AURALEE and foot the coacher are no strangers to partnership, having joined together for various leather shoes in past seasons, tackling a variety of quirky, low-key kicks that match AURALEE’s minimalist aesthetic. The Japanese brand’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection is no different, matching a host of sleek, flowing garb with a new selection of understated footwear silhouettes.
This time, foot the coacher has cooked up a twist on its barely-there Barefoot Sandal, swapping in a custom cushioned sole with square toe and a less strappy closure for snug fit. Now dubbed the Belted Beach Sandal, it’s imagined in both yellow/beige and brown/navy makeups.
Meanwhile, the slip-on is classic AURALEE: no branding, no extraneous accents, just a plush cow leather upper and understated elastic gusset for easy on-off. Olive Khaki and black iterations both feature identical moldable uppers and trim crepe soles for maximum ease and comfort.
Look for the foot the coacher shoes on AURALEE’s website, various Japanese stockists and international web stores like COVERCHORD. Each of the leather slip-ons weighs in at ￥53,900 JPY (approximately $491 USD) while the Belted Beach Sandals are both ￥28,600 JPY (approximately $260 USD).
