Brand: 1017 ALYX 9SM
Model: Mono Slip-On
Release Date: Available now for pre-order
What We’re Saying: Kanye West's YEEZY Foam Runner is arguably the hottest shoe of the summer, but competing brands continue to bridge the gap by releasing their own versions of an EVA foam slip-on. Matthew M. Williams' 1017 ALYX 9SM is one such label that has delivered a silhouette comparable to Kanye's creation, with the Mono Slip-On.
As a part of a special SS22 capsule, ALYX presents the Mono Slip-On in an eye-catching red and pink colorway inspired by the volcanic Aeolian Islands of Stromboli. Made from a single piece of EVA foam, the Mono Slip-On and its seamless construction offer superior comfort for all-day wear. This particular iteration of the shoe stands out due to the vibrant colorway and more specifically, the fade treatment that blends the red and pink hues.
Along with the Foam Runner, Crocs Classic Clog, and Merrell Hydro Moc, just to name a few, the Mono Slip-On is now one of many laceless footwear silhouettes that are stylish options for warm weather wear when something other than a sneaker is desired. Does this new colorway of the ALYX model put it ahead of the Foam Runner? That's entirely up to you. But if you are feeling it, simply follow the link below to order your size today.
