Predominately a sandal brand; Suicoke trades off the secretive air that surrounds the label and all they do. From designer collaborations to catwalk shows featuring shoes in their diverse range, Suicoke is a seemingly fast-paced label. Gaining a cult following since the formation of the brand in 2006 - especially here in Australia where you are unable to order online. This exclusivity and slow expansion make it stand out from the rest. Only launching a brick and mortar store in Tokyo in April of this year! Notable is the continuity in design and the slow evolution of styles through technological advancements and careful adjustments. This has meant we can rely on our Suicoke sandals, not only standing the test of time but allowing us practical comfort and ease of style.
If you are a trainer all year round kind of person, this is the shoe for you. Through innovative design, the range of sandals we have available are truly multifunctional. Providing the freedom to be taken from a nature walk to the city streets in a heartbeat. They will be your guiding light through the summer, and for the spring/autumn season bring them out when you want to have a little bit of fun, pairing with an electric coloured sock or even something a little more understated, black on black for instance. The International sales manager for Suicoke, Jinichi Leung, says of the brand “We would like to break the barriers placed on sandals as casual dress attire…if one day, similar to jeans, you could find Suicoke products at a red carpet or high dress attire event, we would be happy.”
So let your imagination run free, wear the sandals wherever they want to be worn. Let your feet lead this year. No more fussy clips, zips or buckles, just glide through the hot sticky summer with a pair of easy to wear, easy to love Suicoke.
