Designed and developed from the ground up by Anachronorm Designer and Founder, Tanushi Tomoki, the PRAS (Paradise Rubber Athletic Shoes) line of footwear marks a new standard in Made in Japan Vulcanized-sole sneakers. With only two factories left in all of Japan still able to churn out Vulcanized soles, and no factory in North America, PRAS are special to say the least.
PRAS is manufactured in the same way as those produced for navy sailors in times of war. The vulcanized sole gave them extra propulsion on the slippery platforms of the ships, allowing for versatile movements in any weather condition.
The factory, which is nearly 150 years old, will continue to protect the 'vulcanization method' of producing quality goods to share with the rest of the world.
