More specifically, it’s a semi-circle – I’m talking about these very classy geometric sneakers by THEY based in New York. If plain white sneakers are too basic for you, these minimalist sneakers have just the right amount of edginess and quirkiness.
One very important and distinctive point about these sneakers: the semi-circle isn’t just a print-on. The shoemakers literally stitch it on seamlessly with the rest of the leather panels. Check it out in the close-up below:
The co-founders of the brand, Angela Lin and Jack Lin (brother) came from a Japanese footwear family with over 30 years of industrial experience. So in terms of quality and craftsmanship, this is an unwritten seal of approval (for me.)
“We wanted to create a sneaker that offers both the simplicity of the white sneaker and yet has an accentuated highlight that sets it apart.” I think they did it.
Retailed at $359, these sneakers are reasonably priced given the material and design. There’s no reason to not like these sneakers if you’re a fan of minimalist sneakers.
