Shortly after unveiling its Dr. Martens collaboration under its PURPLE LABEL division, The North Face Japan is back, this time with a new footwear drop of its own — the Nupsi Traction Light Mock IV. The silhouette is a slip-on that’s been equipped with a water-repellent nylon shell and thermal padding.
Coming in bold colorways of purple, black, red, white and yellow, the sneakers come with quilted uppers and adjustable drawstrings that help seal in the heat and keep your toes warm — thanks to its Thermolite® Eco-Made insulation. The sneakers come with elastic collars, complemented by pull tabs along the forefoot and heel for easy accessibility. Just below are swatches of reinforced ripstop fabric at the heel and sidewalls, while horizontal stitching appears at the forefoot. The mudguards and toe cap come in a rugged canvas layer, followed below by an articulated midsole that’s been ergonomically enhanced for extra grip and traction.
The North Face Japan Nupsi Traction Light Mock IV is currently available at goldwin.co.jp for $126 USD.
