Though West coast rappers, Japanese tourists and British grandads have been fronting this bold look since D-Day, many of us are still to fully realise the powerful alliance that happens when sock meets sandal.
If you needed any more reassurance that this look is a winner then check out cool New York label Opening Ceremony’s collection of sock friendly sandals that they’ve collab-ed on with legendary California outdoor brand Teva. This trio of toe teasing treats features the ‘Universal Hurricane’ which sees the classic Teva Hurricane sandal re-imagined with gold and silver metallic nylon and the addition of a removable ankle strap. Also inspired by the Hurricane is the never-before-seen ‘Gladiator Hurricane’ incorporating Teva’s classic patterned webbing onto a brand new ankle-height silhouette in navy and red colourways. Last but not least Opening Ceremony has also reissued a Teva favourite from the archive in the form of the ‘Psyclone’, which features a comfortable, versatile neoprene upper in black and teal. So now you know that it’s perfectly fine to team up a nice pair of socks with a really cool pair of sandals, just make sure the rest of your outfit is on point too OK?
The Opening Ceremony and Teva Collection will be available exclusively at Opening Ceremony boutiques in London, New York, Los Angeles, Japan and openingceremony.us.
