We are excited to celebrate Filipino American Heritage Month! Filipinos were the first to arrive in the US at 1587 and start the Asian American story. We collaborated with the country's leading Batok artist to produce a shirt with so much meaning! Wear this with pride! Once we sell out, these shirts will never be made again.
Wow, shirts are almost sold out! Second printing (different color) news coming soon.
- Female Model: 5'2'' & 103 pounds & wears a small
- Male Model: 5'7'' & 160 pounds and wears a medium
- Models are wearing a different color/design, but shirts have same sizing.
Perfectly oversized to look purposeful. This means a wider front, larger/longer sleeves, and a higher and wider collar. The shirt is constructed with heavy duty 6.5 oz cotton and washed with natural enzymes to give it the worn in feel. Sam and Adam's go to style! Pls note once shirts are sold out, they are gone forever!
These shirts have been pre-washed 20+ times to give the ultimate worn in look and feel. Expect very little shrinkage in the wash/dryer, though may shrink a little on high heat.
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.
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!
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
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.
What makes you an Asian American Brand?

Why are the sneakers made in Italy?
