Sanuk Partners with Global Artist Susan Wickstrand to Design Limited Edition Collection

Fun-Loving Spirit and Californian Roots Come Together to Create the
“Aloha Series”

a division of Deckers Brands (NYSE:DECK), announces the release of a
collaborative footwear collection designed with globally recognized
artist and Sanuk Brand Ambassador, Susan Wickstrand. Dubbed the “Aloha
Series”, the collection introduces three limited edition designs for
women: two variations of Sanuk’s top-selling Yoga Sling and an updated
take to slip-on model, the Pair O Sail. Ranging in price from $45 – $60,
the Sanuk x Susan Wickstrand Aloha Series is available now at specialty
retailers, Sanuk stores and online at

“We are excited to partner with Susan as her signature aesthetic brings
a fun, patterned spin to some of our most popular women’s silhouettes,”
said Anders Bergstrom, director of marketing for Sanuk. “A longtime
brand ambassador, working with Susan in this collaborative capacity was
a natural fit and the resulting products offer unique choices for our
loyal consumers.”

Known as the “Queen of Collage”, Wickstrand draws inspiration from her
California roots to create vibrant artworks across mediums. From oil and
acrylics, to wax collages on wood panels, Susan’s passion has been
professionally captured for more than 25 years. For the Aloha Series
collection, Susan created two custom patterns for Sanuk inspired by her
collage work: an orchid bloom print and a colorful, palm tree design
emblazoned with the moniker of Susan and Sanuk’s shared home in

The Yoga Sling silhouette is offered in both the orchid and the
California patterns. The brand’s perennial favorite sandal, the Yoga
Sling features a two-way stretch knit upper and a footbed built from
real yoga mat material for top-level comfort. The Pair O Sail is
available with the California patterned upper. The design is an easy
slip-on boat shoe with a soft enzyme washed canvas upper. The Pair O
Sail features Sanuk’s signature Yoga Mat drop in comfort and an
ultra-flexible rubber cupsole for increased durability.
