For the past 18 months, the NewMake project has collaborated with around 900 artists, designers and patternmakers to upcycle products at its lab in Harajuku. This spring, you’ll get to see some of the works at Tokyu Plaza Shibuya.
The exhibition, which runs from March 22 to 28, showcases 100 pairs of upcycled footwear. The shoes were donated by well-known brands including Adidas, Asics, All Birds, Under Armour, New Balance, Puma and Teva. The shoes were repurposed, redesigned or upcycled by various creators to raise awareness on environmental issues.
You're encouraged to vote for your favourite sneakers on the NewMake Instagram account (until March 26). The pair with the most likes will win the crown of '100 Sneakers 100 New Makers 2023'.
