Brand director Satoshi Saffen creates the Nonnative Dweller Sneakers exclusively from Japan.

Based on a high-top sneaker, these fly kicks are made of monkey-suede cow skin. With a look of luxury, these shoes are adorned in beige fur, making them look ultra classy. What's really neat about these Nonnative Dweller Sneakers is the fact that they're completely waterproof and lined with Gore-Tex leather, making them a fresh and practical pair of kicks.

Implications - Consumers are no longer satisfied with items that simply complete a function. Designs that feature a whimsical element are appealing to those who want to stand out from the rest of the crowd. Companies could focus on this when coming out with new items.
