The Inspiration Of The Sneakers

For the collaboration, Nigel Cabourn and Mihara Yasuhiro were inspired by one of Nigel’s favorite styles of the Mihara collection. The front of the sneaker resembles a classic American rubber basketball silhouette, while the back is inspired by a leather bowling shoe style. Transforming these two sneakers into one style gives it a vibrating and fresh look and feel. American vibes are coming together, fused with a continuous sole.
