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 vulcanizing 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 Vulcanized 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. Available now at End.
