For sports enthusiasts, he’s the artist who dreamed of having a kaleidoscopic basketball court. For the home buddies, he is a designer that reimagines furniture and housewares. This time, Yinka Ilori is giving life to footwear designs. 

Yinka Ilori began his career upcycling furniture pieces to give them a new lease of life, interweave narratives and evoke emotional responses using vibrant colors and fabrics inspired by his British-Nigerian heritage. He has since brought his trademark graphic style to communities around the globe through a series of playful public commissions.

He has since brought his trademark graphic style to communities around the globe through a series of playful public commissions. 

This time, his inimitable joyful aesthetic graces a statement FitFlop sandal collection. Yinka chose five of the brand’s most popular ergonomic sandal silhouettes (plus a slipper and, of course, the iconic Shuv clog) and gave each a makeover. He’s reinterpreted the iQushion flip-flop and pool slide (men’s versions too), the Surfa, the Shuv— in a limited edition of 250 numbered pairs—and a classic canvas slipper.

“My work is very much about inclusivity and how people enjoy design,” he says. “And so, I’m super excited to be working with FitFlop on my first footwear collection, and really looking forward to seeing the joy these shoes will bring to people when they put them on their feet.”

If you’re looking for more colors to add life in your summer OOTD, you won’t get wrong with getting a pair of sandals designed by Yinka. This is now available in FitFlop Philippines both online and on their physical stores.
