Ekn Palm Slide Black Leather
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 aesthetic of a slide.
The slide’s also feature a stacked vegetable-tanned suede/cork combination footbed and an EVA Vibram ripple outsole.
This style runs true to size, so take your regular size. If you have any sizing queries, feel free to get in touch!
Ekn footwear was founded as a viable alternative for a global footwear industry flooded with poorly fabricated synthetic shoes, harmful both to the environment and the people involved – fabrication workers and consumers. Therefore Ekn are not afraid to take responsibility for everyone involved in the process and experience of making, shipping and wearing our products. Each shoe is handmade by experienced Portuguese craftsmen, using biological materials - vegetable tanned lather, organic cotton, and recycled rubber - from the highest quality suppliers. There are zero harmful chemicals used in manufacturing process. Every style is produced in limited quantities to ensure minimal environmental impact and maximum attention to detail.
