Men’s Dress Shoes

Just so you have an idea of what’s out there and want to consider aesthetic.

Straight Tip: Characterized by the Horizontal Line of Stitches Running Across the Toe Box

Straight Tip: Characterized by the Horizontal Line of Stitches Running Across the Toe Box

We’ve mentioned this a few times already, but to reiterate, straight tips have a line of stitches that connects the welt on the right side of the shoe to the welt on the left. (Anything to the front of that line won’t wrinkle easily.) There’s no other ornamentation.

Straight tip is widely considered the most formal type of dress shoe and is appropriate for most any occasion.

Plain Toe: Characterized by the Lack of Flowery Designs, Especially on the Toe Box

Plain Toe: Characterized by the Lack of Flowery Designs, Especially on the Toe Box
Plain toes don’t have any kind of ornamentation. Design elements make themselves apparent in the shape of the shoe itself, resulting in a sleek and graceful profile. They're also appropriate for most events.

Monk Strap: Characterized by a Buckle Fastening

Monk Strap: Characterized by a Buckle Fastening
Monk straps are fastened shut with either a buckle or two. They’re easier to slip in and out of than laced shoes. However, they do look more casual than laces and may not be suited for formal occasions.

Wingtip: Characterized by Their Beautiful Ornamentation

Wingtip: Characterized by Their Beautiful Ornamentation
Wingtips get their name from the broguing that runs across the toe box, which takes the shape of a distant bird with outstretched wings. There’s often arabesques punched into the tip as well.
It’s said that wingtips originated from work shoes, when laborers would punch holes into their footwear to drain water collected when trekking through forests or wetlands.

U Tip: Characterized by the Round Nose and Stitches

U Tip: Characterized by the Round Nose and Stitches
U tips are held together by a curved seam running the perimeter of the toe cap. Many are derbies, and because they’re flexible and comfortable, they’re often taken golfing or to other sporting events.
U tips have also inched their way onto the business scene, though we’d avoid wearing them on formal occasions.

Slip-Ons: Characterized By Their Lack of Fastenings

Slip-Ons: Characterized By Their Lack of Fastenings
There are no laces and no buckles to contend with on these shoes. You slip the shoes on and you slip the shoes off. They’re convenient but not formal.

Looking to Fill out the Rest of your Wardrobe?
