Not all canvas sneakers are created equal. These Shoes Like Pottery Low Top Vulcanized Sneakers are not only sewn and assembled entirely by hand in Japan, they’re also put through a highly specialized and meticulous rubber vulcanizing process called ka-ryu, which basically involves firing the shoes in a kiln the same way you would pottery (hence their name). The result is a canvas sneaker you won’t have to re-up every season. Definitely worth the $155 investment.
