It's time to meet your new favourite footwear brand, Flower MOUNTAIN.
Inspired by the cycles of the seasons, in time with the rhythms of the natural world, these sneakers mix patterns, intricate detailing and next level craftsmanship to create beautiful, yet functional footwear for men, women, and everyone else.
How did Flower MOUNTAIN begin?
When Yang Chao, one of China's most famous creatives, met Keisuke Ota, a self-taught shoe designer, they quickly discovered that they shared a passion for music, mountain-trekking and, most importantly, footwear.
Their friendship blossomed, and after a trip to the Mount Fuji Rock Festival, the idea to create a functional yet aesthetically pleasing shoe was born.
The pair got to work right away, combining advanced technical know-how with unique designs inspired by Japanese flora and fauna.
The result? The most beautiful AND practical shoes in the land, worn and loved by outdoorsy folk across the globe.
Meet the trainers
We stock styles from the Yamano and Kotestu collections.
Made from high-quality technical fabrics, rubber and suede, these trainers are built to last and endure all manner of outdoor activities.
They're a comfortable, lightweight shoe with strong grippy soles and natural leather linings for extra durability.
Plus, each trainer has a cork insole which they treat with a natural compound called Agion to help keep bacteria at bay and prevent the formation of mould.
We love their unique colour ways, fabric combinations, organic-looking details and quirky features, and think they're an absolute footwear must-have for the outdoorsy-yet-sartorially inclined amongst us.
