    I replied to a recent thread about which locations in Tokyo to buy Winning gloves.
    There are two shops that have them in stock.

    These two shops are both open for retail sales.

    1.) Center Sports in Shibuya.
    They have the standard colors in stock.

    2.) Fitness Shop in Suidobashi.
    They have a huge selection, with many custom colors in stock.

    Fitness shop in Suidobashi has a big selection; pictured below.

    last week I emailed the Winning Company to ask if their factory was open for retail sales. Their reply is pasted below:

    "Thank you for you inquiry.
    The address of our Tokyo office is as follows.

    But we are sorry to say, our stock is very low because of so many back orders.
    so We recommend you purchasing from our retail store.

    Regarding prices in Japan. As of June 2020 the exchange rate is roughly:
    ¥10,000 is equal to $94 USD
    ¥20,000 is equal to $187 USD
    ¥30,000 is equal to $280 USD
    ¥40,000 is equal to $374 USD.

    You'll have to do your own conversions in the future. But those rates are current as of June 2020.

    I mentioned the shop in Shibuya called "Center Sports", they only stock the standard colors. Their prices are a little lower because they are NOT charging the 8% tax.

    The Fitness Shop that the pictures below were taken at DOES charge the additional 8% tax.

    Of course, Japan is expensive in general. It cost me ¥700 yen each way to take the train (approx. $13 round trip). and about ¥2,500 for parking at the train station. (approx. $22 USD)

    Prices on Japanese products are high, but so is the cost of living as well as the cost of doing business.

    With all of that being said, here are the pictures.

    Cheers Gents!

    Y40,000 :-(

    If I ever make it back to Japan, I'll go in so that maybe I'll be blessed to be able to touch a pair of Winning gloves cos I sure as hell can't afford to own a pair!

    Is it me, or has the price of Winnings gone up dramatically in the last year or two?

    Are there retail locations in other major cities in Japan? Like in Kobe, Sapporo, Osaka, Kyoto, or Nagoya?

    I'm not sure.
    Any of the "Fitness Shops" you see should have Winning gloves.

    They may not all have a complete lineup like the shop in Suidobashi does, but they are dealers.

    For example, I went to one Fitness Shop that was located in a shopping mall.
    They only had Windy gloves in stock.
    When I asked they said the could order any Winning gear and have it there within 2 days.

    That depends on the item.
    The guy at the shop logged into a website for dealers and looked up a few items to see if they were available in the system.

    If it's in their system, they can get it in 2 days.

    Custom stuff will vary.
