Tokyo may still be inferior to Milan, Paris, or New York as the center of world fashion. But Tokyo is one of the fashion centers in Asia. Together with Singapore and Hong Kong, Japan has become a cultural mecca in Asia. One of them is sneakers or casual shoes, which are now being hype among young people, not only in Indonesia but throughout the world.
In Tokyo alone, sneakers are gaining ground because the Harajuku style is perfect when wearing sneakers. Then if you walk to Tokyo and want to buy shoes, where is it?

And Gettry shoe store is one of the shoe stores that try to combine how brands like Nike, Adidas, or Reebok are suitable for use with Harajuku style.
