DV + Suicoke Insulated LoaferBlack
The Insulated Loafer was developed in collaboration with Suicoke and inspired by our ongoing fascination with Japanese crafts and culture. We started traveling to Japan in 2013 with the goal of finding the most advanced eyewear factory in the world. In the process, we fell in love with the Japanese dedication to honing a single skillset over the course of a lifetime, often passed from one generation to the next. This hyper-focused approach to work can be witnessed anywhere from Zen meditation to product engineering and food.
Our second collaboration with Japanese footwear specialist Suicoke is designed for a slower pace of life, taking refuge in Japanese gardens, traditional ‘Kominka’ homes, and meditation temples to find inner peace. The loafer combines a custom-embroidered insulated nylon upper with Suicoke’s signature anatomical and antimicrobial EVA footbed and an original Suicoke outsole. The shoes feature sewn silicone badges, a high-density foam platform midsole, and shock cord adjustments around the ankle for a customizable fit and increased heat retention.
*Please note: The loafer runs small and narrow. We recommend sizing up two whole sizes from your usual size.
