Fall is upon us and Japanese labels SOUTH2 WEST8 and Suicoke have put together another seasonal assemblage of footwear options. Previously, the duo presented two pairs of Sherpa boots in 2019 and followed up with two patterned looks on the Bower silhouette in 2020. Now, they have again prepared the Bower with two patterned options that also land on the slip-on Pepper as well.
“Horn Camo” and “Native Skull & Target” serve as the aforementioned patterns used, tapping a forest-like brown mix for the former and a purple-on-black finish for the latter. Both silhouettes utilize eVent lining that offers ample weather resistance courtesy of its waterproofness and breathable properties. Each shoe’s padding favors a Thinsulate filling as a cork insole backs the pairs with additional water absorption and insluation.
The latest project between SOUTH2 WEST8 and Suicoke launches on September 29 at 10pm EDT via NEPENTHES storefronts and September 30 at 6pm EDT via Suicoke. Prices start at ¥28,600 JPY (approx. $192 USD) for the Pepper silhouette and go up to ¥37,400 JPY (approx. $251 USD) for the Bower silhouette.
