British shoemaker Dr. Martens who has collaborated with other brands and stores like Atmos, JJJJound and Rick owens to expand its offering, recently partnered with Japanese shoe brand Suicoke. The result is an exclusive sandal collection that pairs Suicoke’s Mura slip-on model with Dr Martens’ custom Lorsan outsole.
“Building on the brand’s unique approach to design, we worked together to create a unique fusion of Suicoke’s ‘Mura’ silhouette to slip on with our lightweight Lorsan outsole. By bringing together the spirit of the two brands, we have created a silhouette that is not just a collision of cultures, but a union of our commitment to quality and design. Not only has Suicoke transformed the way the male streetwear scene looks at sandals, but their influence is also everywhere, ”says Dr. Martens in a press release.
The new DM Mura sandal is available in two versions: either in black smooth leather or in black New Vibrance Croco leather with a neoprene upper for more flexibility and comfort. Both have hook closures on the side and a Velcro heel strap.
The sandal was finished with Dr Martens branded yellow welt stitching, a black and yellow heel buckle and a custom double branded footbed. It is also engraved with the Dr. Martens and Suicoke logos.
The collection will be released on August 28 and will be available on the official Dr. Martens website and at selected partners. Prices have yet to be released.
