I’m absolutely in love with my 1587s! I grabbed these right before a 3 week trip to Europe with the family. I wanted to travel with minimal clothing and was looking for a versatile pair of shoes that could go casual, and be dressed up as well. I am so DAMN pleased with my choice. These are probably one of my most stylish pair of shoes I own and definitely the most comfortable leather sneakers I have. I have gotten a bunch of compliments already in the first week of wear, Italians are shocked this is a US based brand. So much of a wow factor. I also love the ‘1587’ branding on the back, it makes me proud as an Asian to wear it with SWAGGER. Thank you to the 1587 team for making an amazing pair of shoes and for representing our community so well.

Amazing quality kicks - real leather and exquisite stitching. Although, there was a delay in getting them shipped, Adam was very communicative the whole time so I knew I was in good hands. Love the Asian American pride! Keep doing what y’all do, 1587!

I first learned about this company through an Asian network and then heard an interview on Dear Asian Americans so I had to order a pair of kicks. I just loved the story behind their brand. Anyway, I placed an order and received the shoes so incredibly fast. I had a bit of a snafu with my order, but the customer service was more than amazing (which tells you a lot about a company). I gotta say that I love, love these shoes - you can feel the quality of the material and they’re super comfortable. I’ve never had a pair of sneakers where I felt like so much thought, love and care has been put into them…by people who represent my community. I’ll be wearing these proudly and unapologetically!

Very comfortable shoes that are easy to clean! I normally do not wear white because of how easily they get dirty, but the design of these are made to resist the issue and bring convenience to style. These also match the hoodie, so I wear them together for a winning combination of street fashion at it's finest!

What a great pair of shoes. I gifted these to a co-presenter so that we both can have 1587's on while presenting at an Asian leadership conference. Our topic was to better understand the identity we have as Asians across the multiple identity spectrum, where it's Asian American, Black Asian, Hapa... we all need to be consciously aware of the strengths we have and to be intentional in using them. The shoes were a way we presented a conscious reminder to empower ourselves in tapping into our strengths. They were great in comfort and illustration.

Love the style and comfort. Soft leather and didn’t need any break in time as they were super comfy from the first time I tried them on! Went on a business trip to dodger stadium and had a full day and feet felt great! Love the personal touch with the note by the founder and loved the Chinese snacks that were included too!

My shoes were comfortable the moment I slipped them on and now it’s my go to for slightly formal looking kicks which goes well with a dress or a pair of jeans. Much better than the Stan smiths or the Nike Air Force shoes.

I have a white pair of AP87s from a year ago that I love so I decided to get the black to match with more business casual outfits. I work at a law firm and my attorney was impressed with the quality and design! They are the most comfortable every day shoe I’ve ever owned!

I contacted the team to ask a sizing question and inquire about additional stock. I received a prompt and personable response. I purchased the FAHM shirt and AP87 all whites, which are easily the most comfortable and my favorite shoe of this style. I consistently check the website for any new drops.

I just received my AP87s and they are great! Beautiful construction and details, and they accommodate my custom orthotics very well. These fit like they were custom made for me! I am also happy to support 1587 and the very purposeful branding. As 3rd generation Filipino American, it’s wonderful to acknowledge and celebrate the first year Filipinos were documented to be in Morro Bay, California. My grandfather joined the US Navy from the Philippines in 1918 and served over 30 years. Much respect for my grandfather and our many other seafaring ancestors! Remembering them every time I wear these.

The shoes look great and they're really comfortable. I have only two very small complaints. The laces are stiff and waxy so on Day One, they wouldn't stay tied. I rinsed them in hot water and they're much better now. Also, in longer jeans that hang over the back of the shoe, the red suede rubs off and stains the white rubber of the shoe. I was able to clean it off and have sprayed the suede with Scotch Guard. Hopefully that will help.

Really sharp looking and high quality. Having a bit of trouble breaking them in as the break in the left foot where it flexes is hitting me poorly. Guessing they just need more miles.

LUXURY IS IN THE DETAILS

The best materials (leathers, rubbers etc…) in the world go into these sneakers. They will look Forever Fresh for a lifetime.
  • Full Grain Italian Leather

    Our luxury leather is the best in the world. It is extremely soft and doesn’t need to use plastic paints to cover up imperfections. Unlike cheaper leathers it won’t crack, or lose its shape. Our leather will mold to the shape of your feet over time, providing that custom fit and enhanced comfort. The durability of genuine leather means these are built to last.

  • Goodbye Creasing

    While all sneakers will crease, our does the minimal amount possible. We tested 100s of different leathers and backers, and found some that provide extreme comfort without extreme creasing. These keep the FOB (fresh out of the box) look!

  • Waxed Laces

    We know how important it is to look fresh…nobody wants dirty laces. So, we took the extra step of waxing our laces to keep them looking clean for longer. If they ever get dirty, let us know and we’ll send you a new pair.

  • Natural Rubber Bottom

    Our 100% biodegradable natural rubber is extremely soft while maintaining its shape. It’s like you’re walking on a cloud

  • Calf Leather Interior Lining

    The inside of the shoe is covered in supple calf leather for an amazing feel, and lifetime of comfort and good smells. So cheap cloth that absorbs smells!

  • Unapologetically Asian American

    We are Asian. We are Asian American. As good as our shoes look and feel, when we’re inside, we leave our shoes at the door. That’s how we were raised.

THE LOVE IS REAL

Fits nicely.

Frequently
Asked Questions

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.

What makes you an Asian American Brand?
 

1587 is Asian American owned and operated. We use our brand and platform to shine the spotlight on our Asian American stories, our style, and celebrate Asian American culture, authentically.

Why are the sneakers made in Italy?
 

Italy has the finest sneakers artisans and is home to the world’s best materials. While it is more expensive to build our sneakers there, the quality is unmatched.  We want the highest quality sneakers that will look fresh for a lifetime with heavy use.

Which factories produce the sneakers?
 

We use the same materials and factories as many of the major fashion houses that begin with L, G, and Y. 

What is the Zero Risk policy?
 

If you have a size issue or any other thing arises, we have a no questions asked policy for 30 days.
