Born and raised in Amsterdam, Filling Pieces is a label that never stays still. Never satisfied with a collection, the brand rotates new styles around a core of permanent designs each season. Even though the collections are constantly evolving, distinctive style threads connect them, unifying them under the Filling Pieces name. Bridging the gap between streetwear and high fashion, the brand combines premium materials and creative flair with sports-inspired silhouettes. Filling Pieces Autumn/Winter 2019 sees the sports inspirations diversify, from tennis to skateboarding, but the premium nappa leathers and Italian suedes remain – just how we like it. Here are our top 5 picks from Filling Pieces Autumn/Winter 2019 collection.

Green / Orange Low Court Plain Sneakers

Filling Pieces Green / Orange Low Court Plain Sneakers

This lightweight sneaker features premium suede and nappa leather uppers arranged in panels to emphasise the sporty roots. Taking design cues from classic tennis sneakers, the silhouette is lightweight and flexible and, like all Filling Pieces offerings, boasts an in-house designed sole. The Plain Light sole makes Low Court the perfect everyday footwear option.

White Low Kyoto Jet Elara Sneakers

Filling Pieces White Low Kyoto Jet Elara Sneakers

Chunky styles have dominated the attention of the sneaker world over recent seasons so it’s only right that for Filling Pieces Autumn/Winter 2019 we saw what the Dutch label could do. Kyoto Jet Elara is a running silhouette featuring a Jet Livetech sole for lightweight comfort. The immaculate white nappa leather uppers are reinforced structurally and stylistically by multiple geometric panels.

Taupe Jet Runners

Filling Pieces Taupe Jet Runners

Built on the same sole as the Low Kyoto Jet Elara model, the Jet Runner has a more premium feel to it. The uppers, crafted from premium suede, have a stripped-back appearance with fewer details for minimal appeal. Combine the sports tech sole unit with soft suede uppers and the result is a sneaker that’s perfect for everyday city living.

Dark Green / White Low Cage GF Sneakers

Filling Pieces Light Blue / Blue Jet Elara Sneakers

The retro running silhouette comes into its own with a lively blue colourway. A mixture of premium nubuck, matte nappa leather and mesh results in a tension between the world of luxury footwear and that of performance trainers. This highlight sneaker is a staple in any off-duty rotation.

Filling Pieces Dark Green / White Low Cage GF Sneakers

For nostalgic reasons, we think this is our pick of the Filling Pieces Autumn/Winter 2019 collection. Making reference to skateboarding styles popular in the early ‘00s, the Low Cage GF silhouettes boasts an exaggerated sole and lightly padded upper handcrafted from nubuck, suede, mesh and matte nappa leather. This is a completely casual sneaker that deserves to be styled with loose fitting trousers to finish the coveted ‘00s look.
