Following last year’s Spring/Summer 2020 collaboration with KEEN, Engineered Garments has once again tapped the Portland, Oregon based footwear company to create an exclusive style. Balancing function with modern design, this special release will be available for purchase on Friday, March 26th.
This collaboration is based on KEEN's iconic open-air shoe, the UNEEK Slides, which consists of two cords and an open-back sole. The upper, which is traditionally fabricated with elastic braids, has been changed to feature a classic leather material, evoking Engineered Garments’ signature style. The shoes are asymmetrically designed, with the left and right shoe featuring suede and smooth leather, respectively. Of course, considering Engineered Garments’ close attention to details, the leather material of the cords is asymmetrical as well. This arrangement, unique to this pair, combinees functional design with individuality.
The leather LWG-certified, meaning that it is produced by environmentally friendly tanning, highlighting KEEN’s focus on sustainable efforts. Available in two colors, natural and black, the UNEEK Slide’s and available in a wide range of sizes from ladies to men.
