MEXICO SLIP-ON DELUXE/¥28,080(TAX in）
This special Isetan limited model puts forth the Global Green Campaign’s philosophy of a future sustainable society, by providing more advanced things and ideas.
The Onitsuka Tiger x ISETAN model is a shoe that defies common sense; it’s made of paper and leather, in a move to make a more ethical commercial product.
Ethically-sourced materials such as paper fiber and plain leather were used in the construction of this shoe.
The white portion and Onitsuka Tiger stripe of the uppers were made using a traditional art method of Hyogo Prefecture called Himeji Shiro Nameshi, *1 with no chemical processing, for a natural, more ecologically-sound product. Also, the grey part on the sides was made with natural woven paper fabric, *2 chosen for its lessened environmental impact.
*1 This is a type of leather in which the fur is removed from cow skin, which is then treated with salt and vegetable oil, and sun-dried for a natural finish.
*2 Raw materials like edgeworthia chrysantha, broussonetia kazinoki x B. papyrifera, and hemp fiber are processed into paper, then cut into fine shreds and twisted into threads. This fabric-like woven paper fiber has been made in Japan for centuries. Compared with leather, it’s much lighter in weight.
The material of this refined collaboration model exudes a delicate beauty, for a truly sophisticated appeal.
It’s lightweight and a slip-on, so it gives your feet a fresh, unpretentious look.
But it also comes with shoe laces, so you can change up the look depending on your mood.
This summer, go with the ethical MEXICO SLIP-ON DELUXE.
