An Homage to Minimalism

In our mission to celebrate minimalism through timeless, iconic designs, in the last months we’ve worked extensively on a new fantastic sneakers concept: Lower, Lighter, Still Iconic. We have maximised comfort, choosing the smoothest italian leather and adopting a new construction technique that increases the glove-effect feeling, especially when wearing them sock-less.

An Unstructured Soul

Working with highly skilled manufactures, we’ve been able to realise our design inspiration of a totally unstructured sneaker, that could give you the feeling of wearing a glove.

As we focus on creating long lasting products, all the upper has been reinforced internally and we added an extra touch, that will improve consistently the comfort when wearing them without socks.

 
 
 

Same Premium Quality

Superior materials wouldn’t be enough to make a superior product.

We choose carefully the softest Italian leather, making sure it’s sourced and tanned ethically in Italy.

 
 
 

A Lower Profile

Design-wise, we wanted to have a lower profile, especially on the foot neck.

We removed all padding, focusing on giving you the unique feeling of a skin on skin unbeatable comfort.
