The model that ELEST chose for collaboration this season is "HOESER SLIDE"
Compared to KEEN's popular model YOGUI, the toes are clogged. It has no impression and is characterized by a giku-shaped comfort that fits comfortably on the foot.
There is no doubt that ELNEST's tasteful prints, which are not found in inline models, will attract attention at festivals, camping, BBQ, etc.!
13,000 years ago, earthenware and clay figurines began to be made in ancient Japan using natural materials such as soil.
It is the beginning of the Jomon period, in which patterns are applied with ropes, manufacturing with advanced technology pursuing practicality and design, and a rich culture is nurtured.
The Jomon people lived a life centered on hunting.
The Jomon people's view of nature and rich spirituality, which expresses their awe for nature, are powerful and mysterious in the earthenware, stoneware, clay figurines, and clothing created from living in harmony with nature. It is given as a typical design.
And it is said that it was possible to foster a rich culture over 10,000 years because we did not fight for peace and territory.
In 2020, JOMON's textiles produced by his ELNEST, who has created various graphics with the motif of the Jomon period, are the pieces of earthenware that the Jomon people's spirituality can be most felt. The collage strongly expresses the memory of Jomon and the swell of the beauty of modeling.
The Hauser II outsole and midsole are colored with obsidian, which was used as a tool, and jade, which was cherished as a special ornament, so that you can immerse yourself in the world of Jomon. I am.
What can we, who live in the present, receive from the Jomon culture, what can we do in the present age, and what can we connect to the future?
I made it with the aim of creating a unique shoe that homages the message that speaks to the imagination and the Jomon world.
