Stratford, it is a kind of boots produced by Shoe Maker Chisaka. The words by Shakespeare are engraved on the boots, and they straight tell what you are. So the boots could also be your child.

Shoe Maker Chisaka is a brand established by Chisaka Miki who became a shoe maker after an editor. When she had covered, she met some leather artisans and fell into love deeply with leather shoes. She has especially loved case leather because it tells you true charm of leather. Of course, she uses it for making Stratford.

Chisaka says she hardly has emotional attachment to Stratford in England where Shakespeare was born. She thought “It is better that your shoes have your favorite words on itself because you can remember easily every time you wear them.” Then, Chisaka Miki would like to engrave some universal words. So Shakespeare was selected.


That is made to order, and so you can choose the words to engrave when you give an order to her. On the other hand, it means it tries you on sense.

Moreover, you can select the making method. When you want a pair of steady boots, you had better order shoes by hand-sewn welt process. You can choose mckay process when you want a pair of light shoes. Anyway, the shoes follow your taste as long as they are.

Chisaka Miki says she keeps on using case leather because she wants to make your favorite shoes that you can use through several repairs. Needless to mention, she takes on mending.

It is said your words show yourself. So, Stratford becomes your child who always says what you are.
