For centuries, sandals have been an important part of Japanese culture and life. In the modern age, comfort and convenience have been at the forefront of Japanese design and lifestyle. In 2016, Subu thought to combine these points to create their 'winter sandal' - a combination of tradition with modern style. Dubbed ‘The Unexpected Winter Sandal’, Subu’s very own verbs on their creation are lovely - ‘Shoes you slip on and the entire world is instantly within reach. Shoes of relaxed days, explorations of the neighborhood, and clear air breathed on a laidback mountain hike. Sandals.’ These practical sandals are made for everyday life with a durable outsole and teflon coated nylon upper to deter water and stains. A 'cloud-like comfort' is ensured thanks to a four layer cushioned insole and the insulated upper guarantees warmth during the cooler months. Since their creation, Subu have grown a steady following and have worked with many collaborative partners such as Beams Japan. This season, they have teamed up with British creative design duo Eley Kishimoto for a fun capsule pack. Check out our Subu range in store and online.
