OVER A TYPICAL DINNER, ON AN AVERAGE NIGHT IN MELBOURNE, MY MATE, MY BROTHER AND I DECIDED TO MAKE A SNEAKER. ONCE WE SHOOK ON IT, WE THEN JOINTLY EMBARKED ON AN ADVENTURE OF BOTH THE HIGHEST OF UPS AND THE LOWEST OF DOWNS – A JOURNEY THAT EVEN THE MOST HARDENED ENTREPRENEUR WOULD HAVE CUT SHORT.
We certainly have lost many things along the way; however our biggest loss was sadly one of our partners – our friend and business partner. We have immortalized him in our first release as a testament to him and that very first hand shake that took place all those years ago.
OUR LOVE AND PASSION FOR SNEAKER CULTURE BEGAN WHEN WE WERE KIDS IN THE LATE 80’S. WHEN VINTAGE MODELS WERE RE-RELEASED, IT WAS AS IF WE HAD ACCESS TO OUR OWN PERSONAL TIME MACHINE – ONE THAT ALLOWED A SECOND CHANCE TO COLLECT OUR FAVOURITES FROM A PREVIOUS TIME.
Friday nights became a weekly ritual – a time to share what we had discovered and what had been purchased; an opportunity to review new fabric innovations and colour combinations. we did not know it then – but we would soon be discussing how we could make our own mark on sneaker culture both locally and globally.
“OPENING THE PACKAGING WAS LIKE A JOURNEY THROUGH A MODERN DAY PANDORA'S BOX TO GET TO THE GOLD.”
Andy Altman, Why Not Associates, UK
KINGDOM IS A MELBOURNE BASED INDEPENDENT SNEAKER COMPANY FOCUSED ON LIMITED EDITION RELEASES. KINGDOM WAS BORN OUT OF A LOVE OF SNEAKER DESIGN AND HOW THIS CAN BE PUSHED FURTHER. DESIGN AND CRAFTSMANSHIP ARE ALWAYS OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES.
WE HAVE SPENT OVER FOUR YEARS PROTOTYPING AND SOURCING MATERIALS - COUNTLESS ITERATIONS, EXPERIMENTATION, TESTING AND CREATING HAVE GONE IN TO PRODUCE OUR FIRST KINGDOM RELEASE.
We have developed a brand our team can be proud of; we have triumphed to produce a sneaker that we personally stand behind as a testament to our inspiration and love of design and sneaker culture.
WE HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR KINGDOM SNEAKERS.
