Since 1873, Moonstar company has been producing minimal and functional footwear in Kurume, Japan. Kurume first prospered in the rubber industry manufacturing tires and Jika-Tabi shoes, a rubber-soled work boots with a split toe. Each pair of Moonstar are cut and sew by hand. When they are fully assembled the next stage of the process is called “vulcanisation” or “ka-ryu” in Japanese. At Moonstar they often say “shoes like pottery” because each pair of shoes is fired just like ceramics in a oven during one hour in order to merge the sole with the upper of the shoe.
