While transparency has become a buzzword for most of the brands making our garments, sneakers have remained shrouded in secrecy. Do you know how and where your shoes are getting made? If you want to pay the same attention to what you’re putting on your feet as you do to the hand-sewn button-downs you choose to wear, consider these sneakers from Polyforma. Handcrafted in Italy by a group of artisans, each pair has a face behind the name. Made with Italian leather uppers and leather covered foam insoles, the sneakers will surprisingly not break the bank. Check out the company’s Kickstarter which ends on 8/13.
