This is a high cut shoe with artwork on its entire surface drawn by Toshikazu Nozaka, who is a Japanese painter, tattoo artist and skateboarder.
'Foot Plant', the base of this model, uses special material on part of
its upper portion, which extends above the ankle and bundles the ankle to guard it. As the shoe is constructed to hold the instep of the foot, even if the shoe is not laced to the top the foot won't move about in the shoe. Eyelets on its right and left, spaced like the shape of a football, allows a three dimensional fit of the instep of the foot.
Without any stress, this high cut shoe allows the ankle to be moved.
