This summer has given us many a divisive trend (cycling shorts, tie-dye and neon, to name a few). However, sometimes the unexpected trends turn out to be the best, and that's certainly true of Velcro-strap sandals. Our obsession began earlier this summer when a host of influencers started sporting them with everything from midi dresses to cropped jeans. Initially, Teva was the brand that proved victorious, as its black, minimalistic sandals proceeded to sell out within a couple of weeks. Now, though, it's evident that another shoe brand has begun to rise through the ranks. Everywhere we look, we keep seeing stylish women wearing Suicoke sandals.
Founded in 2006, the cult Japanese label had incongruous beginnings crafting small wooden ornaments before transitioning into footwear. Boasting foam soles and cushioned velcro straps, Suicoke swiftly gained momentum in its country of origin as a key name in the shoe world. Today, its international profile is continually growing, though it still remains relatively under the radar on Brit soil. As such, we think it's the perfect time to invest in a pair before they go mainstream.
