Every season Ryo Kashiwasaki of Hender Scheme adds a new style to his Manual Industrial Products line. In the past he's typically paid tribute to familiar sneaker silhouettes that we've all grown to love. This time around he's flipped the script with the MIP 14, borrowing design cues from a 6" Timberland boot. Synonymous with their MIP line, Hender Scheme pays homage to the infamous boot with the addition of a premium natural cowhide upper that is meant to patina and age over time. They've also added replaceable leather outsole with rubber heel for extra grip. Considering the origins of this style comes from work wear, it'll be interesting to see how a well aged and beat up pair of these will look over time. After this welcomed surprise, I'm also looking forward to how Ryo evolves his MIP products in the future and what style he plans to unveil next. The MIP 14 along with other new arrivals from Hender Scheme are now available online at HAVEN.
