Handcrafted, modern sneakers marry culture and fashion

The Xesole PROJECT incorporates Japanese culture with modern technology to bring to the world the art of traditional Tokyo style of shoe making. High-quality, traditional costumes with beautiful images expressing Japanese flowers and birds – that’s the kimono. An original Japanese production, technology-backed day-to-day efforts, and real shoemaker CRAFTSMANSHIP.

The “Xesole ~ KIMONO Sneaker” was born and created by merging Japan’s proud traditions with the ever-evolving modern times.

Kimono`s are made of pure silk making the material very durable as a shoe providing exceptional balance, protection, and support. The cultural style of the kimono and material use is expanding in multiple ways, such as face and hand towels, diapers, handkerchief, and other various designs. It is the “must-have” spirit that has been in Japan since ancient times, which has naturally captured and holds a sustainable coexistence with nature.

Handcrafted sneakers preserve culture and values

The era of mass industrial production and mass consumption has had an immense effect on the quality and the way we value products.

Xesole revives traditional Japanese crafts with contemporary design and craftsmanship of the next generation, linking Japanese culture with the reshaping of fashion in the 21st century.

We consider the “Xesole ~ KIMONO Sneaker” as a gem that, through traditional Japanese culture and values, will enrich the lives of all people.

A marketing concept known as “Cool (Japan)” has been adopted by the Japanese government and trade commission, which exploits it as a significant standard that requires global compliance with the development goals of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, and there is no other material more suitable than the Kimono.
