After continuing his collaborative run with Salomon for a sneaker project built to withstand all terrain, Fumito Ganryu is now shifting gears to something more cozy to slip on: an Urich sandal partnership with Suicoke. This latest team-up serves as a follow up to when the two parties joined hands for a toothy Silicon Sandal back in May 2020.
The motif for this joint venture is simple yet bold. A coral colorway dominates slip-on silhouette as it wraps the upper from front to back. The shape is left untouched and retains the traditional nylon taping and double straps that secure the bridge of the wearer’s foot. Branding, while minimal, is positioned in two places. A Suicoke hit is tonally debossed onto the lateral forefoot, while the Japanese designer’s moniker is printed across the diamond-textured EVA footbeds.
Downstairs, the EVA outsole piece comes prepared with a beefy stature, and continues the single colored-theme by also dyeing itself in a bold coral hue.
For those wanting to add these to your quarantine rotation, you can find these seeing a global launch on February 26, 2021 via Suicoke and select retailers. The MSRP is set at $225 USD.
