Japanese apparel brand UNITED ARROWS & SONS have appointed GREATS as its newest collaborative partner. Fusing both Japanese and Italian aesthetics, these slip-on sneakers are cross-cultural and stylish.

It is GREAT's popular Wooster slip-on silhouette that is granted the mashup makeover. The sneaker is given a sense of Japanese style with the use of traditional Sashiko fabric, which decorates the toe box and pull tab. This fabric is contrasted with luxe Italian vegetable-tanned leather that coats the rest of the upper. The sneakers are finished with a vachetta leather inner lining and branding that displays logos from both GREATS and UNITED ARROWS & SONS.

Sneaker enthusiasts can expect to see these shoes on the GREATS website on December 10th, 2015.
