Shoes Like Pottery make some of the finest canvas sneakers available today, thanks in part to the rare process that gives them their ever so slightly unusual name.

A vulcanising process carried out by only a handful of skilled manufacturers and named ‘Ka-ryu’ in the original Japanese, Shoes Like Pottery fire each pair of sneakers in a kiln, giving the sole a uniquely flexible and highly durable finish.

Hand stitched in Japan by a selection of skilled craftsmen, the each pair of Shoes Like Pottery sneakers  are finished off with a wax stamp style sole decal depicting the ‘Uchide no kozuchi’ a magic mallet which, when swung, was believed to grant it’s holders wishes.
