Hender Scheme Colour Exception Loafers


What is Democratic Pricing?

Our procurement isn’t perfect, but our mission is to act as a launchpad for the most creative and meticulous work in the world. Rather than labelling work as ‘last season' and stipulating huge discounts on unique creations based on abstract calendar rules, instead we’ve created a system called Democratic Pricing - where we invite you to choose from three discounts on a selection of items in our range.  Every piece is new and untouched. For more information about Democratic Pricing, click here.


Hender Scheme’s newest release is an experiment in colour psychology and the power of the mind’s eye. “The new line is aimed at reminding one of memories and information that colour gives us by combining a typical colour scheme ,which is well known by the public, with the standard style of classic leather shoes,” says Hender Scheme founder Ryo Kashiwazaki. Ryo has taken colours that instantly provoke a famous brand, a jewellery house for example, or American courier company, and applied them to a classic shoe silhouette. Two such ordinary parts, Ryo argues, might create something special: what he calls an ‘exception’. “It’s a free ride on one’s experience and imagination,” he says. Available in very limited numbers.
