Designed and developed from scratch by Anachronorm's Designer and Founder, Tanushi Tomoki, the PRAS (Paradise Rubber Athletic Shoes) footwear line sets a fresh benchmark for Made in Japan vulcanized sole sneakers. With only factory in Japan, capable of producing vulcanized soles – a style of robust sole that was once used for navy sailors during times of war – these shoes are exceptionally rare.
This type of heavy-duty sole offers enhanced traction on slippery ship platforms, enabling versatile movement in various weather conditions. The combination of a strong sole-upper bond, difficult-to-peel sole, and enduring form is achieved through the vulcanization process. The factory, boasting a history of nearly 150 years, is committed to safeguarding the "vulcanization method" and continuing to share its high-quality products with the world.
