THE LOVE IS REAL
Absolutely LOVE my AP87's!
Absolutely LOVE my AP87's! While I wouldn't consider myself a sneakerhead, I freaking love shoes -- especially ones that radiate quality and comfort. The leather on these things doesn't just look good, it FEELS good on your feet! How a shoe can be soft AND comfortable is beyond me, but my favorite shoes hit both those qualities and these do so in spades. The best part? The hidden messages inside the shoes. As a Korean adoptee, I am trying to figure out what Asian America looks like for me; these shoes are so important to that.Read More...

These sneakers are amazing!
These sneakers are amazing! I got bored buying the same low quality AF1s, and now that I'm working and more of an adult (ha), I wanted to elevate my sneakers. The leather and natural rubber bottom feel amazing, like clouds on my feet. The leather is so butter soft, and the rubber sole has so much cushioning. I had no idea how bad the AF1 stuff was until I got my feet into these!!! Also, love the companies mission and celebrating Asian American cultureRead More...
Why is Italian Full Grain leather and natural rubber important?
Full grain leather will look amazing for a lifetime. It resists creases and warping, and can be easily cleaned with a cloth and water. Natural rubber is incredibly soft and durable, and has a high rebound rate so it keeps its shape over thousands of miles. Commercial sneakers from big brands use cheap and hard leather covered in plastic paint (to hide imperfections), and this causes deep creasing and cracks over time. Their rubber is a thin and hard synthetic that isn’t comfortable and loses its shape in a matter of months.
