Suicoke Spring/Summer 2020 Lookbook Collection

Written by admin


Quirky footwear imprint Suicoke has recently issued a variety of off-kilter shoes ranging from metal bit chukka boots to revamped geta sandals, but perhaps its most unusual offering to date is launching as part of its Spring/Summer 2020 collection. Amidst an array of classic strappy sandals and closed-toe clogs, the Japanese label has delivered a twist on Vibram’s infamous “toe shoes.”

Vibram, a longtime Suicoke partner, markets its FiveFingers silhouette — commonly referred to as “toe shoes” — as the ultimate minimalist running sneaker, though it has long been decried the world’s ugliest shoe. Suicoke’s twist on the divisive silhouette maintains the distinctive toes, upgrading the slip-on style with an ankle-height breathable bootie or tall shaft, depending on the style. The latter style is more similar to a boot, though both retain an easy-access tearaway closure on the rear and Vibram’s grippy rubber outsole for maximum traction.

Much of Suicoke’s other Spring/Summer 2020 offerings are comparatively conventional, with several recognizable silhouettes receiving only slight tweaks. For instance, the MOTO slide sandal is essentially unchanged, but it now sports a graphic hit on its technical strap. Similarly, the DEPA, KISEE and other timeless models return alongside new favorites like the TONO flip-flop and an espadrille style first seen as a mastermind WORLD collaboration.

Expect the new range to hit Suicoke’s web store and stockists like HBX early next year.

The cold weather hasn’t stopped various fashion brands from debuting progressive twists on the sandal; Vetements recently introduced its own anatomic take on the flip-flop.
