Amsterdam based Architecture student Guillaume Philibert spotted a gap in the market for premium quality footwear that won’t break the bank and with a dream to bridge the gap between streetwear and high end fashion, he then began formulating ideas to create unique shoe at an affordable price. In 2009 his first Filling Pieces collection was born, consisting of the brand’s signature ‘Low Top’ design. The rest is history.

The brand’s collection now has a range of unique contemporary models, all handmade in Portugal using quality Italian materials. Filling Pieces stays true to their Amsterdam origins, however they have now grown to become a global brand that takes inspiration from people and styles from across the world.

Filling Pieces’ high quality, original designs at affordable prices means that everyone is able to experience true luxury footwear.

Our top pick is the brand’s Fundament Ripple trainer, coming in their signature ‘Low Top’ design. The trainers are expertly handcrafted with fine leathers, to bring a true element of luxury to any man’s footwear collection. Coming in a black upper, the simple yet stylish trainers comprise of a lace fastening front and a contrasting treaded rubber outsole. Minimalist brand detailing on the tongue of the trainer adds a touch of class.
