Shoes Like Pottery - High Sneaker - Black
Shoes Like Pottery, made in the same factory as Moonstar, is done slow and steady - like the process of hand throwing, glazing, and firing pottery. The kiln they use to vulcanize the rubber is very similar in nature to the one used in the process of ceramics. The foxing surrounding the shoe even reminds us of some patterns we’ve seen in our favorite potters' clay-work. These were intentional. The name means what it says. A slow process of stitching, wrapping, molding, and firing gives these shoes a foundation you’ll be able to stand on for a long time. The beauty in the aesthetics of the shoes means more in that way, at least to us. Voting with your dollars is the perfect intersection of sensory pleasure and storytelling. The two waves flow through the universe in parallel only crossing paths on rare occasions. We specialize in curating those occasions, and so does Shoes Like Pottery.

Fit Notes: So here's the skinny. People get very confused about sizing, and the best way we know to remedy that is by comparing them to other shoes. These shoes are known to run pretty true. You can size down but you'll most likely feel the squeeze of the rubber toe cap if you do. Take your typical Converse Chuck 70 and stick with that. If you land in between at an 8.5, take the next size up to a 9. Shop owner Tommy is wearing very low profile socks with size 8's in the picture. *He is typically an 8.5 in Converse. In Red Wing, he wears an 8 in almost every last.* Without an additional orthotic insole, he can wear a size 8 from SLP, but with an insole and thicker socks, he would have to size up to a 9. So, essentially if you were to take these shoes out of the box, and slip them on with no sock and no insert, you're going to go with your true Red Wing boot size which may mean sizing down if you're an in-betweener. If you plan to wear your Chups or thick wool socks with these, you'll be able to size up! That's the best we've got on these and we hope it helps. Reach out with any questions.
