It’s common knowledge to associate the summer season with the hottest swimwear, maybe even the trendiest sunnies, but let’s not forget how summer footwear comes into play. [firstpara] Just like certain shoes are essential for the rainy season, this time of year has its ideal collection of footwear as well.
In comes Cushe (pronounced as cushy), who has recently launched its collection of urban kicks, sandals, and slippers here in our nation.
FHM bore witness to Cushe’s very own Urban Art Fest held in Trinoma earlier this month, where musicians, graffiti artists, photographers, and street dancers all came to celebrate a night of urban expression. An outstanding display of a welcome party, it sure was.
A footwear brand made by our British brothers in the UK, Cushe is coming up with sandals and slippers under the Coastal Supremacy line, which is perfect for the summer months. The Coastal Supremacy line uses new resources and fabrics, incorporating quick drying properties and use of natural components.
Flipping under the Coastal line is the Manuka series. The compilation consists of a mouthful of flip-flops, slippers, and sandals labeled in several codenames, most notably the Manuka Fearless and the Manuka Fossil Flop.
Being fearless means taking risks, and this flip-flop collection certainly lived up to its name. It has a honeycomb pattern that’s taken over a plain, run-of-the-mill foot bed, and has a molded outsole that cradles the feet. Cushe wearers would go on to say that all other flips would pale in comparison compared to these babies.
Manuka Fossil Flop
Legend has it that the Fossil Flop is actually the Promised Land, maybe even the ultimate paradise. It has a soft blown rubber and anatomically-shaped last, bringing comfort to a whole new dimension. Fruity colors it might bear, but these flops are too comfy for us to even care.
Other editions like the Manuka Webb and Manuka Slide are also available, but to associate Cushe with summer flops alone is a big no-no. If you want to see their collection of sneaks and bad-ass kicks, click here.
