These high-top shoes are produced by MoonStar, a footwear manufacturer with a history dating to 1873 when Kurume City, Fukuoka Prefecture developed a thriving rubber industry associated with the production of jika-tabi (a split-toe shoe with a rubber sole). Each shoe is assembled by hand and undergoes a vulcanization process which involves the shoes being baked in a kiln. This specialist technique leads to a soft and flexible sole with increased durability, which helps maintain its well-formed silhouette.
The hand-stitched, canvas upper of the Alweather RF model is protected by an extended rubber mudguard that is designed to withstand rainy, muddy, and snowy conditions. Representing a further development of the original Alweather model, the Alweather RF features a number of improvements, including a pull tab on the heel, a redesign of the lacing system to accommodate different sizing requirements, and adjusted placement of the overlapping rubber seams to avoid discomfort.
Alweather RF is also available in black and olive.

Soak in water or lukewarm water.
Wash with a shoe detergent or mild detergent, and brush off heavily soiled areas.
Rinse thoroughly.
After washing, shape the shoes with newspaper and dry in a well-ventilated shade.
