Shoes Like Pottery, based in Kurume, Japan, produce canvas shoes with a rubber sole baked on in a kiln. The name and marketing of the brand reflects their production method and they are proud of their highly crafted and beautiful texture, created by hand by skilled workers.

Attaching the soles using the same process as pottery results in the streamlined shoe design being softer, more flexible and with increased durability. Shoes Like Pottery are available from stockists such as South Willard in black, indigo or natural, and will set you back $145-$195. Click through to see photos of the canvas shoes:
