TOKYO— Men on a quest for luxury footwear have three new spots to shop in this city.
John Lobb, Church's and Berluti are all opening new stores in Tokyo within a few weeks of each other, signaling a strong interest in the Japanese consumer and his penchant for pricey footwear. Just last week, Christian Louboutin unveiled a flagship here with an emphasis on men's items, providing further evidence that labels are taking this segment of the market very seriously.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
