Hender Scheme is the Tokyo-based footwear and accessories brand founded and designed by Ryo Kashiwazaki. It’s Manual Industrial Products (MIP) series has garnered a cult following around the globe for its striking iterations of iconic footwear silhouettes. By rendering each pair in the highest-quality, vegetable-tanned leathers and exposing the complexity (or simplicity) of the designs through visible, handmade construction techniques, Kashiwazaki and his team offer a new way to appreciate and elevate designs more often associated with ‘the street’. Collaborating for the first time in 2017, the relationship with adidas has given Kashiwazaki unparalleled insight into the sportswear brand’s design heritage. Each new collection together is an evolution, one that sees Kashiwazaki pushing his materials and craft to the limits.
The FW18 release is built around an adidas running shoe with technical details and functionality that pushed Kashiwazaki and his team to develop new ways of working. Drawing on the seminal ZX line, which began life in the 1980s and changed the course of running shoe history, there was a desire to not only create a beautiful lifestyle product but also stay true to the ideals behind the original models. When creating the new Hender Scheme iterations, Kashiwazaki says that he “wanted to give more of a true sports feeling” in celebration of the ZX line’s heritage. “Achieving a certain level of performance – how will it perform in high temperatures or humidity, for example – while also staying true to our artisanal materials and methods presented a unique challenge.
