After dropping its three-layered waterproof capsule mid-summer, Japanese label South2 West8 has teamed up with Suicoke for an exclusive iteration of the latter’s Bower ankle boot.

A recognisable silhouette with a chunky rubber sole, the Bower boot is arguably Suicoke’s most popular shoe. Ankle length and with the archetypal drawstring fastening, the look is completed with a signature square toe finish.

Comprising two striking prints, each boot features an innovative eVent material — a technical fabric that’s both waterproof and breathable — as well as a lightweight 3M synthetic fleece for enhanced heat retention.

“Skull and Target” and “Tiger Camo” are the color variations of each silhouette, both of which release on October 17 via the Nepenthes webstore.

In other news, adidas Originals has wrapped its Superstar sneaker in an all-over leopard print.
