Shoe shop goes bust after holding closing sale for more than 20 yearsOSAKA
Login to comment
Among the mainstay products of the shoe shop in Osaka was a lineup of "secret shoes," or elevator shoes with thick insoles under the heels to make wearers look taller than they really were.
I always wear such shoes when going on business trips to America so as not to look too short when standing next to the gaikokujin.
