While the majority of us remain trapped at home with our day-to-day affairs inconveniently placed on the back burner, brands far and wide are in the midst of unveiling their new spring/summer creations as originally intended. Just last week, adidas took the wraps off its new YEEZY Slide capsule, ushering a counter move from its long-time chief competitor. Nike is now set to unleash a new sandal collection of its own.
Structurally similar to the unique iterations flowing out of Suicoke’s camp, the Swoosh brand’s Asuna slide fronts an atypical framework with several creative touch points harmoniously aligned next to each other. Dropping in a trio of bold colorways, including “University Red,” “Triple Black” and “Black/White,” the item makes functional use of a quilted vamp strap and an asymmetrical toggle lacing system meant to offer a snug, customizable fit. Elsewhere, a soft foam footbed is met with a toothed outsole tread that places comfort, practicality and stylishness on equal footing; no pun intended.
