The Chuck Taylor All Star serves as a perfect muse for Tenue de Nîmes. With deep roots in style and culture, both the shoe and indigo denim have led somewhat parallel lives. Chucks and a pair of jeans have long been a staple of youth culture and music and have served as a symbol of independence for decades. Fittingly, Tenue de Nîmes asked legendary denim experts, the Manabe family from Okoyama in Japan – owners of the Momotaro brand and Rampuya dyeing factory – if they would be able to indigo-dye a limited amount of 50 pairs. Mr. Manabe agreed, and kindly provided 50 pairs of stunning hand-numbered shoes, dyed in natural indigo. Because of the irregular composition of natural indigo, the shoes all have a different signature. Each is unique thanks to the traditional craft of hand-dyeing and the use of natural ingredients throughout the process. The shoes are offered in a Ramupya natural cotton bag and are exclusively available at Tenue de Nîmes in Amsterdam for €90 EUR (approximately $126 USD). During an event on July 15, Tenue de Nîmes will officially present the limited collection, along with an exhibit on the Japanese dyeing process.
