After dropping off its first “Inner Circle” collection last year, Amsterdam-based imprint Filling Pieces returns for its sophomore 2017 spring/summer season with the introduction of the Runner Mid Ballastic Strap. Building on the Fuse Runner Low and Astro Runner Jinx, the new silhouette is meant to blend innovation, technical design and athletic performance. An asymmetrical neoprene and micro-perforated upper dominates a tongue-less design that creates the sock-like entry favored by multiple brands today. FP heel padding and elastic band Velcro straps complete the kicks which sit on an Italian-made Sac sole.
Founder and creative director Guillaume Philibert said, “Due to the success of our first Inner Circle collection we felt the appreciation and that gave us the confidence to build forth on the direction we have chosen. Inner Circle, being a true passion project, for us to really think outside the realm of luxury footwear and come up with a more contemporary athletic approach. This second season of Inner Circle is a direct sequel that highlights the contrasts between progressive luxury and modern athletic design with a touch of fashion to it.” The rest of the collection features the other silhouettes in bright hues like green, yellow, peach and burgundy just in time for the warmest days of the year.
