The sandals, mules and clogs trends continue to trend in the upwards direction, and one the brands that is certainly benefitting from this is Suicoke. The Japanese imprint has been heavily focused on rolling out a plethora of collaborative projects as it recently teamed up with Missoni and Carhartt WIP, and now it’s tapping independent artist Joshua Vides for a new team-up that entails the BITA-V.
Vides is known for his signature sketch-inspired, black-and-white design language, and that’s exactly what he delivers to this footwear collaboration. Toe boxes and collars are what give the kicks their appeal as they have been decorated with metatarsal imagery in white as they lay on against solid black neoprene backdrops. Branding is present from both parties here as Suicoke banners are found on the straps while Vides’ cone logo is stamped to the heel straps. The BITA-V typically has a split-toe construction but it’s been discarded for this installment and the toothy midsoles have been slightly beefed up.
Peep a full look at the pair right here and note that these will be releasing via Suicoke on August 12 for $235 USD.
