GOLETA, Calif. October 25th, 2021 – Footwear innovation brand Deckers X Lab (deckersxlab.com) has partnered with local weaver and french artist Nadine Marchal. Inspired by the new moon wind, Nadine brings her art of weaving into a ultra-limited edition for the lab’s best-selling slip-on shearling boot.
Designed and woven on a manual loom in France, the textile panel in the forefoot of this boot features hand-dyed recycled wool yarns. Every shoe in this ultra-limited drop is totally unique and is the newest edition to the KO-Z SNPR lineup, which redefines what it means to be actively comfortable.
The revolutionary design of the SNPR blends the relaxed coziness of the house slipper with the street performance of the everyday sneaker and the ultimate cushion of a recovery shoe. Equipped with Meta- Rocker geometry and an ultra-wide/ultralight light sponge rubber outsole, the combination of technology of the inner and outer layer makes the KO-Z SNPR suited for a wide range of motion, from a casual walk outside to a walk around your home. Like all Deckers footwear, the SNPR Woven Mid is made in partnership with HERproject, a collaborative initiative that creates partnerships with brands like Deckers to empower and educate women in the workplace.
The KO-Z SNPR Woven is the first in the Deckers X Lab lineup to incorporate the personal and creative touch of a local artisan. As Deckers X Lab continues to release genre-bending footwear designs, they plan to collaborate with more local artisans to bring an artistic personal touch to their advanced footwear lineup.
The KO-Z SNPR Mid Woven is available in women’s sizes exclusively at https://deckersxlab.com.
