Impeccably crafted in Japan, these canvas high tops have a simple, elegant silhouette that pairs easily with the rest of your wardrobe. Bearing all the hallmarks of Shoes Like Pottery’s design, each pair is specially hand-stitched from a durable canvas in their factory in Karume Japan. The shoes are then fired in a kiln to create an extra-soft and flexible rubber sole – a vulcanising process known as ‘ka-ryu’ and practiced by only a handful of skilled manufacturers around the world. The sneakers are then branded with a rubber stamp portraying ‘Uchide no kozuchi', a legendary Japanese mallet that when swung is meant to grant its holder’s wishes.

Wear with a classic t-shirt and over-shirt, paired with selvedge denim jeans for a fuss-free weekend outfit.
