Native Shoes stays true to its motto of creating “Future Classics” through combining timeless silhouettes and super-light, breathable materials dyed with a technique inspired by the age-old Japanese Shibori method for the special release of their Apollo Hand Dyed limited collection. The staying power of the process may be due to its simplicity. As seen in the photos, the microfiber material of the Apollo upper is rolled up into a cylinder, bound with a string, soaked in a tub of dye, then left to dry.

The Apollo Hand Dyed collection launches at select retailers including the HYPEBEAST StoreKith, Kicks Sole Provider, Livestock, and Starcow on November 1 and WOAW Store on November 3.
