In recent years, TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist. has made noise via both its seasonal collections and unique footwear collaborations. Whether it be combining running shoes with Chelsea Boots or reimagining Cowboy Boots, Takahiro Miyashita’s eponymous label keeps fans on their toes. Recently, the Japanese brand connected with Suicoke to utilize Vibram’s FiveFinger design. Starting with a traditional outdoor style in 2021 and then pivoting to a Chelsea Boot hybrid for 2022, the duo now continues to embrace this sole unit with a new plain dress shoe and Chukka Boot equipped with visible toe slots.
First spotted in TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist.’s FW22 collection, both shoes utilize an all-black look that the two are no strangers to. Leather uppers in each respective style combine with the stand out rubber Vibram FiveFinger sole unit. Additional Vibram technology includes Megagrip, designed to provide excellent grip no matter the terrain.
For those looking to spice up their footwear rotation this fall, the latest TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist. x Suicoke FiveFinger styles are available now via TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist. Prices start at ¥28,600 JPY (approx. $192 USD) for the plain shoe and go up to ¥29,700 JPY for the Chukka Boot (approx. $199 USD).
