To the shoe repair workshop "Hudson Shoe Store".
Murakami became the second generation of the Hudson Shoe Store seven years ago, following the thoughts of the predecessor who was said to be the last handmade shoemaker in Yokohama. Shoes waiting for repairs are lined up on the shelves in the workshop, and leather knives, crocodile, and other shoe tools that are waiting to come out are overflowing around. Mr. Murakami, who gained self-taught skills in the details of repairs while stealing the technology after seeing the movement of the predecessor. "I sharpen my leather knives myself, and I also adjust my needles and threads to my shoes." It is Hudson's style to spend a lot of time deciding that, "Because it is important to listen to the customer's thoughts and requests for their shoes, we will make a preliminary meeting until the customer is satisfied." "Shoe repair shop with lots of meetings" ... Love poured into shoesThe feeling is deep.
"Hudson Shoe Store", which Murakami says in a niche place in Yokohama, is a 5-minute walk from Sorimachi Station on the Tokyu Toyoko Line, in a corner of Matsumoto 3-chome shopping street. Here, in 1961, Masatoshi Sato, the predecessor who worked on the making of shoes for many celebrities, including Prime Minister Shigeru Yoshida, set up a store for 56 years this year. "The Shutter Shopping District seemed to know very little that there was such a great shoemaker in this place. There was no one here who made shoes for the Japanese Prime Minister." The predecessor died, and the shutter was released for about a year at the "Hudson Shoe Store", but Murakami succeeded it seven years ago.
As I wrote at the beginning, here are shoes that have been refused all over the country. Shoes that are said to be unable to respond due to difficult repairs are being brought in through word-of-mouth and the Internet at franchise shoe repair shops that are increasing in the city. Mr. Murakami's reputation as a shoemaker seems to be spreading overseas, and it seems that shoes were sent from Belgium over the sea the other day.

Shoe repair at the Hudson Shoe Store begins with a long reception. It is said that it takes two to three hours for one pair of shoes, especially for first-time customers. "I know that, of course, I had to go to the shop after searching on the internet, not to mention the technology. Some people were worried that they would reduce their earnings (laughs), but they decided to spend their time fully accepting customers until they were satisfied. Then the time will gradually decrease from next time. "
Murakami's repairs are self-taught. Of course, based on what we have gained from the previous generation and accumulated experience until then, we face shoes of the day ... From that point on, there is a once-in-a-lifetime relationship between craftsmen and shoes.

"My commitment is to repair like a shoe. It's not a" repair "but a" remake "." Before the shoes to be remade, the "dialogue with shoes" begins here. In front of you are shoes brought in from other stores. What is the best way to remake this? What materials are used, what tools are used, and in what process?
For example, here. Leather sandals that I was about to work on at the time of the interview.
I watched the sandals for a while, picked them up, put them on the work bench, watched them again, stared at the tools, and silence continued ... Finally, the repair method was decided.
"The sandals are leather on the front but rubber on the back, so even if you make a hole with a normal perforation, the rubber closes quickly. I was worried about how to solve it. " Even though he could see how to proceed, he said that he was going to try it out while checking the condition of the shoes from here.
Murakami like that. It doesn't seem to meet all orders. "I don't want to do repairs until I break the atmosphere of the shoes. I'm originally a profession, so I only know how many craftsmen are making the shoes and what kind of thoughts they are making. I'm sorry, but I'm sorry if I really can't accept it, but I may refuse it. " I think that's the only attitude since I'm seriously facing shoes.

If you've ever been to the Hudson Shoe Store, you'll notice the beauty of the tools that Murakami uses. For example, this leather knife.
"A tool is a life for a craftsman. I actually visit a sharpener who is in Asakusa, learn how to sharpen with a whetstone, and sharpen the blade by myself. To sharpen this leather knife by myself It is said that shoemakers will start when they can do it, and that's the basis for shoe repair. "
In addition, Murakami uses hand-made needles and threads to match the shoes to be repaired.

Tool case used by the predecessor.
The machine that the predecessor used was also working hard in the active duty.
When asked Mr. Murakami about his future plans, "Next year, we will open a shoe store that is made to order in a room of an apartment 200 to 300 meters away from this shop. About 72 feet in pattern order We'll have it ready, "said Hudson fans. The shoe brand logo has already been decided.
"I realized more when I became a shoemaker and inherited this shop, but the old Japanese craftsmen were really desperate to work. I want to work carefully so that our customers can be evaluated as “professionals in the middle”, ”says Murakami. The tools that were neatly maintained, the large machines waiting for their active role, and above all, Murakami's hands with pine tars,He tells his love for shoes.
At the Hudson Shoe Store, we consider "repair of shoes" = "repair of memories" and repair shoes. Shoes are a lot of time with you. Time for travel, school, work, family, lovers and friends. Shoes share various memories. Depending on the condition, it may be cheaper to buy a new one than to repair it. I think that shoes that are repaired even in such a state will surely share more "memories". While we are proud to repair your important shoes, we hope that the repaired shoes will support your health from the bottom of your feet, allow you to spend more time together and share more memories.
