These are p. nice, japanese label called Doek, apparently made in the same factory, or at least region, as Shoes like Pottery. Would love to grab a pair in all-black

 

 

Manufactured in Kurume, Japan, Doek creates high quality canvas sneakers from locally crafted canvas produced in the same manner as kasuri fabrics, often used for kimonos.

Curious what makes those worth going through the hassle to get rather than just getting a pair of very similar looking Eytys? Are you more so a fan of the manuf. process and different(?) materials used?

No purple heel tab, lower profile sole, made in Japan and not Vietnam, and yet more than $50 (about $70 at this point in time) less than Eytys.

I'm sure they'll do a black monochrome eventually, Shoes like Pottery have already done an all-black for their low-top

Hm, I was assuming a higher price tag. Reasonable points- they do look quite nice.

anyone know where i can readily buy some solid black suede eras or authentics WITHOUT the foxing stripe?  

(i've looked around, and i could only find suede 'authentic slims' -- which has the low sole, NOT what i'm looking for)

 

here's an example... (from nitty gritty store)

Had a craving for this model as well, spent some time digging. The model number is VN-0YS7EMI. Just an FYI, the sole is actually not white, and is off-white. Mostly, if not only in Japan right now. My guess is that they'll drop stateside in the next 3-4 months... Here's some on sale, not sure if they ship intl

Does anybody know if it's possible to get a replacement for the red heel tabs? One of mine is lost for some reason.

Update, got antsy and proxied them. The vintage authentic drop this season didn't seem to include black so erring on the side of caution I pulled the trigger.

I contacted Vans about those and they told me that they're exclusive to the Asian market. Don't know if they'll ever come stateside without a proxy. :(

i picked up a pair of khaki vintage authenics at the vans outlet in delaware last summer. the laces are narrower and feel nicer not that its a big deal.
