Despite the slow down of its economy in recent years, Japan still retains the title as the 2nd largest retail market in the world.  And to satisfy its consumer’s strive for uniqueness in this massive market, retailers in Japan have continue to introduce obscure labels into the marketplace.  One such is TOPPER, an athletic apparel and footwear brand found mainly in South America.

To inaugural its casual footwear collection release in Japan, TOPPER created a special collection with Japanese graphic designer Jun Watanabe.  Featuring 2 popular TOPPER models: Pro 2000 High & Slip-On.  Each is much like other casual footwear, canvas uppers with rubber/leather piping, with 3 exceptions – natural gum sole, Brazilian flag markings, and a silk-screened Jun Watanabe custom graphic.

Because each is hand printed, only 20 units  of the Pro 2000 High model and 30 units of the Slip-On (10 each of the 3 colorways) will be available.  Exclusively at FLAUGE of ZOZO shopping network.
