INITIUM: a renewed approach

INITIUM: a renewed approach

August 30, 2018

To define the final materials and colours of INITIUM was an exciting task. After several tryouts, we reached the exactly outcome we were looking for.

Like Maxwell Lund on his design process, we looked at the upper of the shoe as a blank canvas and started testing the layers.

After finding the suitable approach, we started constructing the shoe. And here it is the INITIUM Gunpowder Grey: a low top sneaker with cut out panels, displayed assymetrically, with different textures.

Handcrafted by Portuguese shoemakers, the shoe is composed by soft split suede, perforated nappa and floater leather, in three colours with vibrant lining, and the white rubber outsole includes the Pensole’s signature. The sneaker contains round matching laces, hotstamp details and padded tongue and cuff.
