If you love Harajuku, you know this shop! Here’s our report on TOKYO BOPPER, one of the long-stablished shops in Harajuku, specialized for platform shoes.
The shop staff showed us the coordinates matching with shoes.
The first one is a monotone coordinate!

原宿が好きな人なら知らない人はいない、原宿路面店の老舗のひとつ、厚底靴で知られるTOKYO BOPPERに行ってきました。TOKYO BOPPERのスタッフさんに、靴に合わせたコーデを作ってもらいました。まずは靴を引き立てるモノトーンのコーデから。


Yama san, who has been working over 10 years in the shop, showed us this monotone soft coordinate with ribbon, lace, and chiffon.



Round gray shoes are by BELLY BUTTON, a brand of TOKYO BOPPER.
This is “Pad Tongue Shoes” released in last November.

Okame-san, shop staff working for a year, introduced us monotone coordinate too! Yellow is really eye-catching in black and white.
Okame-san, having been a huge fan of TOKYO BOPPER, says “my way of making coordinate is to put shoes on the center, then consider a color that enhances them, and add the color on clothes.”

スタッフ歴1年の、Okameさんも、モノトーンコーデにチャレンジしてくれました。モノトーンに黄色が差し色になっています。TOKYO BOPPERのファンだったOkameさん「靴を中心に、靴を引き立てる色を考えて、服に色を加えるのがわたし流です」とのこと。


These shoes are the latest item, released at the end of January.
It is marked by “roundness,” rounded sole, cut-work and shapes of leather.
PRICE: 24,000JPY



Okame-san says “this dress is very popular among foreign customers.”
“Shoes are black, so I chose not-too-edgy, girly and fluffy clothes.”



There’s no name for the shoes yet. The shop manager Shimanoe-san says “the shoes by TOKYO BOPPER are named by our customers or shop staffs after the release.” Shoes by TOKYO BOPPER are made and grown up in such process.
PRICE: 24,000JPY

靴の名前は、まだないとのこと。「TOKYO BOPPERの靴は、アイテムが世に出てから、お客さんやスタッフから呼ばれる愛称が名前になります」と店長の島ノ江さん。靴と人とが化学反応を重ね、靴を育てながら売るのが、TOKYO BOPPER流です。

In the white space like an art gallery, there are special efforts for the customers to look the shoes closely. The shop manager Shimanoe-san says, “we put the importance on white space that our customers can imagine various situations.”



There’re more and more attractive points for TOKYO BOPPER, so in the next article, we’ll introduce “colorful coordinates matching with shoes.”
