Although known for their sharp, clean designs, ETQ Amsterdam recognizes that there’s a time and place for something different. That’s why they’re introducing a new line of sneakers that experiment with new materials, new details and more possibilities for cultivation. The Capsule Collection will begin with three style variations of the classic ETQ mid top, to include models in marbled leather and Nappa leather, with new features and details that take ETQ’s signature silhouette to a new place.
As for the brand, our most cherished treasure find of the year actually, ETQ Amsterdam began back in 2010 with the belief that one should never have to pay only for a label, rather than for the quality of the product itself. Step by step, that belief grew into a range of exceptional footwear. And all of ETQ’s products are handmade by experienced craftsmen at a small, family-owned factory in Portugal. The best traditions of shoemaking refined into leather footwear of remarkable quality.
“We could tell you all kinds of stories, but that’s not who we are. We’re honest. Clean. Timeless. Exceptional. And so is our product”, says Robin Engelen, spokesperson of the brand.
The Capsule Collection will be available in limited quantities at selected retailers, like Hypebeast, SSENSE, Subtype and Feature. A high top design will be available, in limited quantities, exclusively in ETQ’s webshop.
Remember: According to Design Father, ETQ Amsterdam was responsible for the absolute best shoe of the season passed: the the Desert Tops (in navy blue, simply fantastic).
