Maiden Noir has teamed up with Japanese brand Buddy for Spring 2014. Buddy is a small independent footwear company based in Osaka, Japan and was founded in 2011 by Tetsu Iizuka. The footwear is handcrafted with care in small batches. For the Maiden Noir Spring 2014 collection, the brand produced a mid-top chukka in three versions. Next to a special round collaborative leather tag on the laces, a special insole tag has been designed. We especially like the more subtle black/vegetable-tanned leather option from the collection.
Look out for a release of the sneakers in the coming weeks at select retailers around the globe.
