Building off of SUICOKE’s FUTON-LO, doublet generously lines the whacky and whimsical silhouette with faux fur, adding adorable bat-eared toes. Vibram bulks up the shoe with its Furoshiki construction, providing a sturdy, branded heel. Unfastening the side and opening the flap allows for easy entry. The avant-garde shoes arrive in an all-black colorway, as well as a black and dusty pink striped iteration. This isn’t the first time fashion has mirrored nature as doublet’s Fall/Winter 2023 Paris Fashion Week show welcomed several four-legged references in the form of hair-covered Vans, overalls that transformed models into upright bunnies, alongside voguing mice and furry sweatpants.
“The Bat” is available for $430 USD and can be purchased on SUICOKE’s website on August 11 at 6 p.m. ET. Take a look in the gallery above.
