There is a common saying, “Don’t mess with a good thing.” Although I agree that never a classic piece like a leather jacket, white t-shirt or acoustic guitar Need An upgrade can be fun to spruce things up to give them new life. The same can be said about FitFlop’s classic sandal silhouette – although they are known for being stylish, practical and comfortable, they have undergone a vital change. The brand has released a new FitFlop x Yinka Ilori shoe collection and the classic styles are now more colorful than ever.
Inca Ilori is a British-Nigerian designer known for her optimistic colors in her work. He started his career by upcycling furniture, which means he is an expert in upgrading durable pieces. She uses the same style in FitFlop’s shoe styles and gives the slide, flip flop, toe-post sandals and slipper shoe styles a vibrant summer look – each design works with FitFlop’s ergonomic structure and adds to their enjoyment.
“My job is a lot more about inclusion and how people enjoy the design,” Ilory said.
As someone who lives in the city but prefers summer beach travel, I am particularly excited about the effectiveness of this collection. I prefer shoes that are practical for long distance walking, so I am usually forced to wear a sneaker. FitFlop’s collection creates the opportunity to have hybrid sandals that work for city streets or sand.
