Key Features: Suicoke’s rare venture into non-sandal territory sees the Japanese brand borrow from various different trends and styles, such as a knit, sock-like bootie that is removable via a Velcro fastening system, and a treaded, hiking-inspired gum outsole. Once the bootie is removed, the shoe turns into a sort of clog, with a leather upper covering the forefoot and sides and a slingback strap running across the heel.
Release Date: Available now
Editor’s Notes: SSENSE has just stocked a new colorway of one of Suicoke’s rare non-sandal sneakers. The style in question is the Suicoke RAC-AN and comes in an elegant black colorway with a contrasting gum sole. The sneaker has a technical feel to it thanks to its adjustable slingback strap and detachable knit underlay, which, when removed, turns the sneaker into a clog-like sandal. The ability to switch seamlessly between sneaker and clog comes just as summer is ending and cooler weather approaches. It also offers wearers a welcome bit of versatility.
