Filling Pieces is an Amsterdam based footwear label that was launched in 2009 by designer, Guillaume Philibert. The brand aims to bridge the gap between designer and street style, by combining fresh designs with the finest leathers and the softest suedes. Filling Pieces provide high-end footwear using premium materials to produce luxury footwear such as these low top woven gradient sneakers.
This signature style has a body made of exclusive hand-woven black tanned suede, detailed in a special Gradient woven pattern. Combined with premium matte black tanned nubuck on the upper. Based on a contrasting white vulcanized Filling Pieces ‘Ripple’ Sole. The trainers have a leather lining, white ripple sole, waxed cotton laces, and branding embossed on the tongue. Members from the SLOAN! team were recently selected to take part in the BMW Sail Racing Academy 2016 and one of the crew was seen sporting a pair of Filling Pieces Low Top Woven Sneakers in Black on the dock of the marina in Palma de Mallorca in Spain.
While studying architecture, Guillaume Philibert realized that there weren’t any premium high-quality sneakers out there for a reasonable price. Recognizing both a challenge and an opportunity, he started to design – following his vision of creating a unique shoe. A shoe that would bridge the gap between streetwear and high-end fashion.
At the end of that same year, the first Filling Pieces collection was born, consisting of one unique silhouette: the ‘Low Top’. Guillaume pitched this model to friends, family and stores, and it instantly became clear that everybody loved it.
Today the Filling Pieces collection consists of a variety of unique and contemporary models. All of them handmade with great care in Portugal, using only the finest Italian materials. Staying true to its Amsterdam roots, Filling Pieces also source inspiration from travelling the world and encountering the great styles and people all over the globe.
Filling Pieces is swiftly becoming a real global brand recognised for always ensuring the highest quality and original designs yet maintain affordable prices for true designer quality footwear.
