OGs Slide Thru — BBC x SANDALBOYZ Collaboration

Ok not to toot my own horn but like,

toot, mother f*ckin toot.


Back in December 2015, we wrapped up the year highlighting a few of our favorite fashion waves we rode in the past year, with a trend forecast featuring SANDALBOYZ:

Yes, slides have always been around, but their practicality and ease have made them more desirable for consumers, and with the growth and upswing of activewear becoming everyday wear, the simple slide has slid its way to the top as well. Companies like Nike and adidas continued to make slides, banking on their simple designs and trademarks, while other streetwear companies have also adopted the style. Supreme, Undefeated, Diamond and Stussy have embraced the trend, and we’ve seen the slides in Louis Vuitton and Gucci as well. In fact, it’s become a movement; has anyone seen the hashtag for #SANDALBOYZ?

They’re sliding out of your DMs and onto your feet with their line dropping in January – stay tuned!

Two years later, SANDALBOYZ have had a major hand in upping the cozy culture with their cult-followers supporting the ultimate comfort and minimalistic design you can have on your feet — slides.

Driven by admiration for the legendary brand Billionaire Boys Club as well as their continual strive to break boundaries in comfort and culture, SANDALBOYZ has created a slide sandal featuring one of the most iconic prints of all time: the “diamonds and dollar signs.”

This project hits home for Fran (@franalations) and all the SANDALBOYZ owners, as they grew up idolizing and taking inspiration from streetwear heavyweights like Pharrell Williams.

“Needless to say, without BBC and Ice Cream, there would be no SANDALBOYZ.”

The slide sandal will feature SANDALBOYZ signature EVA injected phylon mid-
sole and outsole with a color matched PU leather strap. The strap features a uniquely embossed layered high density print of BBC’s iconic diamonds and dollar signs pattern. The SANDALBOYZ signature phylon is tested and rated for maximum comfort with or without socks on. The strap is sewn in with three layers of foam to ensure a snug yet pillowy fit.

Starting as a user-generated content account driven by reposts and a hashtag culture, SANDALBOYZ has flourished over the years within the streetwear realm. From the first pair of muted olive slides on Ian Connor to the ever-iconic St. Honoré slides in citrus and royal; and with their collaborations with KNYEW, Daily Paper, and Staple; each SANDALBOYZ collection has thrived on its exclusiveness, and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
