Filling Pieces is an Amsterdam based footwear label, established in 2009 by owner and designer Guillaume Philibert Chin. During his study Architecture Guillaume noticed he was missing an affordable premium sneaker, made out of the highest quality of leather/fabric. Therefor Guillaume started to design, wanting to bridge the gap between the street wear and high-end footwear. At the end of 2009 the first Filling Pieces collection was born, consisting of one unique silhouette: the “Lowtop”. With only 50 pairs produced in Asia Guillaume started to pitch the model at friends, family and stores. The first reactions were positive and that’s how the first sales began…Nowadays the collection is manufactured in a small but well experienced factory in Portugal. All the models are handmade, using only the finest leathers, nubuck and other fabrics based on an Italian Margom vulcanized rubber cup sole.
