Take a look at the Sa-Me from FUGU.

    An awesome looking shoe that makes any outfit look fantastic! Made of a sturdy and thick canvas material, which I have cleaned numerous times and still hasn’t faded. A super fast and easy method of putting them on, they also have a steel toe which helps the shoe maintain it’s shape very well, but also makes sure you can’t even feel when somebody accidentally steps on your toes. Moreover, the weight of the shoe is still light considering.

    The team at Fugu were nothing short of utterly and overly helpful and very pleasant to deal with. Nothing was ever an issue, rather they always tried to accommodate to every question. Super prompt email replies, always ended with a smile, their customer service is on point. Even down to the way the package looked once it arrived; wrapped carefully and beautifully, with a few added bonuses in there, which was a lovely surprise.

    I have nothing short of excellent to say about Fugu, and I would recommend them as a company, as people, and for the product.

    Much thanks once again and all the best!

    Wide Toe Like a Gym Shoe.

    Wide toe box is great for my bunion. Doesn’t sound pretty but hey that’s life. I ordered my standard shoe size and their size to match included a half size larger. Foot has room for a standard & thick outdoor sock. Can roll down sturdy canvas sides to create a different look. I like the inserts, a little arch support, feels comfortable.Thick sole for protection against sharp thorns, stones, flexes easier than my Ahnu hiking shoes. Sole has 1″ rubber edge so good for little-wet pavement. Velcro straps sturdy and adjustable great for my skinny ankles. There is a pad sewn inside for outside ankle bone to prevent rubbing. I purchased to take to warm weather vacation locations for walking casual hikes and streetwear. Can wear with longer skirt, hiking pants/shorts. Easy to slip on and off. Looks like I can machine wash them (remove inserts) and air dry, perfect. Will use everyday.

    Functional, great support, and still fashionable!

    Absolutely fantastic!!! I was looking for a pair of shoes that resembled boots, but that you could also use for light running and hiking, all the while staying fashionable.
    These are EXACTLY what I wanted!
    I used some paints to spruce them up a bit but, wow! I am blown away by how perfect they are!
    They have decent support but come with inserts and they feel great!
    They fit perfectly too!
    My only thing I would point out is that the cuffs are shorter than the pictures make them appear (in my eyes at least) , but they are still plenty tall!

    Gosh, seriously will be ordering these again when my first pair goes out.

    These BOOTS! I was searching for a pair of versatile daily wear vegan boots that would stand up in the rain and do me right. I am a yoga teacher so I’m on foot through town all day and the easy on off is excellent for slipping into and out of the studio with ease and doorway removal at clients’ homes. The day after they arrived I wore them for a day-long trek in the drizzle through the woods and meadows of Storm King Art Center… the mud came off with a quick wipe and not a blister to show for it. It was love at first sight for me with these and I was not disappointed. Pair 2 is in my near future… and think my husband is getting a pair too. Thank you Fugu… and if you’re still reading this. Stop and get yourself a pair.

    I’ve had a pair of these since August 2018.

    So far they have withstood a wide range of challenging conditions while providing comfort and protection. I can comfortably wear men’s Big & Tall insoles in them too. I’m 200+ lbs and wear a US Men’s 13/13.5 shoe size. The UK47-JP30 size fit perfectly.

    I got a pair of these to take to the 2018 Burning Man festival and out of 13 years attending in many different shoes, the Sa-Me boots provided the best footwear experience. They kept the dust out no matter how hard I danced, stomped, or rolled around in the dust. It was a great comfort amidst the harsh conditions to know my feet were safe from the elements. The hard toecap saved my toes from many a critical hit by other peoples feet, bikes, and random camp hardware during setup and tear down. When I got back home, I was even able to wash most of the dust out via hand wash (I didn’t know these could go in the washing machine at the time).

    I then used these boots to do install work on residential construction sites and they worked out surprisingly well. They provided great stability while climbing ladders, as well as protection from falling objects, hard corners, etc. The Velcro is a big plus for super quick and easy on/off compared to lacing a regular pair of work boots, and makes finished property walkthroughs with the homeowner a breeze. Additionally, the shoe base easily accommodates disposable shoe-covers found at most job sites and since it’s smooth the covers don’t catch when you try to take them off.

    These have been practically the only shoe I’ve worn since I got them since they combine the functionality of a boot, the comfort of a high-top, and a universal style which easily dresses up and down. Even after I get them super dirty I still get compliments on how cool they are.

    Best work, hiking, biking, and relaxing shoes I’ve ever owned. After wearing clunky steel toed work boots all day, my ankles and lower legs were weak. Takes time to let your body adjust to not heel-striking, but it is worth the adjustment period. Wore my first pair for 2 years. Bought another and use the old ones for work/painting shoes.

    Phenomenal in both style, durability, and comfort. I can’t tell you how comfortable these things are, and the number of compliments I’ve gotten surpasses any other boot or shoe I’ve ever owned as well.
    Now to explain the durability. I worked at a construction/sign company for nearly ten months then I worked at a camp for three months where I was remodeling and building a cabin. I’ve also taken these boots on a number of hikes and road trips and the still are in one piece. The crazy thing is, these things haven’t lost their comfort at all!
    The metal toe cap has saved my feet more than once when I worked at the sign company. I nearly crushed my toes under a few hundred pound sign, but the toes saved a trip to the emergency room. The tread is very durable. Admittedly it did begin to peel after the 11 month mark, but a little bit of silicon and glue and my boots were as good as new.
    This is honestly just an information dump of all of my favorite things about this boot. If you’re even remotely interested in these boots, they are well worth the price if not more. I’m actually leaving this review as I’m about to buy my second pair.

Japanese Size guide

Easily find your correct shoe size:

The length of the red line in Centimeters is your actual Japanese shoe size.

If you want to know the exact length of your new shoe, simply measure as in this example (diagonal line and not a straight line) and match it to the closest Japanese shoe size. VERY IMPORTANT: Measure both legs and use the longest line you get as your guide for your shoe size. It is also better to measure twice to make sure you didn’t miss your measurements. Example: if your red line is 24cm on your left foot and 24.5cm on your right foot, you should get the JP24.5 shoe size. Japanese Shoe Size Conversion Chart US/UK
