Sensing a gap in the footwear market between "haute couture and street couture," designer Guillaume Philibert founded Filling Pieces in 2009 to fill the void with quality products and great design. Four years later, the Amsterdam-based label continues to churn out silhouettes that are both sporty and chic - sneakers made in Portugal from exotic, fair trade leathers and premium materials. Filling Pieces' new Spring/Summer 2013 collection features riffs on the original Low Top -- Philibert's first design -- in Polish salmon skin, genuine python from Thailand, and Australian ostrich skin. More recent styles like the Mountain Cut and Oxford Cut, meanwhile, resemble hiking boots and cap-toe oxfords and are rendered in the same adventurous, globally-sourced materials. Should you be searching out "filling pieces" for the gaps in your own footwear arsenal, look for the new collection now at our online store.
