Made-in-Japan sneakers crafted like a piece of fine art

If you’ve ever watched a potter at work, you’ve seen the skill and artistry that goes into each piece. At the 135-year-old MoonStar factory in Kurume, each pair of shoes is not only crafted by hand, the vulcanization of the rubber sole (or ka-ryu in Japanese) happens in kilns where extreme temps create durable, flexible soles. Suddenly the name Shoes Like Pottery makes a whole lot of sense. With a minimalist design, retro hi-top profile, and unique SLP detailing, you’ll feel the craft that went into the SLP01 JP Hi with every step.

  • High-quality handmade shoes from Japan, newly available in the USA
  • Crafted from beautifully textured cotton canvas fabric
  • Each shoe undergoes the ka-ryu process in which it is fired in a kiln to create a flexible and durable outsole
  • Blue rubber sole adds a flash of style with each step
  • The elastic foxing tape around the sole is stamped with a hand-embossed SLP seal
  • Outsole cemented to the canvas with rubber adhesive for lasting durability
  • Hand-crafted by skilled craftsmen in Kurume, Japan
  • Upper: Canvas
  • Outsole: Vulcanized rubber
  • Shoes Like Pottery run slightly large
  • If you are between sizes, we suggest sizing down
