Inspired by champion surfer Kelly Slater, the brand’s debut shoe embodies the spirit of the adrenaline-inducing sport. “Slater was one of my idols growing up and it felt fitting to channel my love of board sports into the first BLUEMARBLE sneakers. I wanted to develop a design that would enhance our menswear and be embraced by our community,” Alvarez shares in an exclusive press release.
The off-white silhouette is comprised of a thick rubber sole and cotton twill upper that is masterfully embroidered with a textural wave motif. Frayed detailing is joined by an additional set of eyelets that allow the laces to tie at the heel.
