CLAE x BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS collaboration model released Sneakers made from upcycled leftover fabric are available in unisex sizes.
LA-based shoe brand “CLAE” developed by Regal Corporation (Head office: Urayasu City, Chiba Prefecture, President: Naoto Yasuda) is a unisex sneaker in collaboration with Japanese apparel brand BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS. will be on sale at some stores including online shops from Saturday, November 19th.
CLAE launched a brand in Los Angeles in 2001. We have been inspired by L.A. culture for over 20 years. Based in L.A., which continues to lead and influence the world’s street culture, we are currently expressing the brand based on the concept of “Minimalism, Quality & Comfort”. “BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS” is a brand launched by director Masashi Watanabe, who has experienced scenes not only in Japan but also in the world. Based on the 90s street culture from Tokyo, we incorporated cultures and styles from around the world and created a new trend. Not only did they all have the same street culture as their backbone, but they also had a strong sympathy for CLAE’s environmental philosophy.
From 11/19 (Saturday), a special collaboration model will be released at some stores, including the official online shop, from both of them, who have both started on the street.
The base is a simple coat sneaker that is also an icon model of CLAE. The upper is upcycled into a new shape using leftover fabric from the production of BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS apparel. The technique of putting together like a patchwork to create an upper is one of the most difficult techniques CLAE has been collaborating with since its founding.
The sole, which is slightly thicker than the previous model, contains recycled rubber chips linked to the color of the upper.
A special pair of shoes completed with sustainable ideas and passion for shoe making.

[BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS]
Started in 2004 Fall/Winter by Director Masashi Watanabe.
Various cultures and styles that I have experienced while traveling around the world like nomads. And always mix opposites. Major and indie, formal street, ethnic dress and three-piece. By doing so, while reconstructing the simple American traditional with the details of the things that have been touched, it expresses the defect that you want to keep in a clean and unique way.
Each season’s collection is based on this Bedouin basic world view, and the fictitious backing band “Heartbreakers” is created by “sounding” the essence of the albums and songs they have listened to and influenced by the theme of the season. I’m here.
