Hurry up at the Bobo Gallery if you want to have yours before everyone else!

Shan Dongs («East of the mountains » in Mandarin) are original chinese sneakers created a few years after «The Peoples’ Republic of China». Originally made for schools and universities, Shan Dongs became very popular throughout all social classes for sports and leisure. In the last decade however the unique Shan Dong model, which existed for more than 50 years, was slowly forgotten.

In 2006, Olivier Kervern an independant photographer, stays for month in China for a photographic journey. During this trip, he visited the little Shan Dong factory. He liked the model and decided to export these vanishing vintage shoes for the first time outside China . With his friend, Bijan Anquetil ( a film-maker), he went back to Shan dong province and started to design a new collection in collaboration with the historic factory of « Shan Dong », keeping the spirit of the original vintage model.
