The World is Yours, a Japanese brand known for its luxury bags, released a pair of handcrafted paisley sneakers called Dac Japonica. The unique sneakers feature the well-known paisley bandana pattern over the sides and front of the Stan Smith lookalike shoes. The Dac Japonica sneakers are carefully crafted with high-quality materials that convey a comfortable, cultured look.
The side panels of the shoes can be torn away–whether by the wearer's wish or through natural wear and tear–to reveal shunga graphics beneath. Shunga art, often painted or woodcut, is erotic in nature and dates back to Japan's Edo period. The World is Yours highlights the tension between societal expectation and personal expression through the detailed but tasteful graphics, all within a stylish sneaker. The trendy shoe might appeal to creatives who are looking to make a statement.
