Christopher Nyung and Jokum Hallin’s Swedish stalwart Our Legacy is a purveyor in combining minimalism with technical details, and its new Splinter sneaker shows exactly how it’s done.

Kicking off with a Vibram Arch-Control sole unit, which underpins many of Our Legacy’s in-house sneakers, the Splinter features an upper that’s made from a PVC-based textile mesh that’s then overlayed with a range of Italian synthetic textile materials, replicating leather on areas such as the vamp, eyestay placket, rear quarter and heel, and around the toe box’s bumper.

These materials curve around the sneaker and, at the rear, extend beyond the collar to create a heel strap that’s both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Flat waxed laces are threaded through rubber eyelets, leading the eye to the tongue that’s embroidered with Our Legacy branding.

Retailing for £320 GBP (approximately $430 USD), the Our Legacy Splinter can be seen above and is available purchase in-store and online now.
