visvim 01 visvim Christo   Mayan

Japanese retailer CHAPTER WORLD just recieved the 2nd batch of visvim’s Spring/Summer 2008 collection, including the Christo Mayan shown above.  Composed of premium leather footbed on EVA midsole and black rubber outsole, visvim creative director Hiroki Nakamura (中村ヒロキ) designed it with Japan’s humid Summer months in mind.  When it came to unique detailing, of which visvim is known for.  Nakamura enlisted the assistance from an unlike source – tribes from Guatemala, who still retained the knowledge of their Mayan ancestors.  Hence, the unique, hand weaved straps that adorned the upper.  Retails for JP¥ 25,200 (US$ 236), this very limited merchandise is only available through pre-order with CHAPTER WORLD.
