Words

This brown duck cloth sneaker with a black sole and toe cap is one of the best versions the Shoes Like Pottery low top I think I've seen, but it's also the hardest to find. Good Weaver has the model exclusively available, alongside other enticing footwear produced in the Kurume region by the likes of Doek and Sols.

Shoes Like Pottery High Top

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

While the low tops came first and have become quite popular over the last couple of years, the latest design from Shoes Like Pottery, a high top variation, is equally as stunning. The shoes are kiln fired in Kurume, utilizing the ka-ryu process employed by only a select few. They are not rushed through production like most sneakers, but made expertly by hand.

Shoes Like Pottery

01

Info

—01. Natural japanese canvas, produced in a kiln.

Words

While you may not always be able to improve upon a classic, you can adapt, develop, and refine it. Thanks to a post on the frequently informative Ready For The House this week, Shoes Like Pottery are now very much on my radar. The company make impeccable canvas and rubber footwear in Japan not too dissimilar from the classic styles produced by BF Goodrich and Converse in years passed. However where these shoes differ is in the manufacturing: each pair is made at the MoonStar factory in Kurume, Japan, where the rubber is attached to the canvas shoe by baking it in a kiln.
