By now, sporty velcro sandals don’t need an introduction. Hiking sandals like the ones from Teva have become a staple of comfort dressing even during the pre-pandemic era.
The trend also saw the rise in popularity of cult brands like Japanese label Suicoke which have become the go-to sandal brand for the fashion tribe who seek it for its utilitarian style and comfortable signature design of ridged footbeds constructed on top of a Vibram Morflex sole. One just needs to consider the collaborations with brands like Cecilie Bahnsen, Fumito Ganryu, and Palm Angels to gauge the brand’s cool factor.
Naturally, the practical aspect of the footwear style has been magnified in this age of loungewear. To elevate this ubiquitous footwear of choice, designers are also putting their own high-impact stamp on the shoes, further giving them more mileage.
