COMMA is the first style launched by We Are Underdogs that is immediately available for purchase in two colourways (Carbon and Bone) and both in man and women's sizes.
After explaining how the sneaker was conceptualised, it is time to talk about its materials. The upper of the first colour includes buttery calf nubuck and, on the second, premium calf suede. Both sneakers have tonal soft calf nappa detail, vachetta leather pull loops, padded lather insole and full leather lining.
With a real rubber cup sole, they also include hand stitch detail, braided laces and stainless metal lace tips – there are no raw edges. Like the three previous styles released, also COMMA was handcrafted by Portuguese shoemakers in a limited edition.
The intent of this Kaito Choy's design is to capture a progressive style in a minimalist manner and to push boundaries of a everyday wearable piece.

His background of multiple cultures and experiences affect his design process.
We like to think that we are not only selling sneakers.
We consider ourselves a creative platform for a reason.
One of the most fulfilling feeling we have is that of seeing that we also contribute to the education of the designers that cooperate with us and of our followers.
So, we were never ashamed of showing the "process" that leads to the final product.
Showing what's possible, the horrible pullovers, the failed samples... the things you normally don't get to see.
