After they were unveiled at the Junya Watanabe MAN FW23 runway show during Paris Fashion Week, we now get a closer look at the Junya Watanabe MAN x Oakley Factory Team footwear via Kyle Ng and Elia Fornari from Brain Dead.

Oakley Factory Team innovation lab is a joint venture between Brain Dead and Oakley launched in April of last year. The purpose of the project is to expand upon Oakley’s rich history of innovation and experimentation by injecting the DNA of archived products into new products via Brain Dead’s distinct lens and marketing matrix.

The first model the Factory Team brought back was the classic Oakley Flesh silhouette, which now appears once again as part of the Junya Watanabe MAN collaboration as a laceless, no-frills, all-black silhouette, echoing the monochromatic and restrained nature of the collection. Also in the FW23 lineup are collaborative Oakley Factory Team Flesh Sandals featuring neoprene collars, lycra lining, suede paneling, window cutouts, and finger-like black rubber soles. Subtle Oakley logos are secured across both silhouettes and co-branding is visible on the insoles.

Other collaborations presented in Junya Watanabe MAN FW23 include joint offerings from Carhartt WIP, Palace, Levi’s, New Balance, and Inerraum. Stay tuned for release details.
