I recently found another photo of the mysterious Ushi Nagar pointe shoe model and still have as many questions about this brand as I did in my previous post about them. It appears that Ushi Nagar may still be in business.
The nice part about this photo is that a telephone number from the England area can be seen imprinted on the insole of the shoe. I must say that this is a unique place to stamp a business telephone number. Unfortunately, this is a little too long distance for me to call from the states.
This is a very fascinating shoe and an equally fascinating maker. Whoever Ushi Nagar is, he has managed to hide himself away from the U.S. market quite nicely. I am looking forward to the day when I can learn more about this maker and exactly where he makes his pointe shoes.
