7TH FLOOR OF MARUI IS SHOE HEAVEN: GOTHIC LOLITA PUNK BOOTS, LEATHER SHOES.

Leche by Yosuke Gothic Lolita and Sweet Lolita shoes. Cute platform shoes from Tokyo, Japan. Marui Young Shinjuku 0101 department store.

If you have 24 hours left to live and St. Peter’s barred you from the gates, get thee to the seventh floor of Marui Young post-haste. You can have at least gone to shoe heaven… and then died.

Goth rock boots, gothic and sweet lolita cute boots and shoes. Lace up alternative shoes, footwear from Japan, military punk style leather.

The shoe selection at NYC’s Trash & Vaudeville looks like purgatory compared to MaruiOne. Leche by Yosuke dominated the Lolita racks with cute-meets-Victorian Mary Janes and lace-up stompers. (I bought ankle boots for about $75). Antenna, UK Underground, Doc Martens, and skull-printed hi-top sneakers were also kicking it.

Algonquins gothic lolita punk shop in Marui Young Shinjuku 0101 department store. Gosurori fashion, shopping for Harajuku clothing.

Woman cannot live on shoes alone. Algonquins rounds out this floor…

Tokyo shopping for Gothic Lolita clothing. Algonquins punk jackets, butterfly and heart rock emo purses. 80s style pink and black outfits in department store.
…with studded butterfly purses and New Wave influences.

Goth military leather jacket with diamond black and white tie, long white shirt with pointy collar. Black Peace Now goth lolita brand designs from Maruione in Tokyo, Japan.

I put on a Peace Now scarf with a goblin’s head at one end; the store clerk placed a matching devil-horned hoody-hat on my head. I didn’t dare try on a gorgeous pair of Black Peace Now studded knee-boots, which had pointed toes and were wrapped with thin leather strips. (They were around $200.)

h.NAOTO Sixh goth leather purses with studs and chains. Black color Gothic trailing fashion designs, shopping for Goth punk alternative clothes at Marui Young Shinjuku 0101 department store.

h.NAOTO’s Sixh delivered flowing Goth menswear.

Tomorrow, I’ll post TEN photos from the Sweet Lolita shops on the eighth floor… including Metamorphose, Angelic Pretty, and Baby the Stars Shine Bright!

    I hate this blog, taunting me with pretty clothes and shoes out of reach. I was pleased with just hunting down some minna parikka loli-esque shoes, but they would be put to shame on 7th floor shoe mecca.

    I've been looking for DMs here in Tokyo.
    Where exactly is this store?

      You’re in luck: there are many types of mens and womens Doc Martens at Marui Shinjuku. Take the JR to Shinjuku Station, walk right-ish when you leave the east exit, cross toward Studio Alba and it’s basically right there at the corner. Good luck – let me know if you find something!

    Those boots with shoe laces made of actual lace are just amazing… Today is actually my birthday, I wish somebody would read my mind and drop by with a pair! o_o

    The ankle boots on the left in the first pic are the ones you bought right? They look great in white as well! They were a great choice and really not that expensive compared to how high quality they are…
    What kind of Japanese food do you eat while you're in Tokyo? Lots of cute food perhaps? ;)

      Hi Emma,
      Yes, those shoes were gorgeous – I might re-string some of my old leather stompers with lace.

      I was very impressed by Leche by Yosuke; I’d compare the quality to Irregular Choice and Camper. And exactly – great price for the value.

      I’m about to dig into tofu and a picked veggie mix from the corner convini!

    Wow. Nice stealthy camera skills, it must've been hard not to get caught! Your pictures are tempting me even more to go to Tokyo… I'd probably go broke buying only clothes and having no money left over to buy any food! XD I LOVE Black Peace Now!!! Seeing their clothes makes me so excited. Black Peace Now is so elegant and refined, but it's like a more simple elegance without too many frills and laces and added bells and whistles which makes me just adore that brand. Much kudos to you for including Peace Now! <3

    Thanks – I spent a lot of time in the BPN section! Their playing card symbol jewelry was beautiful as well.

    I'm learning the art of “shooting from the hip”… my DSLR hangs from my neck, and when nobody's looking, I aim and click without lifting it ;)

        My dad does that on holidays as well, he always takes pics of random people because he finds that amusing… it is, actually, gives a different feel to holiday pics!
        Is it illegal to take pictures in stores? I mean, it is good advertisement…

        • Posted October 7, 2008 at 6:22 am | Permalink

          It’s not illegal but the stores have a “no photo” policy; people with cameras can disturb the store atmosphere and thwart customers. But they don’t even notice what I’m doing…
