The Manifesto takes from the 1980s Deconstructivism movement, which The Salvages explains “is characterised by fragmentation, asymmetry and controlled chaos.” The sneaker is crafted by hand, marrying unlikely materials together: elk, calfskin, suede, full grain leather, knit and mesh. And testifies to keeping it both 100 and comfort, with a ventilated construction that sports an asymmetrical Vibram outsole alongside pigment-free leather and orthopaedic insoles.
Helmed by Singapore-based Earn Chen and Nicolette Yip, The Salvages is an archival fashion e-commerce platform and its own fully fledged label, with a track record of grailed and sold out releases.
The Manifesto “Midnight Black” will be releasing on August 31, via select retailers Dover Street Market Ginza, Slamjam, Tres Bien, Matches, ToKION the store, Cherry Fukuoka, Nubian Tokyo and Boon The Shop. For more from the brand, visit The Salvages official website.
