Although fire and footwear wouldn't seem like appropriate bedfellows, Shoes Like Pottery are fired at high temperatures to make the rubber experience a molecular reaction. Hand-sewn and completely assembled by hand, the Shoes Like Pottery are placed in a kiln for about 70 minutes at 248 degrees in order to obtain a certain patina that renders the shoe not only a lovely shade, but also extremely flexible and ready for everyday life.

Natural rubber is used as the main material for constructing the shoes and are being marketed as extremely durable because of the unique production process. Running at just over $150, the Shoes Like Pottery are available in the single color, straight from Japan and are sure to be the most bragging-worthy pair in your closet.
