The latest offering from my Mr. Bailey collaboration with the German sustainable brand, ekn Footwear is the super clean and minimal PALM Slide, a sleek handmade annotation of today’s technical sandals.
Handmade in Portugal, the design inspired by the foxing generally found on vulcanized footwear. The slide’s feature a one-piece, vegetable-tanned leather upper that wraps around the ergonomic footbed and extends from the heel to the forefront, creating a clean, seamless foot strap. I basically wanted to create something both unique and extremely minimal at the same time, something that embodied iconic sandals of the past, but kept the contemporary aestheic of a slide.
The slide’s also feature a stacked vegetable-tanned suede/cork combination footbed and an EVA Vibram ripple outsole.
Available in black, white & tan in both men’s and women’s sizes exclusively on www.eknfootwear.com
