In a time when dressing down and leisure wear is go-to attire no matter the occasion may be, New York is the most progressive in how it handles the current climate with sophisticated ease. The New York-based fashion and lifestyle brand, SUNNI SUNNI, dares to ask the question, who says you can't wear boots year round? And the answer is no one. 

The Fall 2021 collection titled "HOME BOY", features new styles and transforms classic shapes made out of eco-friendly materials with a downtown vibe. The signature square toe-line makes a return and the brand's key silhouettes are elevated with a new embossed python print. The classic Reese boot will be offered in blood red, berry blue, brown, and yellow embossed python leather. The strong structural shapes and luxurious colors will make for the perfect statement shoe.

The self-taught footwear designer from Washington, D.C., Sunni Dixon has been a true city boy all his life. Sunni effortlessly understands the attitude expectations that come with it. Experiencing the ebbs and flows of the city life day to day endeavors with nightly functions and events you naturally gain a style that is a blend of the two. This collection interprets this street style with an assortment radiating an “all eyes on me” attitude where the shoe is the focal point.

The collection release is accompanied with Sunni’s first film installment, HOME BOY. Documenting the day to day life of two youths living in the present climate. This installment interprets the subtle duality of chaos and peace within oneself and in their environment enclosed in one space-time. This series will continue to tell stories reflecting and embellishing on the present-day reality we live in. 

The designer who launched the brand in 2020, grew up with a deep love for sci-fi, horror, and anime in films and TV. This work is envisioned through that lens and illustrated by vibrant colors, a deep tone, ambient sounds, and styled in SUNNI SUNNI footwear. The Reese square toe boot, priced at $750, and the Lonel square toe mule, priced at $550, have been very popular and best sellers. 

Including footwear, SUNNI SUNNI, has incorporated jewelry accessories into the design of some styles. The Reese Square toe boot also comes with a silver plated dual chain harness with broken chain link details sold together at $1,400. New to the season, the brand is re-introducing the Reese square toe boot with a 3” heel bringing everyday comfort and height to your closet.

Utilizing unique constructions, rich colors and prints, Sunni wants to provide progressive styles for all genders in all sizes. His plan is to push the measure on footwear design and challenge masculine and feminine barriers in fashion and he is beating all the expectations.
