Despite the flurry of style advice that comes with every new season, one constant remains; the hunger for new sneakers. But it’s not all about minimal, clean-lined leather styles as the rise of statement sneakers means that there is a whole new world of sneakers to explore. Thankfully, there’s a perfect new pair of sneakers for everyone this season with the latest drop from Filling Pieces.
Built with the brand’s classic approach to innovation, the autumn/winter collection sees the progression of Filling Pieces’ classic low top silhouette in a range of neutral colourways. The introduction of autumnal silhouettes adds to the masculine, innovative edge of the brand which can be seen through the unique stitched uppers and re-imagined lace techniques of the new Apache Sneaker.
Take a closer look at our favourites from the latest Filling Pieces collection below and be sure to check out our ‘How to Wear: Filling Pieces’ guide before you lace up your favourite pair.
An exclusive new offering for Autumn/Winter 2016, the Elasticated Perforated Green Low Top Sneakers have a distinctive midsole made of luxury green leather that is delicately detailed with an all-over perforated design and a technical camo-elasticated strap. The intricate perforated design is combined with subtle stitch detailing to the heel and the contrasting Filling Pieces gum sole. Wear yours with a tapered grey trouser, like the NN07 Oslo Trousers, to allow the sneakers to operate as the focal point of our outfit.
The Apache Low Sneaker is the definitive silhouette in the Filling Pieces ‘Independence’ series as it epitomises the brand’s ability to push boundaries through innovative design. Entirely handcrafted, the Apache is a modern take on the brand’s classic Low Top featuring moccasin-inspired stitching and diagonal laces that stretch down from the upper centre to the mid-body for a snug fit. Again, the two-tone design, with the grey suede uppers matched to the gum sole, make the Apache an easy to style to wear with anything; particularly a plain white tee, such as one from Norse Projects.
The Filling Pieces One Strap is made for comfort as the sneakers are handcrafted from a cushioned leather upper that incorporates padded ankle cuffs and the distinctive single strap finish for added comfort. Set on a thick ripple sole for a natural fit, the two-tone sneakers are complete with the requisite qualities you expect from a luxury sneaker; exquisite patina leathers, coated cotton laces and delicate, precise details. Wear with a simple Black Slim-fit Jean from Han Kjobenhavn and a piece of tonal outwear, like the Norse Projects Padded Thor Jacket.
