01JPB "10th Anniversary" Low Top Sneaker in Iron Overdye
- Brand Info
- The signature low top sneaker from Shoes Like Pottery is a flexible and durable canvas sneaker crafted in Japan. This commemorative 10th Anniversary installment was over-dyed in Seattle using a mixture of pomegranate, chestnut, and iron tannin to achieve a color reminiscent of faded black denim. As a result, many of the original details have been altered in color, all of which will continue to fade with wear just like denim. The shoes were forged using the historic Japanese technique "Ka-ryu" - a vulcanizing process that fires the outsoles in a kiln, giving each pair a unique texture and finish. The shoes are fitted with reinforced heels and toes, a cushioned in-sole, and the brand's signature rubber stamp and contrasting blue sole.
