Nothing lasts forever. The Japanese aesthetic honors this by appreciating the imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. This is the same ethos BrandBlack has bought to its Aura Wabi Sabi sneaker. It's a technical standout, with a Vibram-designed running midsole with Rolling Gait technology, a high-traction rubber outsole, a supportive internal shank, an internal sock collar for cushioning, and full-grain Nappa leather and Nubuck overlays. Yet despite its premium build, it undergoes a special washing technique to give it a worn, almost acid-washed look, making each pair unique and capable of pairing with anything from distressed jeans to fine chinos.
SIZING NOTE: Aura Wabi Sabi fits smaller than normal due to wash — size up a half size for shrinkage — and please note interior sock construction will fit like a sock.
