The Alweather boots by Moonstar features a rubber covering on a large portion of the upper sole with beautiful canvas fabric on top. So if you’re looking for sneaker style shoes, but you’re tired of getting your shoes getting soaked in every rain storm - look no further.

Variation:
Slight variations due to parts being hand sewn and assembled.

History: 
Founded in 1873 in Kurume, Moonstar had its start manufacturing Japanese tabi – the split-toe shoe with flexible sole that gives its wearer balance and agility. Today Moonstar is a pioneer in shoe manufacturing, leading the way for vulcanized rubber shoes, where raw rubber soles are baked in kilns like pottery. Raw rubber when applied with extreme heat will chemically react with sulfate, returning the rubber to its natural elasticity, creating a soft, flexible, durable sole. In addition to these high tech methods, Moonstar takes great care in designing attractive and timeless shoe-ware that can be worn by men, women and children alike.  Using beautiful fabric that is hand-sewn and hand-applied by skilled craftsman in Kurume, each shoe goes through several stages of production where the application of each piece is done carefully in ways that only few manufacturers in the world are able to do.
