Moonstar

Jikatabi - White

£123.00

Nepenthes London Online Store is proud to introduce a limited-time pop up with Japanese footwear brand Moonstar. Moonstar was founded in 1873 and later became the first in Japan to produce footwear using a vulcanising treatment, or Ka-ryu process which only a small number of manufacturers continue to use today. Each shoe once put together by hand is fired in a kiln which causes the sulphur mixed inside the raw rubber to chemically react, returning the rubber to its natural elasticity and creating a soft, flexible, and durable sole.

Jikatabi was born in Kurume. It has been a Japanese traditional shoe for more than 100 years. This model is based on shoes which are worn for traditional festivals in Japan.  

Made in Japan

Available until October 4, 2019.
