【ULTIMATE TRAINER SH】This Nippon Made shoe is brush-coated to give it a 3-D standalone look

The NIPPON MADE series, which showcases the artisanal quality of Japanese craftsmen with its sneakers, now has a new model, the ULTIMATE TRAINER SH.
It’ll be on shelves starting November 7th at Isetan Shinjuku Main Building Men’s, and from November 23rd at some other Onitsuka Tiger stores.
The handcrafted brush-coating design is different for each pair, depending on the artisan who works on the shoe.

The ULTIMATE TRAINER SH is based on a 1980s cross trainer called the ULTIMATE TRAINER, which was updated and modernized into its current incarnation. The uppers are made of quality leather that’s hand-brushed, giving it a refined yet stylish look. Also, daring brush strokes harden like plaster to give it a 3-D appearance, for a nice, elegant design.

The soft white melts and coats the smooth leather, giving it a touch of class. And check out the hole-punched medallion border. Match these with some classic Autumn / Winter dark tones to really brighten up your feet.

The unique brush-coating and beautiful color are what make the ULTIMATE TRAINER SH so special. And it’s a “NIPPON MADE” item, which means you’ll also be showing off the detailing and fine craftsmanship of Japanese artisans. Check them out.
