Complete creative freedom and a fresh direction: the rebellious spirit behind the first Dr. Martens x Suicoke collaboration.
Founded in 2006, Japanese brand Suicoke initially attained cult status at home, producing small accessories and hand-painted Russian nesting dolls. Since then, Suicoke has established a reputation for their streetwear-inspired sandals that combine clean, refined style, meticulous design and high-quality technical materials.
Masters of combining bold contemporary forms with stripped-back functionality, Suicoke are known for simplistic styles that provide a versatile go-to for wearers with an ever-evolving style. Like our Original 1460 8-eyelet boot — Suicoke specialise in creating footwear that provides a blank canvas to make a statement.
“We don’t design to a specific demographic, but simply to make something special. It shouldn’t be distinguished from us but rather by the consumer. They are the ones with the freedom and right to choose the product if it fits their lifestyle” – Suicoke
Both Dr. Martens and Suicoke have attitude and resilience locked in at the sole. Every Suicoke sandal is built on a hardwearing Vibram outsole with an EVA footbed for lightweight shock-absorption and wearability. This technical and refined foundation means that Suicoke sandals are well-equipped to push boundaries. Rain or shine. Socks or no socks — it’s always Suicoke weather.
Since their founding, Suicoke have worked with a host of likeminded brands like Monkey Time, Aries and long-time DM’s partner A Bathing Ape. With a solidified international reputation as a versatile and adventurous fashion collective, Suicoke are ahead of the global curve. At the forefront of a streetwear movement that as seen style choices like socks-and-sliders evolve from a post-exercise convenience to a deliberate and refined styling decision.
Relaxed and refined. Technical and innovative. Rebellious and adventurous. Dr. Martens X Suicoke is a collaboration designed to challenge the status quo.
