We’ve teamed up with Japanese shoemaker Shoes Like Pottery to develop a special Sunspel x Shoes Like Pottery low-top trainer which references our shared passion for simplicity and intricate craftsmanship. Staying true to the brand’s classic design, we’ve subtly updated the trainers in an enduring shade of blue that should work effortlessly with the rest of your outfit.
Featuring all the hallmarks of Shoes Like Pottery’s trainers, 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 trainers 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.
Round out the perfect warm-weather look by pairing with one of our classic t-shirts, jeans or chinos.
