Rei Kawakubo has a pair. That’s all you need to know. Launched in 2019, Athletics Footwear was established in oder to address a dearth of paired-back, simple footwear. They’ve since dropped the Athletics One and the One 2 which feature no visible sewing, no stitching on the upper, just one piece of leather. Resulting in a fuss-free, clean shoe fit for fashion royalty.
