After studying product design and shoemaking in London, Takashi Kanokogi returned home to Tokyo and launched RFW (then known as Rhythm Footwear) in 1998. His signature look of refining classics - pure ideas put to form - has broad appeal, but it wasn’t until 2009 that they could be purchased outside Japan.

RFW’s streamlined design and subtle details champion functionality, comfort, and feel. These are easy to wear shoes - versatile style and built to last.
