King Of Soles Trainers

With a huge number of footwear labels out there already, is there room for another? We’ve all heard of the classic, Adidas, Nike, New Balance and Converse to name only a few, and of course those individual brands have their own classic silhouettes and collections too. But have you ever heard of a pair of trainers coming out of Ireland?

King Of Soles is a start up trainer company hailing from Ireland, and could be the very first sneaker brand to come out of the emerald isle. The inspiration comes from the custom sneakers culture, where artists customised and paint existing shoes to create one-offs or extremely limited runs. These trainers can go for a few hundred pounds, which is quite a lot of money to spend on some custom trainers.

King Of Soles will have 2 designs available from the Kickstarter; The RastaRunners and PacAttack, with designs in ode to Bob Marley and Jamaica and Pacman respectively, and come in a high top form. They are made from Premium Action Leather Upper, with a Mesh Lining, Chambray Insole, TPR Outsole, and a set of Custom Screw On Lace Tips, with King Of Soles and the Crown, laser etched onto them. These have been created after a monster search of over 10,000 manufacturers from 17 countries, finally a manufacturer was found which focuses on shorter runs and quality.

You can pre-order your pay from the Kickstarter page here, they come in at €70. If you just want to support the brand, you can back them with a pledge too.
