Yes, it looks like an Adidas shoe – give or take a stripe – but this classic look was actually produced for the Soviet Special Forces in the 1980s.
In time, it fell into military surplus sales and into the hands of the civilian market.
Reproduction Of Found started up in Japan in 2016 with a mission to reproduce classic military footwear from the 1950s onwards, all made with a keen attention to detail.
Now, the company has got round to remaking the Mockba.
Every pair is handmade with great care and detail and complete with the model name, manufacturing country and age of the original model printed inside the sole.
In the case of this one, it has been ‘reimagined’ in the “finest Italian leather” according to the write up – even though it looks more like suede.
That aside, these shoes are all about authenticity, with modern techniques used, but keeping an authentic vintage look and feel to the end product.
