Exclusive to Footasylum, Forena takes a trend-led approach to contemporary footwear, using real leathers, suedes and technical materials to blend the best of the runway with modern sneaker culture. 

Born from the Swedish meaning of the word unite, Forena is inspired by the eclectic interests of today’s girl. Bold colour blocking, exaggerated silhouettes and mixed textures launch a debut collection that is as feminine as it is forward-thinking. The Supreme Chunky Slip Trainer mixes a suede upper with elastic panels on an exaggerated sole unit – a worthy addition to the chunky sneaker trend.

The Skye Runner uses a sock-like neoprene upper for a sleeker take on the runner, with a contrasting rubber sole and statement metallic chain detailing to the cuff. 

The Forena SS18 collections isn’t all about athletic styles either. The first drop includes a collection of slides with signature, fashion-forward detailing; from glitter patches to watermelon motifs.
