Of all the Suicoke styles that've stuck around as the Japanese shoemaker shifts focus from simple strappy sandals to advanced summer styling, the MOTO slide is one of the few that've needed no improvement.
Well, they could maybe be a bit more opulent, I suppose, which is where Marsèll comes in.
Italian label Marsèll is best known for its artisanal footwear, all cobbled by hand in the company's Riviera del Brenta atelier in Venice.
So it goes for Marsèll's spin on one of Suicoke's signature shapes, which pieces together the laceless MOTO sandal from lush chunks of grained leather, offered in brilliant pastel hues or simple monochrome shades.
Everything from the straps to the footbed of Marsèll's MOTO is made of plush cowhide, while the footbed is made of recycled rubber, a tacit reflection of Suicoke's enduring efforts to make its products more eco-conscious.
The shoe's proportions have been subtly beefed up to reflect the hands-on construction of each shoe, with the larger shape emphasizing the primo production and longer straps that more securely lock in the wearer's foot.
Available in a limited edition of 1,000 pieces, the DEPA was one of Suicoke's rarest shoes ever.
The collaborative MOTO will also be available in an exclusive run when it drops April 14 via Suicoke's web store, Marsèll's website, and what Suicoke is calling "the most prestigious retailers in the world": SSENSE, Ekseption, Andrea Murkudis and 10 Corso Como, to name a few.
Safe to say, though, that this Marsèll version is the MOTO's most luxe look to date.
