SHOES LIKE POTTERY 01JP - HIGH SNEAKER - BLACK (swipe left to view the full gallery)
Shoes Like Pottery make some of the finest canvas sneakers available today, thanks in part to the rare process that gives them their ever so slightly unusual name. A vulcanising process carried out by only a handful of skilled manufacturers and named 'Ka-ryu' in the original Japanese, Shoes Like Pottery fire each pair of sneakers in a kiln, giving the sole a uniquely flexible and highly durable finish. Hand stitched in Japan by a selection of skilled craftsmen, the Vulcanised High Sneaker is finished off with a wax stamp style sole decal depicting the 'Uchide no kozuchi', a magic mallet which, when swung, was believed to grant it's holders wishes.
