Designers from NEIGHBORHOOD, THE FOURNESS, and Grenson Reunite Under '4' Brand
Two Japanese designers. One British footwear brand. Four shoes.
Japanese creatives Shinsuke Takizawa and Kazuki Kuraishi, of NEIGHBORHOOD and THE FOURNESS respectively, have tapped Tim Little, of British heritage label Grenson for another round of collaborative footwear. The trio have linked up before, and the new collection looks to further the concepts established by the initial release as ‘4.’
Keeping in line with the name of the project, the designers have produced four distinct shoes all offering a new twist on a classic British model; the Four derby, the Patru boot, the hiking boot-style Kvar, and the Tessera moccasin. Each is handmade in Grenson’s Northamptonshire factory and feature elastic gussets and either leather or XL Extralight soles. 4’s new footwear selection is releasing October 5.
