Hender Scheme never officially announces which sneaker has influenced its Manual Industrial Products line, but for Spring/Summer 2023 the references are crystal clear, delivering its take on a style that’s very close to the New Balance 991. And while this is the star of the show this season, the Japanese footwear pioneer has plenty more styles up its sleeve, serving up a bevy of premium leather classics, newcomers, and even some bags and homeware pieces.
For the MIP shoe that’s definitely not a 991, Hender Scheme uses its naturally tanned leather to construct a sneaker comprising various undulating, overlapping, and curvaceous panels. Padding is found in abundance on the interior, while the sole unit keeps up with the natural leather theme.
As for the rest of the SS23 drop, Ryo Kashiwazaki designs sandals trimmed in leather and leopard print faux fur, a variety of sandals, pointed strap mules and a standout pair of embroidered mules, as well as formal shoes in white. Alongside this, you’ll find accessories such as wallets on key chains and accompanying charms, net bags, and larger carrying options decorated with Western leather fringing. Vases and a tool pouch round things off.
Hender Scheme SS23 drops on December 3 online and at the brand’s Sukima store, as well as at retailers across Japan. A wider release around the globe will come later on in December. Take a closer look at everything above.
