Mihara Yasuhiro and Chapel of Dawn worked together on a set of half zip leopard sneakers for spring.
The design of this collaboration derives from personal preferences of Chaper of Dawn’s Juno and Mihara Yasuhiro. Yasuhiro is also responsible for product development and manufacturing. The design takes shape over one year, and made in Mihara Yasuhiro signature duo-material. Keeping the original zip detail, the back half of the shoe is wrapped with horsehair; the front half is made in toweling material, with tie-dye leopard print effect. It is then mixed with a special re-enforcing ingredient to hold the shoe in shape.
Available at THINK SILLY from March 3, 2011 in brown or dark grey.
