In recent years, Filling Pieces has grown into a fixture of the casual shoe space, all while defining the growing genre of luxury lifestyle sneakers. Looking ahead to this fall and winter, the Amsterdam-based brand is playing no games, offering a wide variety of silhouettes and material plays that impress. While at Agenda Las Vegas, we caught the strong showing in person at Liberty Fairs.
Keying on the Native and Ghost silos, both models maintain the unique ¾ cut that evades their contemporaries and competitors. Set to rich wheat suede, the Native plays with moccasin detailing on the toe box stitch work, juxtaposed in luxe fashion by a sculpted ankle collar.
Conversely, the burgundy Ghost keeps things a tad quieter, relying on strong lines and shaping while still sporting a similar cut and collar. Making the most of rich earth tones and smooth suede, get a preview of these autumn/winter launches from Filling Pieces in the photos below.
