Athletics Footwear was founded in London, England by a team of the industries best - Chris Kyvetos, founder of Sneakerboy and former Mytheresa men’s buying director; Neil Beeson, formerly of Puma; and Myles O’Meally, founder of Areté and former Nike, Alexander McQueen and Raf Simons footwear designer. This team strives to bring back a bit of simplicity to the “hyped” sneaker industry. Together they have developed Athletics Footwear to take the classic elements of design and create the balance of minimal, modern, but traditional.
Since launching in October of 2019, Athletics Footwear has found the perfect blend of nostalgia and the future through its 2 pairs of trainers: The Athletics One and the One 2. These sneakers are 1980’s inspired with a streamlined silhouette and the traditional tones of white and grey all designed and made with the newest most advanced production techniques. Athletics Footwear captures a seamless profile with the advancement of no stitching across the upper shoe. With Athletic Footwear’s simplistic approach to design, it makes it easily wearable for any lifestyle in any environment.
The ROOTED team believes this brand will be a great addition, “These silhouettes are a strong addition to the ROOTED brand matrix. The simplicity yet timelessness of the styles make these pieces extremely wearable in all different environments & landscapes." We look forward to you enjoying Athletics Footwear’s timeless design just as much as we do.
