Beyond buildings and furniture, wood can be found used to make audio equipment, toys et cetera, but sandals? Well, that ought to be rather rare. Not that wooden footwear is new. Just ask the Dutch and some Asia countries. But the Reef Paipo Sandal is no ordinary footwear made out of wood; it also has full-grain leather in the mix.
Combine those materials with an ergonomic and modern design, you get yourself a pair of gorgeous flip flops. Actually. To call the Reef Paipo Wood and Leather Sandal flip-flops would be an insult. It is more than that. It is class, which the minimal, but impactful laser etching on the heel as well as the metal logo only further serves to reiterate the fact.
In addition, to sustainably source leather and wood, the sandal boasts Reef’s bio-based EVA made from renewable sugar cane.
However, such exquisite and oh-so-classy open footwear does not come cheap. The Reef Paipo sandal, which will be available in black or brown, will run you back at US$150 a pair when it drops on August 24, 2021.
If you are down, you may get yourself signed up at Reef.com to be notified of its availability. And you will want to do that if you are super keen because the Reef Paipo will be launched in limited quantity.
