Cult Japanese fashion label Needles introduces a new iteration of its signature Ghillie shoes and it features paint splattering designs. The silhouette was originally created by Japanese designer Keizo Shimizu and it boasts some Americana design influences, especially its vintage cues.

The sneakers are constructed from canvas materials to give it a lightweight element, accented with multi textiles in a low-cut shape. The standout purple and navy blue colorway is accompanied by contrasting white paint splattering designs throughout the entire model. It is rounded out with a rubber toe cap and a matching tonal lacing system. The midsole is made from rubber and is light pink with branding accents in the form of an embossed logo over the heel. It is also accented with treaded rubber at the outsoles in burgundy hues and rounded out with silver hardware.
