We believe every shoe wardrobe should have a fisherman sandal. Here's why - t-bar strap toe coverage makes them everyday appropriate for work type things (and no-time-for-pedicures friendly), while the ribcage straps on the upper give them a dramatic dressed-up feeling for events. Designed for those times you need something a little sharp, but want to remain firmly grounded.
But let us explain a little more about the more pragmatic details of the new outsole we have built. This is a one-piece stacked resin construction finished with a rubber outsole. In our mix of sandals it would sit in the 'sharp' spectrum designed for wearing to events and less 'active' days. Like our Sun-Ra sandals they are structured under foot and make a satisfying 'click-click' sound as you walk. In signature Radical Yes style (also like Sun Ra), they are also heavily padded through the footbed to provide you with a feeling of cushion like support.
Being obsessed with flat shoes, we thought a lot about the height - and placed careful consideration on getting this flat-form at perfectly wearable proportions, rising to a gentle 40mm height through the heel and graduating to a soft landing 30mm height through the ball of the foot. Complimented with a chunky buckle detail, Arkestra is the modern take on a fisherman shoe you've been dreaming of.
