Shoes Like Pottery is a highly unique Japanese label offering up canvas trainers with a difference. The brand uses a distinctive vulcanizing process, or ‘ka-ryu’ in Japanese, that’s performed by only a select handful of shoe manufacturers around the world.
Each shoe is fired in a kiln, just like pottery, causing a chemical reaction in the rubber soles which makes them highly flexible, soft and durable. Clean, fuss-free designs lend an irresistibly wearable feel to this range, ideal for any cool off-duty wardrobe. Meanwhile each subtle blue logo portrays a Japanese hammer known as 'Uchide no kozuchi', or the Lucky Mallet, which is thought to grant its holders wishes.
