Lace-up boots made from a collaborative project between ADIEU, the Parisian unisex shoe brand established in 2012, and A&S will be available from Saturday September 1st 2018 at 3 stores: &SHOP Aoyama, &SHOP Kyoto and A&S Marunouchi.

Over these years, A&S has twice presented special pairs as part of our collection where we asked ADIEU to create exclusive pieces using colors and materials which were selected by A&S. The new collaboration takes a completely different approach. The creative process of the lace-up boots took nearly 2 years.

The main focus of our project was concentrated on the wooden last. Numerous modifications were made to fit the Japanese foot which resulted in creating the one-and-only last for this model. Unlike the tough and sturdy look of classic ADIEU shoes, we came up with a sleek and extraordinary silhouette. The upper is entirely made from a single sheet of leather. Instead of using polished leather which is used in ADIEU’s standard collection, we used a soft and sheer leather from the French tanning studio DU PUY.

After many various trials and errors in order to create the perfect upper curve, we successfully combined the ADIEU’s famous natural crepe sole and finally united the essence of ADIEU and A&S in this light yet well-balanced pair.

Please come and try them at our stores.

  • ADIEU’s iconic crepe sole which provides comfort to the wearer with its lightness and cushioning effect.
  • The combination of the thick sole and the simple design of the upper gives this model a classic yet modern allure which sets itself apart from previous models.
  • To make full use of the soft and sheer leather, we minimalized the use of stitches to create a clean-cut look.
  • The playful design of ADIEU shoes with “ARTS&SCIENCE” embossing.
  • Lace-up boots will be available in 6 sizes (whole and half sizes) for both men and women.
