Deckers X Lab KO-Z Collection brings weekend comfort to your everyday attire. The KO-Z collection of sandals and slippers is made by Deckers X Lab, the innovation department of Deckers, owner of HOKA, UGG, Sanuk, and Teva. Deckers X Lab is pushing the boundaries of footwear and is led by HOKA co-founder and former CEO of Salomon, Jean-Luc Diard. Here’s a compilation of the most comfortable shoes to ever walk the Earth.
KO-Z Mule | MSRP $130
With a performance midsole, the KO-Z Mule doubles as an everyday sneaker. Under the foot is 5mm of looped wool layered on top of 5 layers of foam – with the softest memory foam closest to the foot. With the addition of a rocker in the midfoot and an extended squaretail rear, the KO-Z MULE stays with your foot for every step. The ultralight sponge rubber outsole brings durability and grip so you can wear these wherever your day takes you – be it indoors or out.
KO-Z SNPR Mid | MSRP $150
Perfect for walking the dog, hanging out at home, or running errands, the KO-Z SNPR is the ultimate comfort shoe. The KO-Z SNPR is made from EcoTan sheepskin and EcoTan cow suede and features a 10mm wool interior, and a looped wool insole for natural thermoregulation. These slippers are perfect for chilly nights and brisk mornings. The unique Xponent midsole features multilayer CM EVA foam with gradient density, so the softest cushioning is right at your feet.
KO-Z SLIDE | MSRP $130
The Slide is having a moment this year and Deckers X Lab was ready for it. The KO-Z SLIDE starts with five layers of foam to rest your foot upon, with ultra-soft memory foam closest to the foot. The memory foam embraces your foot’s shape and provides a delightful cushion sensation that helps stabilize the foot. In the arch is a gift from our sheep friends – wool, which provides natural cushioning and moisture management. On top of the foot is thermoregulating sheepskin in an easy-going classic slide, with digitally printed webbing for an adjustable-fit foothold. With the addition of a rocker in the midfoot, KO-Z sandals stay with your foot as you walk or run.

Whether for post-race recovery or a marathon of video conference calls, the simplest of footwear has been injected with extra doses of comfort in the places it matters most.

The memory foam embraces your foot’s shape and gives back a delightful cushion sensation that helps stabilize the foot.
