Director Takayuki Minami reconstructs items from around the world from his own perspective and creates new products as the brand “Fresh Service”. They have created  collaboration models with two brands of a similar mindset that perfectly blends the concepts of fashion and lifestyle.

Retro hiking shoes with a rugged color scheme.

HI-TEC was born in England in 1974 with its roots in squash shoes. Fresh Service’s collaboration is based on the hiking shoes “EASTEND” and is made with fine suede and nubuck.

Hi-TEC×FreshService “EASTEND WP” ¥15400

By using the tough materials mentioned above, the design is reminiscent of military training shoes. The lightweight sole has excellent cushioning creating a solid impression, and the moisture-permeable and waterproof membrane allows you to use them regardless of the weather.

 

A collaboration with the local industry of Ichinomiya, Aichi Prefecture, the mecca of Japanese textiles.

Mr Minami’s collaborative brand ‘Loomer’, is based in Ichinomiya City, and collaborates with weavers with over 50 years of experience and heritage. The items released here as a capsule collection focus on outstanding textile technology.

Archive models from The Fresh Service back catalog have been re-released using a densely woven fabric of cotton and French linen.
