The X-SCAPE Knit Low Might Just be Comfiest Sneaker to Ever Hit the Sidewalk

More often than not you’ve got one shoe to do this and a shoe for that, but what if there was finally a shoe designed to provide the best in comfort, style, and versatility for those living a performance-based lifestyle? – and even those who just enjoy a good walk. The X-SCAPE Knit Low is the latest to come from Deckers X Lab with a new silhouette that defines the athleisure sneaker. 

The shoe’s construction is unlike any other to come from DXLab. The upper is a single piece of eco-conscious Sorona® yarn fabric that is as easy on the eyes as it is comfortable surrounding the feet. With or without socks, the breathable knit fabric eliminates pressure points while simultaneously fitting to your foot like a glove for coffee runs or getting in a few sets at the gym. 

The Xponent HD midsole is a blend of bio-based sugarcane and lightweight performance EVA that not only provides endless comfort under the foot, it’s also extremely actionable for when it comes time to kick it into high gear. At the foundation of the Knit Low, a grippy sole made from recycled rubber with an Omni-directional tread that helps to keep you in the upright position no matter where the trail takes you. And rounding out the X-SCAPE Knit’s innovative design, the Decker’s team made every effort to use recycled and next-generation materials to cut waste and quite literally, tread lightly on the planet.

It seems almost too good to be true, but the X-SCAPE Knit Low takes one step closer to answering the eternal question, “Can’t I just get a shoe that does everything I want it to do?”

DXLAB Ba Da Da Sandals

DXLAB Launches THE Flip-Flop Design That Will Change The Sandal Game

The BA DA DA high fives summer with asymmetrical innovation and meta-rocker midsole.

Footwear innovation brand Deckers X Lab quite literally went well beyond the constraints of common flip-flop designs with the all-new BA DA DA. Always looking to improve and re-invent, the BA DA DA (based on the Zulu word for sandal) is set to change the game within the flip-flop world. Part of their KO-Z line of footwear, the BA DA DA features an asymmetrical strap with a meta-rocker midsole prioritizing mobility, flow, and all-day comfort.

The BA DA DA’s strap was moved to fit asymmetrically on the footbed to help secure the foot for when the chill moves to adventure. The strap itself is oozing in comfort with an ultra-plush lining, a soft toe post, and the durable hemp construction aids in moisture control. The strap’s positioning and composition add emphasis to DXLab’s evolution in Flow Wear with the BA DA DA moving in stride with the foot. 

From a distance, the BA DA DA is certainly a flip-flop, but underfoot the light, cushioned, and up-cycled construction combined with a rockered geometry to improve proficiency in the natural stride and an extra grippy sole open the doors to variable terrain, and to what DXLab calls “flip-flow”.

The BA DA DA is not only the next iteration in design from Deckers X Lab, the production line is built on sustainability. Intent on not allowing any materials to go to waste, materials discarded from one pair of BA DA DAs are up-cycled to make the next pair. And this up-cycle production falls right in line with all of DXLab’s experiences and Flow Wear that are built to last. 

The BA DA DA has the aesthetics of a casual and comfortable flip-flop, designed to go where no flip-flop has gone before while defining “flip-flow”.
