Mihara Yasuhiro is one of the most important footwear designers that you’ve probably never heard of. Since his eponymous label launched in ’97, Yasuhiro has collaborated with everyone from PUMA to Moncler, yet he remains an under-the-radar name in fashion.
Yasuhiro’s latest drop is built from a number of footwear cult-classics, which have been given new lease life for the upcoming season. Using iconic silhouettes as the foundation, he molds a new, unmistakable sole unit to render the styles his own, making the familiar silhouettes seem almost otherworldly.
In honor of one of the footwear world’s most underrated designers, we’ve rounded up our top picks from Miharayasuhiro Fall/Winter 2020.
If you were to recreate a pair of lightweight runners using play-doh, it might end up looking something like this pair of Overdyed sneakers from Miharayasuhiro. A characteristically exaggerated sole unit complements oversized laces for a cartoon-like finish.
Tie-dyed canvas uppers offer a decidedly fall-ready palette for this iteration of Miharayasuhiro’s flagship footwear style.
Taking design inspiration from Converse’s timeless Chuck Taylor silhouette, the OG Sole High-Top Sneaker adds an eye-catching, unorthodox punch to your fall wardrobe.
Swap out the tie-dye uppers for something with more vintage appeal — a classic blue canvas upper gives this pair retro energy.
As if the clay-look sole unit wasn’t enough to demarcate the label’s shoes, the new season sees Mihara dip soles in semi-transparent black gum.
The same design as the black dipped-sole sneakers, this pair boasts a beige color palette which will help when it comes to styling other colors.
Contrast stitching throughout gives this pair of high-top canvas sneakers an eye-catching twist, and wearing Yasuhiro is certainly something to be proud of.
