both is a footwear brand exploring the endless possibilities of one material: rubber.
Working from this premise, since 2014 a selection of international collaborators have helped bring the project to life, rst through establishing a production base and identifying the market, then in 2016 with the opening of a creative studio and brand headquarters in Paris.
Looking to ll a gap in the market for high quality, minimal, durable footwear with a strong identity, both launched its rst collection for SS17. O ering a variety of timeless classics with a twist, both focuses on clean shapes and strong forms highlighting balance between simplicity and ingenuity.
Mixing exquisite craftsmanship and constant innovation, rubber’s natural plasticity is shaped to the desire of an evolutive European creative team working in Paris. Following the same ethic, both selects the best fabrics and high quality leathers to manufacture shoes to wear every day, both timeless and creative.
At the heart of our process is an exploration of balance: in the textures of our designs, the application of our techniques and the contrast in our concepts.
