For their 10th anniversary, Japanese brand FDMTL celebrates in a collaboration with the Californian sneaker brand Vans. With a take on the traditional Japanese patchwork production aesthetic, they presented Vans’ Slip-On and Era models with different kinds Okayama-sourced indigo blue fabrics and embellished them with contrasting yet subtle yarn and embroideries.
One desirable feature from these sneakers is the fact that the indigo coloring will wear off over time and they will gain their unique characteristic. A nice touch is also added with the custom tags and insoles that features FDMTL branding. Come in boxes specifically designed for the project, these shoes are currently available for pre-order within Japan with delivery expected around Spring 2016.
