THE NEW EXPERIMENT OF FOOTWEAR EVOLUTION: OAKLEY FACTORY TEAM INTRODUCES PAGURO
A MIND-BENDING SLIP-ON STYLE DESIGNED BY BRAIN DEAD, POWERED BY OAKLEY
Wednesday, July 5, 2023 —
The Oakley Factory Team expands its creative ecosystem to include the Paguro Capsule Collection. The brand-new silhouette is the first-of-its-kind to be calibrated and developed deep in the Factory Team Labs.
Available in three organic tones – Coffee (for purchase exclusively through Brain Dead), Hummus and Toadstool – Paguro’s dynamic silhouette gets its name from the crustaceans that evolved by migrating from shell to shell.
Each Paguro mule is formed with a unique compound structure to create an intricate organic casing for lasting comfort and support. This intentional design is complimented by two contrasting densities of injected EVA which form the foundation of the sandal. Paguro’s durable heel insert provides a bouncy springboard for each step, while its cozy interior is calibrated by a firm exterior. An extra-dense outsole material grounds the shoe and keeps a tight grip on terrain as you explore.
The Oakley Factory Team Paguro in Toadstool is not poisonous to humans, unlike its fungus cousin. A unique purple hue gives these sandals a sense of softness and calm, one that encourages your feet to call this slip-on home.
The mouth-watering hue of the Oakley Factory Team Paguro in Hummus makes it the go-to mule for any occasion. The neutral upper mixed with the contrasting traction pods add to the complexity of its flavor.
The tasteful and sleek Oakley Factory Team x Brain Dead Paguro in Coffee, available for purchase exclusively through Brain Dead, is a subtle choice that complements any color palette. Bold and with eye-catching details, the Coffee Paguro features a silhouette that seamlessly slips on.
The exclusive Oakley Factory Team x Brain Dead Paguro Toadstool and Hummus colorways will be available from July 11 at 10 AM PT on WEAREBRAINDEAD.COM, Oakley.com, at select Brain Dead locations worldwide, and the following Oakley stores:
Oakley Cadorna, Milan
