Nigel Cabourn and Maison Mihara Yasuhiro have joined forces for another shoe collection. The third collaboration from the two entities was inspired by the Swiss army rucksack, which is one of Cabourn’s favorite archival pieces.

The rucksack was originally used by the Swiss Army and was later utilized by ex-soldiers and mountaineers because of its comfort. Its characteristic heavy-duty canvas was created by blending cotton yarn with twisted stinging nettle fibers, offering a distinct black and white camouflage texture.

For the collection, Maison Mihara Yasuhiro recreated the blended heavy-duty canvas in Japan with an updated technique that used only 100 percent cotton. The Swiss green runner features a tonal color palette with a dark rippled midsole and was designed using a hand-shaped clay mold. The design is then complimented by suede which utilized the black and white camouflage texture. Additionally, the runners feature oversized laces, which were inspired by the cotton herringbone details on the inside of the Swiss army rucksack.

The second pair features a red-clay color palette, which was inspired by the tan leather base and strapping details on the rucksack. The runner also features a white rippled midsole with a touch of signature Cabourn orange. A tan rough suede base, the black and white camouflage texture and the oversized natural-colored laces complete the shoe.

Retailing for $364 USD, the collaborative runners are available now on Nigel Cabourn’s website.
