“Good shoes gives a sense of satisfaction when wearing it and adds elegant beauty and depths to customer’s life.”

The standards we select the collection of shoes are highly particular. We take into accounts whether the shoes is valuable after we try out all the shoes as the customer’s perspective. The selected collections imply our desire for customers ‘To experience comfortable, high quality, and honest brand’s shoes’. The customers can find various collections range from entry collection to high priced collection such as more than $2,000.

After a customer choose the desired type of shoes at Unipair store, the staff will measure the size of customer carefully. The customer can try 3 different sizes that is similar to his/her size and will find the well-fitted shoes that perfectly match the length, width, and the top of foot. Futhermore, the customers can receive style guides from trained staffs more than shoes sizes. The style guides include preferred outfit, the purpose of buying shoes and budgets.

More than 90% of shoes that Unipair choose and sell are made with ‘Goodyear Welted’ construction. The advantage of goodyear welted shoes is the outsole can be replaced if it worn out. Also the goodyear welted shoes has high durability, comfortable fitting when walking and less tiredness when standing for a long time. Even the customer have worn the shoes for more than 10 years, the shoes that replaced the outsole will fit perfectly because the shape changed as the shape of feet and the softened leather is much more comfortable than new shoes.




“Some people wondered the necessity of buying expensive shoes because the way of dressing and lifestyle became more casual these days. However, ‘wearing well-made shoes’ is an attitude to protect specific culture and a sophisticated way to show kind of romance. If you wear a proper clothes and shoes for special dinner at restaurants, it will make your partner and the time especial. The attitude that keeping T.P.O(Time, Place, Occation) is quite essential rules for mens and give elegance to them. Unipair hopes to be the part of sharing these lifestyles with customers.”
