it was midway through last year we first heard of the upcoming release of a new footwear company out of NYC, Aprix Sports, with its first style offering a clean and simple set of lines, alongside their obvious sports and naval theme, we were very impressed, their site has now been updated with a view of their collection, stockists and more info, and the shoes are available in NYC at Nom De Guerre.
"Inspired by the term “Grand Prix”, the European motor racing series and the concept of [a] sporting lifestyle.
APRIX produces simply designed, beautifully manufactured sporting shoes for people with slightly more adventurous lifestyles and subtle tastes.
Aprix is a fusion of its three owners; Skiny, a European film director and amateur race car driver with 12 years of experience in fashion and film, Brendon Babenzien, a recognized and respected American apparel designer raised on the east coast around a wholesome surfing and boating lifestyle and the third partner Spoon Singh, an adventurer and business entrepreneur has spent a lifetime traveling the remote corners of the planet on a motorcycle and surfing its waves.
The refined palettes of these three very different people is combined to create performance rooted shoes with a less obtrusive “old world” styling.
From sailing shoes, to driving shoes, golfing, tennis and rowing APRIX will present the public with an alternative to the high tech or flamboyant styling currently available in the market place."
