NikeLab is offering a high-fashion set of sport sandals for consumers to adorn casually this summer, with the Taupo design. The sandal redesigns the slip-on footwear previously made for athletes and sport enthusiasts pre and post workout to be a much more stylish everyday staple. The footwear is elevated in style using fashionable materials such as patent leather and adding more geometric forms such as a criss-cross wrap band.

Sport sandals have quickly expanded in popularity outside of the athletic sphere to be an everyday footwear option thanks to the convenience of the slip-on design. The Taupo sandals elevate the simplistic sandal with a patent leather upper coupled with a wrap banding around the centre of the foot. The sandals also include a grip rubber bottom for balance and durability.
