“Marshmallow that never melts”

Pleats Please Issey Miyake and Native Shoes create a shoe that's lightweight, odour-resistant, washable – and completely free from animal-derived materials.

On our minds is Pleats Please by Issey Miyake and the Japanese label’s recurring collaboration with Canadian Native Shoes. The SS16 range of sneakers is a result of technological experimentation comprised of ethylene-vinyl acetate, described by Native as “marshmallow that never melts”, and takes the shape of classic moccasin-style sneakers based on the brand’s “Apollo Moc” silhouette. The end result is lightweight, odour-resistant and washable footwear completely free from any animal-derived materials. We love to see the two brands’ continued bonding over their mutual flair for technology and stripped-down aesthetics as well as the progressive utilitarian features of the shoes.
