Nana Katase and Boots

She was involved in an event to help a company promote its product. Japanese actress Nana Katase was present at an event (September 2014) to help an Australian boots company to promote its product, UGG Boots. The goal was to help UGG Australia start a new customizing service called “UGG BY You” and there is a store in Shibuya. Note: this is an old news story but it is still significant today in 2020 because of the constant advances in technology. The story about UGG Boots was the first time I ever heard of Nana Katase.

This store is the first such store to allow customers to design and customize their own boots. They have the option to choose which colors or designs appeal to them. There are over 100 million combinations and the customer can wear boots which no one else really has. Katase commented on the boots saying: “To be able to design and create my own original UGG boots is really cool. I’d like to design boots and give them to my friends as a present, too.” She made this comment and it became public on the website JapanToday.

Nana Katase and a Glimpse Into Her Interesting Romance

Her relationship status has been something of a mystery. It was first reported by Yahoo News that Katase in August 2014, then 32 was dating actor Junpei Mizobata, then 25 years old. The two of them met when they were co-stars on the NTV drama called 35-sai no Koukousei. It was said that their chemistry was so good that they really hit it off and there were reports of the two meeting frequently at bars. However, her management company denied reports that the two were even dating. There is a tabloid magazine called Josei Seven that released a few photos of them shopping together and leaving a famous bar. Nana has denied that she was dating him in the past, saying that the two of them just had a normal discussion and that Junpei was just asking her questions that were work related. It turns out that Katase was not lying because the two of them had been together since the start of 2014.
