TOKYO SANDAL has unveiled its eclectic Spring/Summer 2020 footwear range. Every pair of leather goods from the Japanese label is crafted in the nation’s capital with a particular dedication to comfort and longevity. This collection includes a wide array of rustic styles, spanning flip-flops, slides, slip-ons and lace-up shoes, to name a few.
One noteworthy piece is the “Heel Hold Slip-On” silhouette, coming with a smooth leather forefoot and a suede-tinged rear strap that wraps around the heel. The shoe boasts a sleek leather belt that can be adjusted for a fit that best suits the wearer. Besides thin top-stitching around the belt, the piece has been reinforced with contrasting white seams around the edges of the shoe, securing the thick leather of the uppers to the ergonomic footbed and well-cushioned outsole.
Another highlight is the “Setta Sandals,” adapted from traditional Zori sandals. Its distinctive “V”-shaped straps are cushioned, smoothened with rich full-grain Tochigi leather and tapers off towards the forefoot. The minimal uppers sit above an articulated footbed that comfortably molds to the wearer’s foot over time. Other pieces like the woven “Waraji Sandals,” “Tabi Slip-On,” “Double Monk Sandals” and “Side Gore Slip-On” round up the rustic lineup.
TOKYO SANDAL’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection is currently available at select retailers like MUSHMAN’s website, ranging from $324 – $464 USD.
