Mr. Bailey x Ekn Footwear PALM Slide

The latest offering from the Mr. Bailey collaboration with 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. We 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.comPALM-2-560x527
