The Junya Watanabe 'Steer Strunk' shoe is not just a new design, but an entirely new style. What makes this shoe different from others is the side closure and the pebble-textured tan leather. Having the lace on the side of the shoe makes it so that the textured leather can spread across the front of the kick uninterrupted.

The Junya Watanabe Steer Strunk shoe is supported by a thick and chunky sole. Contrast stitching brings together the various elements of the shoe.

This design is endearing because of its outside-of-the-box thinking, but one also gets the impression that this shoe could become a classic style redesigned into infinite forms. Made in Japan, these inventive shoes are available online now.
