The New Hill-Side x Kaptain Sunshine Sneakers

View all 7 Photos

Unlike other designs, the new Bridge Mid, Three Olive Drab Fabrics, Kaptain Sunshine Special Edition sneaker takes inspiration from an unlikely source to bring a new look to modern footwear. The 1970s “Delta Shoe” was used by the US military as non-combat footwear in wet and humid conditions, and it was even used for wading in shallow water. This new model is the result of a creative collaboration between The Hill-Side and Kaptain Sunshine.

A sturdy construction and a practical mid height hint at the original’s functional design, along with the natural, camouflage-inspired olive green and black palette. Laceless for more convenience and for a touch of contemporary style, the sneaker features a velcro strap closure and three types of Olive Drab cotton fabric: ripstop, herringbone twill, and back satin. The black rubber sole has a herringbone pattern and comes with a molded logo added on the heel plate. Sturdy features include a twill tape binding at the tongue, a canvas-backed foxing tape, and a vulcanized construction. Made in Japan using ethical manufacturing processes, the sneaker is handmade and hand sewn in one of the oldest sneaker factories in the world. You can order this limited-edition Bridge Mid from the company’s website, where you will also find a lighter version in a natural duck canvas color, perfect for spring and summer.
