Finally, a perfect match. Rarely do I get an opportunity where a brand and I fit together cohesively in every single vein possible. I don’t think that’s ever happened until just last week. Enter Tsubo, a Japanese rooted shoe brand that silently screams bad ass street style and one I’m excited to be wearing.
Some will say it’s “just a shoe,” but for me there’s a feeling I get wearing a brand that is somehow connected to my Japanese roots. Ask any Japanese American (specifically in LA) and you’ll hear and feel a sense of pride when they talk about anything related to Japanese food, pop culture, fashion, or products. I’m in that camp for sure. Which is why I love sporting brands like these.
All of Tsubo’s shoes remix casual and sporty style into one. In a nutshell, that essentially is me. Casual over dressy. Sneakers over heels. And they are all under $160.
I’m wearing the Airi Chelsea Boot which is probably the most versatile boot I own now. It’s even got a foam insole making it comfy enough to run after FedEx trucks with. By the way, Tsubo in Japanese essentially translates to “pressure point” which is rather fitting don’t ya think?
It is my hope to do another Father Daughter trip to Japan sometime next year. I miss everything about it and can see these booties adventuring all over Tokyo. For now, SF will have to do.
Thank you Tsubo for spawning a more personal entry. Amazing what a great pair of shoes can do :) Part II with Tsubo will be on Monday. Thank you for reading!
