Nigel Cabourn’s ongoing collaboration with cult Japanese designer Mihara Yasuhiro continues. The Mihara Running Trainer is a unique take on classic running trainers. Combining the stripped–back shape of a vintage running shoe with traditional shoe–making techniques seldom seen in the sportswear world.This season, the runners take inspiration from the iconic Swiss Army rucksack.
The Rough Tan colourway takes key design details from the heavy leather base and strapping details found on the original Army bag. The premium tan suede and army green panelling complements the Japanese made ‘salt and pepper’ camouflage canvas. The oversized laces nod to the cotton herringbone details found within the interior of the original military rucksack.Further details include the iconic Mihara “ripple” sole in contrasting white and signature Cabourn orange. The unique melted appearance is achieved through the use of traditional hand made clay mould.
