Anna Sui has teamed up with U.K. brand FitFlop to create the Shakoha boot for fall ’09.

The collaboration blends the two brands’ aesthetics — Sui’s bohemian fashion with FitFlop’s patent-pending Microwobbleboard midsole technology. The result is a double-faced shearling boot, available in dusty blue, chocolate and black, designed to give the wearer a workout while walking. 

“Anna is a genius, who, with her boundary-free design, has reinvented fashion, and we, with our biomechanical take on how your shoes should reenergize your body, are reinventing footwear,” FitFlop founder Marcia Kilgore said in a statement.

The Shakoha boots will be sold exclusively at Net-a-porter.com for 175 pounds starting Nov. 10.
